Vinyl wall quotes - just the ticket for dressing up an area but if the next owners don't really want that, they can just plug in their hairdryer and take it off. I found out they are also carried at Target and I found mine at Joann Fabrics for $19.99. I'd guess Michaels has them too.
It took me about an hour to apply it, because my wall is just a wee bit bumpy from the five gallons of joint compound. If you had a smooth wall it would likely take about ten minutes. They provide a little white 'credit card' type of thing to rub across the transfer, so you don't have to trash your Target credit card, not that I have a Target credit card, since I'm opposed to paying 21% interest on something I bought on 'sale', but you get the point.
I am T.H.R.I.L.L.E.D. with how it turned out! $19.99 at Joann's and I used the 40% coupon, so this dandy wall-dresser-upper cost me around $12.00 - I still think a 'passion for food is a passion for life' but they didn't offer that quote, yet. They do sell one that says, "All because two people fell in love" and I'm thinking it would be great in the rec room over our family photos. Then there's the one that says, "Always kiss me goodnight" - wouldn't that be great over a guest bedroom bed! The possibilities are just endless.
I think the next owners will love this, but if not, I'm willing to write a counter-offer with the hair dryer thrown in with the house!
