Janey-Mac Crazy Alphabet Wall Decal Review and $30 Gift Card Giveaway

When we repainted and reorganized my daughters room, we were left with a very large and empty purple wall.  Which wasn't my favorite.  I really wanted to create a fun focal wall that would be appropriate for my young daughter for years to come.

I briefly considered buying a variety of wooden alphabet letters and painting them to match the room.  But after thinking about how long it would take to paint, sand, and hang all of those letters, I quickly vetoed the idea.  I still really wanted something similar in the room but I did not want to do it myself.

I found exactly what I was looking for at Janey-Mac.com


I loved that the letters were all different styles and sizes and that the colors were completely customizable.  Looking at the colors online I decided to go with aqua, bubblegum, violet, and key lime for my girls room.

When we got our Crazy Alphabet vinyl decal in the mail we cut out our letters and got to work.  I accidentally threw the instructions for installing the vinyl away, so it took us a little bit of time to figure out what we were doing.  But once we got the hang of it, the process was fairly easy.  And our room went from this to this -




I've never done vinyl decals before, but I was really pleased with the result!  It gave the room lots of color and character without ruining our paint and walls.

To Buy - This summer we are going to have to transform our dance themed nursery into a boys oasis, and I am definitely going to get more vinyl to transform the room.  It's easy to use, looks great, and is much less expensive then buying large artwork for the walls.

    98. We're looking to decorate for twin girls and I want the nursery to be super cute this time (my son's never ended as I envisioned).

      I LOVE the Avery Jane Monogram (to go over their beds) and the Swirl Tree with Birds and Owls to go on the opposite wall with a piece of furniture.
