Wall Decal Giveaway with Designed Beginnings

 **This giveaway is now closed**

Decorating a room can be one of the most fun (and sometimes most frustrating!) things. Before my son was born, I knew he had to have a Steeler's-themed room because my husband is pretty much a fanatic and he would have written it into the marriage contract if he could have. The problem is, there isn't a lot of Steelers-themed baby stuff out there and I was too tired and pregnant to paint something permanent on the wall, so I ended up using thumbtacks to pin pennants all around the room and called it a day.

Fast forward almost 2 years later, and there are plenty of things I would have done differently, including getting some decals to help me out of my decorating funk. Ragan, the owner of the Etsy shop Designed Beginnings, has a great selection of children's and nursery wall decals including growth charts, monogram decals, and other super cute decorative decals. Wall decals are a great way to enhance the look of any room without the pressure of the decorations being permanent (AND you can avoid a nursery full of thumb tacked pennants like me ;) I had a great time browsing through all of the different designs - and there were too many I loved to narrow down a favorite!


I obviously need to get this Football Decal right away before Connor grows up and sees the shameful state of his nursery:








And even if you don't have any kids, you could always get your last name in vinyl
as a great addition to your living room:

Now for the fun part, I get to give one of these awesome wall decals away! Designed Beginnings is offering one of my readers a decal of their choice up to $50.

For 2 chances to win, do one (or both!) of the following:

1. Like Designed Beginnings on Facebook and leave me a comment that you did
2. Visit Designed Beginnings on Etsy and leave me a comment with which decal you'd pick if you won

Please make sure to include your email address if it's not linked to your profile.

Even if you don't win, Ragan is offering my readers a 20% discount on all items in her shop when you use the coupon code "myownroad" when you check out. This discount expires on June 5th.

The winner of the giveaway will be announced here Friday June 1st. Good luck!

  1. Wow! This is awesome! We're just about to redo my son's room. He's 2.5 and he 'inherited' the nursery my daughter had (it wasn't pink, it was green, so not as awkward as it could have been - like you preggers and chasing a toddler - decorating another nursery seemed like a lot at the time)... anywho, we want to do a safari/camping for his "big boy" room and I love wall decals! We have little flowers in my daughter's room and sea turtles in the bathroom... for his room, I'd LOVE the big giraffe silhouette (although the airplane almost makes me want to re-think my plans!)

  9. These are adorable! I would have to go with one of the personalized sports themed ones for my son's room. We just redid his room and can't hang a lot of pictures (too many studs in the walls), so this is a perfect alternative!

  13. If I won, I'd def pick the "Tree, bird and owl wall decal sticker" in one of the green colors. My 5-year old loves the color green, and this would go great in his room that he is sharing with little brother who is only 2-months. Especially, since we painted his room to look like it has green hills and blue skies. It'd be perfect!
