Anyone ever put decals on the walls before? My walls have texture to them and I was wondering how a decal would look with a textured wall.

Texture is not usually conducive to decals.
So you can sand the texture down (not all that hard, but very, very dusty/messy) or paint them on. Of course texture presents a problem with crisp lines doing that also.

my grand-daughter put snow white & the 7 dwarfs on her daughters room walls , they look really good but her walls are flat (no texture) . I do not think the decals would stick to a textured wall because they need a flat surface to adphere to ...sorry . Maybe you could use really thin straight pins & tack them to the walls . I have used striaght pins to hold small picture frames to the wall & they work really well & do not leave large holes when you take them down. Unless you know where to look you can't see the holes at all.

I guess I will have to think of something else. Was thing decals would be easy decorating. But if they dont stick, that won't work. Back to the drawing bored.

We have a huge decal tree and birds and flowers in my daughter's room. They've been up almost a year with newly painted, textured walls, and the only ones that have come off are the ones her and her brother have taken off. I will say that it depends on whether they are good quality decals or not. We bought some really thin disney ones and they came up all the time. The Circo ones from target work great and are super cute. Congrats on your baby! Hope you have the nursery of your dreams. Good luck!

I was thinking maybe I could find some stencils and paint her name and some polka dots on the wall.

Have you looked at Wallies?  They have some really cute ones for nurseries.  
Ohhh!  And this cute mural, made of nine clear sticker sheets that you cut and assemble.  It says you just stick them on the wall, and they are easily removed without damaging your wall.  


Maybe you could ask the seller of these decals on Ebay if they work on textured walls.  I'm assuming it's just the "orange peel" texture, right?  I would think they would stick fine.  Especially if you use a paint with a bit of a sheen, like a semi-gloss under the decals.

I have them on the walls in my daughters nursery! Textured walls and all! They are great and stick great!

There is a girl on Kingwood Underground who makes the decals and will even apply them for you! Her name is Jennifer and here is her info. (She did mine for a very reasonable price).

Here's a site that says their vinyl decals apply to "lightly textured walls."  They even offer to send a sample to try on your textured wall.   And there is no shipping charge for a texture wall sample order.   So you could try one out and find out if it works.   The site even has some cute polka dots for nurseries.

You could buy some sponges, cut them into circles and dip them into paint and apply to the wall.

Just another option.

@FoFa. Have u seen the cost of sponges these days. They have really gone up. the other day I couldn't find any decent size sponges for cleaning that weren't under $5 each. I use to be able to buy a 4-pack of good size sponges for $2.50
