A fun playroom needs fun art, don't you think? When we started to transform the basement into Ish's ultimate playroom I started Google-searching wall decal ideas. Then I discovered Dezign With a Z from a fellow blogger's review. I was impressed with their selection and was intrigued by great reviews I read online.
The lovely folks at Dezign With a Z offered to send me a set of decals to review for Ish's playroom - baseballs and basketballs, perfect for my little budding sports fan. Whenever Ish sees a baseball he says "Mets" - how cute is that?? It's like he knows being a Mets fan is his destiny. ;-)
My first thought was to have the baseballs sort of "flying" through the room on a couple of the walls but Matt and I decided that we actually liked the pattern of them the way they were on the transfer sheet, so we decided to put them on the wall "as is" and created a sort of frame-less picture of the baseballs above the new bookcase we bought. The process of putting them on the wall required patience (and a little elbow grease), so I put Matt in charge of that part!
Here's the finished product (I'm digging how it creates sort of an optical illusion on the wall):
The basketballs were hard work (you really need to be precise in placing the transfer paper), but Matt persevered. We decided to place them on the wall in the same way we did the baseballs - "as is" from the transfer paper, except we did the basketballs in an up and down pattern (as opposed to the left to right pattern of the baseballs).
I am so happy with the outcome:
I think they really add character to the room and have a fun feel to them. When Ish gets older I plan on ordering some decals for his "big boy room" - whether it's cars/trucks or sports themes, whatever he shows a preference for.
So if you're in the market for wall decals, check out Dezign With a Z - you can catch them on their website here, on Facebook here and on Twitter here. Trust me, they have whatever it is you're looking for!
