For some reason or another I'm obsessed with contact paper. Maybe it's because it's an easy way to transform objects, walls, anything really. It might be because shelf liner is cheap, or maybe it's the renter in me that loves how temporary it is. Whatever the case, it's a fact that I love vinyl. And it's a fact that I love to DIY, which is how this customized vinyl wall decal came to be.
Hello to my fellow renters! Here's the situation: I've been fighting with my kitchen ever since I moved into my apartment. It's completely functional, but it's not ideal for the following reasons: it's way too small, the cabinets do nothing to help visually, and the walls have been stained from cooking accidents of years past. I wanted to class the joint up a bit, and decided to install a fake backsplash by way of removable vinyl wallpaper.
Although this spider & web vinyl decal ($22) from Vinyl On The Go would be PERFECT for Halloween, it's so cool, I'd be tempted to leave up all year.
If arachnids aren't your thing, how about this bird in cage ($15)? Very Raven-y, no?
These re-stickable photo frames from Photojojo are so clever I can hardly stand it. Made of premium, pliable vinyl--just like those fancy wall decals--the frames not only stick to walls but to windows too. (I wonder how they'd look on a window framing a photo transfer? Hmmmm.) A set of 8 will set you back 20 big ones--or 2 for 36.
