Kaleigh’s Room: The Mystery Spots Revealed

Not too long ago I showed you this photo of the latest project in Kaleigh’s room.

And then nicely left you in a bit of a cliff hanger with it. Well today is the reveal!

Here’s the sheet of decals we started with from Danielle at Urban Walls.

Some of you guessed the green spots were going to be butterflies, and others suggested flowers might be the mystery feature… and now you can see they were for the birds!

At first we were so nervous. We didn’t want to tear the vinyl, and weren’t sure what to expect from it. Would it play nice, or be tough to get along with?

Kaleigh braved the first decal… with some super concentration.

Almost there…



That wasn’t so bad.

Except, these birds looked a little like a flying turkey :-O Huh?

And then we looked closer and realized some of the vinyl wasn’t actually meant to be there.

That’s more like it! Pretty, aren’t they?

From here we committed to the end point and the mid-point with the birds Kaleigh especially liked.

Notice the middle guy, and how he’s kind of going ‘eeek’? Kaleigh wanted it to look like he was putting on the brakes before he flew into the mirror!

The rest of the decals went up in a few different sessions…

Between school and snowboarding commitments 😉

And at last the flock was complete.

Up, up, and away!

Here’s one more look back at the ‘before’ where we started…

And the ‘after’.

And that’s a wrap!

If you haven’t used wall decals before, we definitely recommend that you give them a try. We found them easy to work with, and the sky is the limit for what you can do! Oh, and did you know that Urban Walls can create custom decals? Thank you again Danielle, for helping us give this wall a little more life.

Kaleigh’s Room… More Changes

I know by now you’ve seen Kaleigh’s room evolve post (as in article) after post after post, and then a post or two more… but that’s because we’re focusing on her room the most!

So this is the wall we’re working on now.

Once the mirror was hung up we knew there would be more wall space to cover, but the wall application Kaleigh wanted was engineered as a Christmas surprise for her. So that’s why it’s not finished just yet.

And my friend Danielle Hardy from Urban Walls just happened to be in on the surprise. Danielle helped me to engineer the surprise, and she turned this experience into a Christmas gift come early, well early for me. Kaleigh had to wait until Christmas! Did I mention the customer service from Urban Walls is gold-star rated? Thank you so much Danielle 🙂

Do these tools give you any clue to what we’re up to? Okay, some of them are a little overkill, but we wanted to be prepared! And not long into the project we were down to using just the scissors, the tape, and a clean cloth.

If I showed you this photo, would you be able to guess what we’re doing?

Well, that’s it for now! I’m going to leave you guessing until we’re finished, and then I’ll show you the reveal 🙂

But until then, here’s a recap of the decorating journey of Kaleigh’s space…
