I recently made my first Etsy purchases for two fabric wall decals. After scouring local kids stores (all of them) and looking at many online options, I finally found the combination of whimsy and realism in the fabulous decals of Janette Design on Etsy. Her shop was amazing and it was honestly difficult to choose just one decal per child!
After finding some cute airplane finials for Damien’s room, I decided on an airplane theme for his room. I never themed Aiden’s room and now find it too “baby”, so I wanted a theme Damien would grow into. The red plane seemed to “pop” the most, so I went with that one – I loved the personalized banner aspect as well. The plane takes up a large amount of room on his wall and really looks stunning – I only wish I had a coloured wall so you could see the clouds too!
The decision for Aiden’s room was harder. I knew it had to be a train theme, but I liked many of the options. I also couldn’t decide on size. Like in Damien’s room, I wanted a decal that was about the width of his bed. I liked the perspective of this one, but wanted a more old-fashioned train with a variety of cars. There were many trains in this particular shop, but any trains that were tall would have taken up most of his wall (since they have multiple cars). Anyway, I ended up choosing the red and blue train and it’s super cute. Since Aiden already has wooden letters for his name, I wasn’t worried about him feeling left out when it came to not having a personalized decal.
The decals were relatively easy to install – they repositioned easily and can easily be moved in the future. The only challenges were the size of Damien’s decal and the need to make Aiden’s decal level.
