Lounge Room Wall

You may remember the wall in my lounge room above the big (hard to make look pretty) TV. It started out looking like this.....

Then it looked like this for a while

Then I spent some birthday money and bought some decals from Leen the Graphics Queen and the wall looked like this....

I felt that it wasn't quite balanced and I added some more decals that I had left from another project.

But after seeing all of the great stuff around on everyone else's blogs, combined with the fact that the decals I added in the picture above didn't seem to like sticking to the wall, I found these cute bird cage decals and thought I would try them.
What do you think?
They were very tricky to get on the wall straight but my WH helped me.
I like them.
On another note I realised that when I looked at the number of posts I was up to it included all of the drafts that never got published (back in the day when I didn't realise that you could retrieve your posts after they disappeared when you were halfway through them... aarghh.... very frustrating!)
Anyway, my 100th post is not just around the corner ( about 10 posts away) but never mind.......,
I have decided to have a giveaway and so I will have a giveaway.
Check back on Monday for all of the details!


  1. I love what you have done with the wall...and the quote is one of my favorite. Looks great!

  2. Oooh I really like the birds and bird cages. I'm on a bird kick lately....they look really cute though :) (And I thought your TV was accessorized beautifully even before the decals - especially with the calla lilies!)

  3. oohhh. i just love those bird decals...but i think birds are just great in every design..!!

  4. Nellie, I love it!!! As you know, I really liked the flowers, but the birdcages give a much nicer balance to the overall wall - they look gorgeous, you must be so happy with it!! ENJOY ~ Tina x

  5. I love those decals. Not sure if you saw on my blog a few posts ago but the girls both have them. they are so easy and really make a great space. Good work. Mel xxx

  7. It looks fantastic Nellie - love the bird cages and especially love the little birds on the writing. Looking forward to your giveaway! Hope you have a lovely end to the week x

  8. Hi Nellie, found your blog through my friend Kerri at Driftwood Interiors. I love the bird cages..I've just bought a chandelier decal that I will be putting up in my bedroom if I ever get Part 2 of the redo finished! I'll enjoy watching your house progress. Looks like you've done a great job so far!

    You did such an amazing job! It looks absolutely beautiful, and that is the most beautiful saying. It strengthens my faith even more! Congratulations on your 100 posts. I can't wait to join your giveaway.

  12. I am a big fan of the wall words and graphics... I think it's a wonderful way to add an important message to your home and decorate at the same time! From: Your new blog follower!

  13. I love the birdhouses, and I especially like that you perched a few birdies on the words to tie everything together.

    And I love that you replaced the light fixture!

  14. They look so good, cheers Katherine

  20. I'm returning your visit to my place. I love the birdcages and that whole wall!

  21. They look great! I've been picking up images of bird cages all week for a post, and I'm sure one I have is that same decal. I really love it! And they are very straight!
