We get lots of questions about where we get our vinyls for our various projects… so we’re dedicating this entire post specifically to sharing our our vinyl secrets! (Including how to get your own!)
We primarily use vinyls on various projects when we want woodgrain (or sometimes a different color of paint) to show through in the form of a design on a painted piece… like so:
For a step-by-step tutorial on how to ‘pull off’ (PUN!) this technique yourself, click here!
But you can use vinyl however you like! Whether it be a huge dandelion silhouette in your bathroom, or a cheesy love phrase on the wall behind your bed, or applying the vinyl right on your furniture to stay! …the possibilities are endless!
Our vinyl ‘dealer’ is a friend of mine… her name is Dana, and she’s AMAZING. Her Etsy shop is HERE. She is super creative, and has software with TONS of fonts, designs, etc. AND… she can package up your vinyl in a poster tube, and ship it to you anywhere in the country! No need to be in Central Iowa!
You can either email her a file or photo of exactly what you want, with dimensions and whatnot… or you can explain to her kinda what you’re thinking, and bounce ideas back and forth. She’s even been known to draw up a few samples for you to choose from, based on what was discussed!
Here are some of our vinyl projects (below). Click on each picture to be directed to that post!
And be sure to let her know we sent you! And don’t you dare forget to send us pictures when you’re done! We love seeing our readers’ projects!!
