I'll be the first to admit it--I'm not the world's greatest decorator. In fact, I'm pretty far from. That's why I absolutely LOVE vinyl! It's great! The smallest touches can really transform a room! I recenlty came across the VinylizeIt website and Etsy Store and love all of the options they have! From small pieces to big-- they have a huge selection of vinyl decor which I love!
I was lucky enough to get to pick out a few of their vinyl products to help me decorate my home. I was really excited because I chose a few pieces/sayings that I've really wanted. I also wanted to spice things up this time and try a few different ways in which you can use vinyl. For my first project was a sign for my laundry room. I absolutely love the saying "The Laundry Room: Loads of Fun!" (Too many loads if you ask any mom--haha) Since our laundry room isn't really decorated and I wasn't quite sure where to put the vinyl, I decided to paint a sign and then place the vinyl on top so that if I want to change the position of it in the future, that I can. It turned out pretty good and is standing pretty good on it's own in the laundry room right now.
The next thing I tried was putting the Custom MonogramVinyl Letter "W" I got form VinylizeIt on a plain white canvas. I found the canvas on sale at a craft store and thought- just like the laundry room sign, it would be great to make the vinyl into art which can be moved around if I wanted (instead of stuck on the wall). I thought it would be super easy to do, but it turns out vinyl doesn't really stick to canvas really well. Oops! Luckily, I read that you can use Modge Podge to coat the canvas and get it smooth enough to stick on. After the new plan of attack, it came together and I was able to hang up my Monogram Vinyl art--yay!
My favorite thing I got from VinylizeIt was a Monogram Vinyl with Established Year and Last Name Overlay that I got. All I had to do was go to Home Depot, buy a tile for 69cents, put the two vinyl pieces on it, and it turned out to be such a beautiful piece of decor! This one has been getting lots of compliments and my in-laws already have requested one for Christmas.
So, even though I still love using vinyl to decorate our walls, I've now found a whole new way to use vinyl for decorating wood, canvas, tiles, glass, and more! I highly suggest you all take a look at the vinyl on VinylizeIt's website and Etsy shop and come up with ways to decorate your own spaces!
