UrbanWalls Etsy Site Review and $50 Gift Card Giveaway*CLOSED

*CLOSED--Winner posted here.*

Natalie used to think it was cute to color on the walls.

Newsflash to her: it wasn’t.

As she grew she didn’t always stop messing with the walls. To her they seemed like a blank canvas.

This was why I was thrilled when Danielle, owner of an awesome Etsy site called UrbanWalls contacted me. I checked out her page and was amazed at all the different wall decals that she had to offer. From kids decals, to beautiful designs you could have anywhere in your home, I loved every single one of them.

Isn’t this tree fantastic?



I also loved this owl one:



My husband who is super picky about things was really amazed with the airplane decal:



The plus about these decals is that you can pick your own colors if you aren’t a fan of the ones in the picture. This information is from the site: “Unlike standard high gloss signage vinyl, our product has a matte finish that gives a gorgeous painted look without bleeding or permanency. They are easy to apply, last for many years and can be easily removed but not re-used.”


We had some of the vinyl signs and let me tell you, they could be a pain to put up. I’d follow the instructions and there would be bubbles underneath. And don’t let me get started on how difficult it was to peel off.

Not so with these decals.


We ended up with this chalkboard one:



It was so incredibly easy to set up. It easily peeled from the paper and I stuck it on the wall with no problems.

Natalie was thrilled! She could color on the wall! (And yes, she's trying on her retro bathing suit. She loves it.)

All you need is regular chalk and the chalkboard is ready to go. You can write sweet messages to your kid:


And clean up is simple. I imagine you could use a regular eraser. I just used a wet paper towel and everything came right off and the fun could start again:


Natalie has also been using the chalkboard decal to practice writing her name:


Yeah. She's still on her Na kick so this will come in handy...


Want your own chalkboard decal?

Or something else?

Danielle has graciously offered a $50 gift card to her Etsy Shop to one lucky reader.

  1. The one I would want is the koala one: http://www.etsy.com/listing/60618289/vinyl-wall-sticker-decal-art-koala. We are having our first baby (after Dr's said we couldn't) and live in an apartment where painting the walls is not an option. This would be a great way to still have a nursery look on the walls :)

  20. Ok, I don't know FOR SURE because Etsy keeps kicking me out, but I like the Chalkboard and owls. That said, I don't know where I'd put THOSE. So maybe one of the older styles for the boys. I NEED THEIR ROOM DECORATED! Badly. It has dinosaurs on the walls. Justin is 13. This is unacceptable.
