Here are some of my favorite decals from their website:

First, I want to start off with my Dali Decal Review:
From the very beginning Dali Decals was awesome to work with.  I had searched everywhere (seriously everywhere) for something that fit with the Bailey and Beach theme I was going for.  I didn't think it would be so hard finding a decal of a cute chocolate lab or a little boy playing in the sand.  Fortunately during one of many google searches I found the Dali Decal website and gave them a call.  Within a few minutes, I knew who to contact and about how much my decal would cost.

You can do a regular order, choose what you want pay and in a few days it is at your doorstep (anything over $50 is free shipping too) or a custom order (what I did).  The whole process is really easy.  With a custom order you just have to be a bit creative, figure out what you want, tell them the dimensions, colors, fonts etc. and then within a few hours (they have up to 24, but it never took that long) they send you back a sample and you go from there.  I made a few simple changes to my original sample but for the most part Karen, the woman I worked with was right on my vision for what I wanted in the nursery.

Once I placed my order it took about a week to have made and then a few days to get to my doorstep (maybe 10 days start to finish).  The detail and quality of the decal is awesome.  Hanging the decal did not cause any marital dissatisfaction which is HUGE.  I mean definitly no less than 20 stars from me since our marriage survives best when hiring a handy man to hang things like curtains (more on that later).  Within about 20 minutes Paul had the decal hung above the crib.  I can't comment on removing it, but that doesn't seem like it would be hard at all.

Steps for installation include:
  • Read directions (they come in the shipping box) or you can go to the dali decal webiste, or their installation videos on you tube
  • If you have a large decal like mine it comes in one sheet that you have to cut out the pieces from.
  • I cut out the boy, the puppy, the name and the starfish
  • Using painters tape, put the decal up on the wall and figure out where you want it, if it is level etc.
  • The thin piece of paper faces you, the hard piece against the wall. 
    • You start by peeling back the thin piece cutting off the hard piece in sections
    • Then press the thin piece to the wall which applies the decal to the wall
  • Take out any air bubbles and then go to the next section and repeat.
  • Step back and enjoy!   
So, I hope everyone found the review helpful and goes to take a peek at their awesome website to see what they want to get when they win!  Good Luck and thanks for participating.

I'm glad Samuel's decal turned out so well! I would put a decal on the wall with the future crib. I love the Dali Decal branch with birds, and I really like the fact that you can customize the colors (among other things).
