Since I can remember, Ollie has loved all sea creatures & whales in particular, are his favorite. He practically knows all the whale names & their sounds! Over the past few years, we have collected sea creature books, whale pictures, sea creature stuffed animals & sea creature toys.
We live in an apartment rental & I am constantly trying to think of creative ways to make Ollie's room more personal that doesn't require paint. I've scoured Pinterest & Instagram, always trying to think of new ideas. One day, I had a friend tag me on Urban Walls Instagram & it was a post about their whale decals & I knew right away that Oliver would LOVE them! I really didn't know a lot about wall decals & was hesitant about them ruining the walls & since we live in a rental, I didn't want to chance it. After reading up on their website & hearing what others had to say, I found out that they peel off really easily & will not tear off the paint!
I reached out to Urban Walls & they were so sweet to send me the whale decals & also a fun "Let it snow" decal (perfect for Christmas). When they arrived, I sent Matt & Ollie off to the library & I started to get to work & put them on his bedroom walls. They actually were a lot easier to put on than I thought & I literally just used my hands to smooth them on & they didn't get any bubbles underneath. When Ollie & Matt came home, I took a little recording of his reaction the first time he saw them & it was the sweetest thing ever! He was so excited & right away started naming the whales. He loves them A LOT & they definitely added that personal touch that his white walls needed so much!
