Laundry Room Decals

So far in the laundry room saga we have painted, installed shelving, made a mirror and decorated.

To finally finish up the last part of the laundry room I decided to add some custom vinyl decor. I had one wall still with nothing on it but due to the size of the room I didn’t want to put anything on it that would feel like it was sticking out into the room. Vinyl stickers seemed like a good solution.

After doing some searching online I came across two different ideas. One was a cute laundry room sign and the other was bubbles.

First up I created a little sign using the silhouette design software. I cut out a frame I purchased from the silhouette online store. Then I cut a title and block of words from white and red. I love the font I used for the red but it was so curvy and small that it was really hard to pull off the extra vinyl. I also had a bunch of dots in between the words but all of those came off. Oh well close enough.

I then attempted to layer them on the transfer paper. Unfortunately I didn’t do a very good job so everything was a little off.

So instead of relying on on my lining thing up on the transfer paper I ended up adhering each layer separately.

The nice thing about the transfer paper though is that you can move the vinyl around before choosing the final spot. As you can see I put up the red lettering first. I did loose a few letters along the way that I had to move by hand.

It took some time to get all the pieces smooth and placed where I wanted them but it did work out ok.

When you step back you can see that the sign is centered between the washer and dryer.

To fill up the rest of this empty wall a little more I purchased a set of bubbles from the online store again and cut out about an 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of solid bubbles to put on the wall.

I randomly placed them on the wall in a diagonal starting from about the middle of the door when it’s open.

I also made some non-solid versions and randomly placed those among the others.

I think the bubbles may be the best part of the room. I love the way they turned out. I also love that the bubble are the first thing you can see coming around the corner and into this room.

I know that I jumped on the wall vinyl train a little late in the game and it may already be going out of style but I love the way this wall turned out. It’s more than just a quote it ended up being almost wall art.

So what do you think about wall vinyl? Is it still in style or is it making it’s way out?
