Home Inspiration Week-Day 4

Hi there! Welcome to day 4 of my Home Inspiration week featuring EAD Designs! This week has flown by already and I've really enjoyed changing things up from my usual cardmaking and scrapbooking. Thanks to everyone who's been leaving sweet comments!

Ok, today I have another fabulous guest designer to start with. Liz (Liz's Paper Loft) and I are on two Design Teams together (Scrappy Mom's and EAD) and she has showcased some fabbie vinyl work in her bathroom and wanted to share with all of us how great it looks! :)
Apply vinyl..
I love the look of the wroght iron! Thanks for sharing Liz!
She used the EAD-Wroght Iron 1 for her project. :)

Ok, my project today was a BIG project and I needed the hubby's help and Natalie made an appereance too! :) In my house when you are going up stairs we have a big empty wall that I just couldn't figure out what to add to it. I didn't want to put pictures up because it's too close to the stairs and I know kids would mess with them. So after searching through the EAD store we decided on dandelions and we couldn't be happier! 

 I was a little scared at first to put these up just because it's so big and so different, but we love it now! And we have gotten so many compliments on how great it looks! 

Here's how we did it..
Before, plain wall not much goin' on..
Since our wall is so long, we used 2 different size dandelions.
Apply taller one first..
Then apply smaller dandelion..slowly peel off transfer tape.
For the petals or leaves (I'm not sure what those are called, lol..)..first we taped where we wanted them to go, I wanted them to look like they were being blowing up..this was a little more time comsuming because there were so many..but it's totally worth it! 
Our little helper :)

Natalie says "Hi guys! I love EAD vinyl!" ...hehe :)
and the finished look..stand back and admire your hard work!
The view from downstairs..
I hope you like the look...we sure do! 
For our vinyl wall we used the Blowing Dandelion the larger one is 40" and the smaller is 30".
There is actually 3 different sizes sold in the EAD store...can you guess what today's giveaway is?? 
One lucky winner will win ONE Blowing Dandelion! woot, woot! The winner can choose the preffered size..just leave a comment on this post! Easy peasy!

Thanks for joining me today, see ya bak tomorrow for the grand finale! :)

FABULOUS projects ladies.. LOVE them both.
I'm thinking Natalie needs a EAD job and the best part is she'll work for cookies;)

Oh my goodness - i LOVE this! I love blowing dandelion images and this above your stairs is just amazing! What a brilliant idea! I mean it - this is so totally cool! I wish I had a stairway like this so I could do this. i am going to check out around my house to see where else I could do it. My blank hall walls might work :) Thank you so much for the inspiration and for the chance to win of course!

Ashley Nguyen Newell said...

I love your walls with all the vinyl! So my cheaper than trying to buy art or frame things for the walls! I love it! And your little helper is SUPER CUTE! She might be the cutest little girl helper ever, keeping in mind that I have two little boys helpers. ;)

This looks wonderful! I love it! Who would have thought that dandelions ARE good for something other than making lawns turn to weeds! LOL!

I never, ever would have thought of something like this for the stairway! I know what you mean about photos and other things, they get in the way but this looks super amazing. I love it.
