My Wonderful Walls Review and $100 GC #GIVEAWAY {

When we moved from Maryland to Tennessee a few months back, we really had no intention of buying a house. Our wait time for a place on base was about 6-9 months so we decided we'd rent a home off-base. The search led us to nice homes that were for rent, but well above our budget. Since the turn-around here is so large, the cost of rent for *nice* homes was high. We then entertained the idea of buying a home. My husband crunched the numbers (one of the things he does really well) and told me it would save us about 2 thousand a month to buy. So we did.
We bought a 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath 2-story home with a large bonus room above the 2-car garage (aka the kids toy room/guest room)!
It's perfect for us, for now! It's a large corner lot, we bought a wooden privacy fence and the yard is HUGE!
The one thing that needed work though was the two bedrooms upstairs. They would have been great if we had 2 girls. One was pink with a bright rainbow on one wall, and a few fairy princesses painted on the other and the other room, which ended up being my 4 yo's room was purple with a large apple tree painted on one wall, with a flying elephant, a mother and daughter and on the other wall, about 5 painted cats all lined up in a row! Don't get me wrong, the momma that lived here before me was a great artist, but it was just WAY too girly for my two boys!
So we painted.
I've searched high and low for the pictures of the room before we painted, but I just can't find them! So I'm going to post the after pictures of my 4 yo's room!

Notice that his room is not filled with toys and books and lots of stuff. I like to keep their rooms clean, and minimal, until he is done with the napping stage. He still naps for me every day (except while in pre-school) for about 1-2 hours each day!

The lack of toys and books leaves him peaceful and not distracted by all the 'stuff' that kids have in their rooms today. This way, when he goes up to his room for 'quiet time' he is more likely to fall asleep. Which makes for a much more joyful boy in the late afternoons! This is just how it works for us!
I was thrilled when given the opportunity to review a product from My Wonderful Walls. They offer fabric wall sticker kits, full-room stencil kits, and color-adjustable canvas art for decorating kid rooms and baby nurseries. To include adorable nursery murals, wall decals, and kids wall murals!
With their vast selection, you are sure to find just what you are looking for.

For my review, I really wanted something for the boys, who will more than likely be moved into one bedroom once the new little one comes! I was really tempted to do a nursery design, but seeing that I don't know the gender of my baby (and won't until s/he is born) I decided it was a good choice to treat the boys! I was almost set on the wall sticker kits, but then I knew in my heart of hearts that we will not be living in this home long term and decided it was best to go with something that would be easy to just take off the wall and take with us to our new home (when the time comes)!
This is why I chose My Wonderful Walls canvas wall art! I was actually browsing their selection when my 4 yo caught a glimpse of the Underwater Ocean Kids Murals and he was sold! I decided that since they were going in his room, I'd let him choose! This is a great way to help kids feel a part of the decision making within the home, especially when it affects them directly! This is what he picked:
Being that I grew up on the Oregon coast and LOVE all things that have to do with the ocean, I thought it was pretty neat that he chose those prints!
So, yesterday the canvas' arrived! This is what we received:

The canvas' measure 15" x 20" and are are very well made! I love the fact that I can just take them down when we move very easily and put them up at the next home for the children to enjoy! My Wonderful Walls also offer customized canvas' with your child's name! I decided not to go that route though seeing I have two boys (right now) and thought that when my 4 yo is ready to move on to something else for his room, I can re-purpose these wonderful canvas prints to my 2 yo (or even the new baby on the way)! These pieces are so nice that you won't want to just get rid of them, but will want to hold onto them and use them for as long as you can!
The quality of the canvas' are awesome!

My Wonderful Walls has so many options for decorating your child's room or nursery it's amazing. They even have a YouTube channel to give you tips and tricks on how to use and apply their products.
If you need help with your wall stickers, or wall stencils, or even have questions about their canvas wall art, you can find your answers in their YouTube channel videos! If you still have questions, you can simply contact their awesome customer service support team, who are always willing to help!
Another really awesome thing about My Wonderful Walls canvas is that they will adjust the color on the print to match your room decor, for free! You simply send in a photo of the decor (bed spread, or wall color) in the room you are planning to hang the canvas and they will do the rest of the work for you!

My boys are thrilled with the new sea life that 'lives' in our home! They were so anxious for me to hang the prints, so I got right to it! *please note, they are still in their nap-clothes as they had just woken up from nap* :)
