Walls Need Love (Giveaway & review)

A while back, I was fortunate enough to discover Wallsneedlove.com, a site that does wall decals and stickers. Not too much later, I was given the opportunity to review their product and I jumped on it! I had my eye on a few things, and for a while I couldn't decide what I wanted. I had a particular theme I wanted to do for Squiggle's room, but I couldn't find just what I was looking for. My husband actually fell in love with a pre-made set on their site, but if he hadn't, I was going to take advantage of their custom stickers.

I apologize in advance for the poor quality of a couple of the pictures. My camera died partway through the pictures, and I had to switch to a phone for a few while the batteries charged. (Then I grabbed the barely-charged batteries to snag the rest of the photos, so you only have a couple poor quality pictures!)

This is how the room looked to start out:





I had a gift card to spend at the website as well, so I got to get more than I thought I would have for her room. I got a flowering tree, a cartoon-y owl set, and butterflies. I really liked that I could pick any colours I wanted for the tree and the butterflies. They have a colour chart (and also a previewer so you can see how it would look on your approximate wall colour) that allows for customization of the feature. I could have made the tree trunk purple, the leaves orange, and the flowers green if I wanted!


The stickers were surprisingly easy to take off the sheets and put on the wall, though I had one heck of a time climbing up and down while super pregnant to do so! I had my mother and my husband put the tree on the wall since that came in segments that needed to be lined up, and then I decorated it with leaves and flowers.


I have extra stickers for the tree and the owl set, so I could have made a pile of leaves at the bottom of the tree if I wanted (which I considered), and extra leaves for the owl set as well. I opted to actually stick pretty close to the examples on the website since I really liked the set up, but there are still little changes you can see between my walls and the website.






Leftover stickers

I actually had the stickers up on the wall and pictures taken back in late May/early June, but I didn't have time to type up the review then... and I'm glad I didn't. Squiggle is now 3 months old and completely in love with her walls. I didn't realize that she was going to enjoy them so early, but at first it was just something different to look at. Darker colours contrasting against the light wall. I know newborns don't have the best vision! As time went on, though... I realized she was actually interacting with them. Right around 2 months old, I noticed she was smiling whenever I picked her up off the changing table... and I realized that when I did that, she was staring directly at the wide-eyed owl stickers. I moved closer to them and she smiled bigger. She likes to stare at her birds, butterflies, owls and the tree. She smiles when you move her around to different sides of the room, and smiles when she gets her diaper changed because she is surrounded by her wall decor.
