Which Chandelier Decal Would You Prefer?


Last week I posted about the vinyl decal I had won from Laura at Décor to Adore’s Friday Freebie giveaway. Well, artist, Paul David Wilson of Wilson Graphics is graciously allowing me to have a giveaway of a Chandalier Wall Decal. What’s more, you have a choice of the wall graphic in black or in white.



Paul Wilson started making wall graphics in 2006 part-time. During the day he worked as a publication designer and in the evenings and weekends he created designs for home decor and advertising. In 2007, after receiving a promotion at his job he made the decision to take the plunge and go full-time with his business.
"While the stability of a paycheck was nice, the satisfaction from my job just wasn't there. When I was promoted I was no longer doing day to day design work but was overseeing designers, budgets and sitting through meetings that were endless. I lasted nine months and decided I had to get back to full time design."
Since going full time Paul has increased the number of designs he offers in his Etsy shop (www.wilsongraphics.etsy.com) to over 170 and has a couple hundred rough ideas in the works. His work has been featured in Romantic Country and mentioned in Mary Jane's Farm.
"If I had one bit of advice to offer to creative, crafty people it's do something with your talent, find a way to make a living with it and it will be more than just a job and you'll have both an income and the satisfaction of doing what you love."

The decals are easily applied and many can be repositioned. Several are also available in a wide variety of colors. Here are some examples.

The Poppy Fields design will work well just above baseboards and trim:

The silhouetted Virtue Series is quite charming as they urge kindness and other good manners.

You may also choose from Vintage Odd Canvas Prints such as “Elizabeth Was Such a Wall Flower”


The "I Can Fly Woman" expresses the freedom to be ourselves with exhuberance.



Nature themes – butterflies, birds, insects and other images such as sea shells
*By the Sea Shore set of Shell and Starfish decal

The Porthole series is very realistic and comes in several views.

The "Cherry Blossom and Dove" decal provides a since of lovliness.







The "Plane Pulling Name Banner" will be customized with Your Child's Name

These four decals (3 Clouds and 1 Hot Air Balloon) will cover about 27” wide x 21.5” tall

I like the BOOM cartoon graphic, the Swirly tree, and of course the bunnies. The picket fence was cool too.

He had a lot of really cool items!

Thank you for visiting my blog and telling me about this fabulous give-away! I love the chandelier decal....my granddaughter just got a queen size bed (no headboard) and this would look great over her bed in black. Her room is painted in two shades of pink stripes (like a Victoria Secret bag) with and black accents. Here's hoping I win!

Oooo, thank you so much for linking me to your post on this wonderful giveaway! Those chandelier decals are absolutely magnificent, I love the idea of having one of those on a big piece of luan painted with chalkboard paint, the decal at the top, and a menu for an alfresco dinner written below. Beautifully fantastic for an outdoor party, like the one we had at the end of the year last year - I happen to have a big sheet of luan hanging around too! Hint, hint! LOL! I think the cherry blossom and dove decal is as equally fabulous. Well - all of the decals really = could be perfect in a myriad of rooms! Thanks again for such a lovely giveaway - here's hoping! :)

The cherry blossom and bird or the chandelier- either one would be the absolute cherry on the top in my 2 year old's soon to be madeover big girl room! He has some great stuff! I love that I can get those without blowing the budget paying for someone to come and paint something!
