My boys asked me to please redo their bathroom. “We’re too old for frogs Mom”.
Sigh…..and I guess they are. So out with the frogs and in with the “WallHogs“.
“WallHogs“…..that was the company I saw in this blog post that intrigued me! Thanks to one sweet blog follower, I was able get one ordered for myself!
The vinyl pictures comes delivered in a huge box all rolled up. It looked easy enough, but I wish they would let me alter their directions a little.
They need to tell you to put the vinyl on the wall with tape and mark with chalk the corners FIRST.
THEN…..take off the backing.
Measure twice and adhere once cuz‘ if it’s crooked at all, you will stretch the vinyl pulling it back off the wall.
They should also tell you to sand your wall first or run a metal blade over the wall. Otherwise if you have any “peaks” on your paint wall, it will poke at the vinyl and end up looking like a pimple on your son’s face. I’m just sayin‘….
Also, re-reading the directions after it’s already up doesn’t help much.
But help from the love of my life sure does.
My friend Shauna told me statistics show kids who see pictures of themselves in their homes excel more and feel better about themselves than kids who do not..
At this rate, my boys should be running the country or getting Nobel Peace Prizes in a few years.
(Sidenote: I was not compensated in any way for this post.)

That is too funny!!! The picture looks really great!
Or at the very least super successful bloggers like their mother! That turned out wonderfully!
haha, I wonder if that is really true, about seeing pics of your self growing up? I hope so… seems an easy fun way to help your kids out!!
You are doing a tremendous job with that! 😀
Plus, you should get paid to write people directions.
Are you seriously posting on your birthday?!?!?! Although I get completely giddy when I see you have a new post I did not want to see one today! You need to be pampered today!
The bathroom looks awesome! I can’t wait to see it in person! 😉
First of all, Happy Freakin’ Birthday!
I’m so hoping that is true because I have a HUGE picture wall in my dining area that is 90% my daughter’s pics.
Love it, it looks great!
oh my gosh, I LOVE it!! That is the coolest thing, thanks for sharing!
Happy Birthday….Feliz Cumpleanos, Jennifer.
Love the WallHogs transfer… your guys are seriously gorgeous. I would have done that in a heartbeat for my son (who is now much older).
P.S. Coveting your top.
It turned out awesome!
LOL! Your ending comment cracked me up!
I do vinyl install for a living (on vehicles) so another good tip is to wet the adhesive with one drop of dishsoap and water mixed. This allows the decal to side around should you mess up and reduces bubble potential. The water mixture once dry, will allow the adhesive to take over. I use a pro application fluid myself but used this soap and water mix for many years before I bought the right stuff.
Oh. And leave the decal unrolled and allow it to flatten over time prior to install helps too. 🙂
You did a fab job! Cute idea!
That is adorable! I wonder where I could do that?
That is SO awesome because of the massive size. It looks amazing.
I love photos of my kids around the house, but I’ve never seen anything like this. You did a great job and I think I’m going to look into this.
I love that photo of them! Gonna have to check out that site – stick myself on my wall lol!
