Setting Up My Very Own Cosy Corner [Wall Stickers]

Setting Up My Very Own Cosy Corner [Ikea]

In this blog entry, we will be blogging about how we used wall stickers to beautify the walls of my cosy corner!

The first time Baby and I saw wall stickers was when we were holidaying in Taipei, Taiwan at Raohe Night Market. It was a pity we didn't buy them because they were rather cheap as compared to the ones we bought from Johor Bahru, Malaysia. If you shop around in KSL Shopping Mall or City Square in Johor Bahru, you should be able to find some small retail shops that are selling wall stickers.

Anyways, if you're planning to beautify your walls, wall stickers can be a great alternative to painting or even sticking wallpapers. However, before you shop for suitable wall stickers for your wall, the most important thing you must do is to measure the length and height of your wall. By doing so, you will then be able to gauge the size of the wall stickers you should get.

For my cosy corner, we chose this particular design because the dimensions fitted the length and height of my wall. Not only that, I could even feature my family photos on the wall as part of the design as well. For your information, this particular design that we chose cost us around SGD$50+ and you might be able to get it at a much better price on Qoo10.

Also, before you purchase any wall stickers, check with the retailer or the seller where the wall stickers come from/are manufactured. If it is from Korea and/or Taiwan, you can safely buy it. If it is from other countries, you might want to consider your purchase carefully because certain wall stickers from certain countries are of low quality and low quality wall stickers may damage your wall.

This was how the wall of my cosy corner look like before the wall stickers were pasted.

The wall stickers will come in a roll and you will have to cut out the individual pieces bit by bit using the scissors.

After cutting out the individual pieces of the wall stickers, Baby and I pasted the wall stickers onto the wall using a masking tape so as to gauge the positions of where we should paste the wall stickers.

Knowing more or less how and where we're going to paste the wall stickers, we removed the protective film and pasted the wall stickers permanently onto the wall.

We slowly added the leaves one by one to the tree and viola!

Well, the only thing that is missing right now are the photos which I am going to put up and personally, we really like the design that we chose for the wall stickers. So, if you're wondering how you can beautify and/or decorate your wall, wall stickers might just be the thing for you.

And oh, wall stickers can be easily removed without leaving any stains on the wall or causing any damage to the paintwork on your wall. :)
