Casa Beta: Wall Candy Arts Rococo Chalkboard Decal

I know I said I am over wall decals, but I can make exceptions. The peeps from Wall Candy Arts approached me about their decals, and being the sweetheart that I am I gave their selection a gander. Most of their decals seem to be for children, which I'm all for: kids should have their fun. But, I was digging the Rococo Chalkboard Decal, so I asked to try it out. Wondering what that cryptic lettering is? Find out and hear my thoughts on the product when you

It's "ART" backwards! (OK, I need to work on my handwriting.) Moving on . . . Functionally, I had no problems with the decal. It comes on a larger sheet, from which you must peel it off. Seeing as the design is a little ornate, it took a little time, to push back the smaller pieces to make the negative space. But, no more than five minutes. The decal was easy to apply to the wall. It pressed on perfectly the first time, no bubbles. It comes with a set of chalk, which is convenient. And, the chalkboard works just as an "old-fashioned" one would: you can wipe it clean with a paper towel, rag, or damp cloth. I also tried peeling off the decal and replacing it (seeing as it's reusable), and it reapplied flawlessly.

Onto the design. If you're someone who likes a modern Marie Antoinette style, you'll like this. It's a little girlish. Seeing as it's also both a chalkboard and a decal, it's pretty casual. So, I'd really only recommend using it somewhere like a kitchen, laundry room, or children's room where formality isn't key. I think it's a great alternative to painting an entire wall with chalkboard paint, which is popular these days, because really how many notes and grocery lists do you need to jot down? Wall Candy Arts also sells a simple, rectangular chalkboard decal for those of you who aren't keen on rococo.

So cute! It's definitely casual but would be a fun thing to have for notes by the front door.
