Trading Phrases Review and Giveaway


I'm embarrassed to say that I"m not very good at decorating my home. I think that is one skill I didn't get from my mother! I try, but I am always unsure of what looks good, and how to make it look like it fits in our home! Thankfully, there are companies like Trading Phrases that have something for every style of decor out there!! Trading Phrases is a wall decal company that has all the latest and greatest designs in vinyl wall decals, graphics and lettering. I LOVE using wall decals, my mom got me hooked and I think this is a fantastic way to add style and flair to your home! Trading Phrases has so much to offer-modern sayings, heartwarming greetings, cool kids art, and you can even personalize your own wall decal!
I decided to go the custom design route with my review. I chose the "Meals and Memories are Made Here" decal with our last name in the background. I've felt our kitchen was lacking "something" and as soon as I saw this design, I knew it would be a perfect fit in my home! As soon as my decal came in the mail, I opened it up and got to work! The directions were simple and easy to follow, and Trading Phrases even includes a special tool to help get your decal on your wall as smooth as possible. First, I put up "Stevens" in a Warm Grey Color, with a little help from my husband who was my guide in telling me if it was centered. I was really impressed with just how easily it went on, I had no problems whatsoever with the application. The second layer was a darker Slate color, and it went on just as easy. I am so in love with how great it turned out!! Even my husband, who usually has no opinion in how I decorate, really liked it!



What I love about using vinyl wall art, is that you can really customize it to fit your own style. You can choose the size, color, font, wording-everything! You really can't go wrong with this kind of decorating. There is no questioning whether or not something is the right fit for you, because you can make it the right fit! Removal is just as easy as the application of your wall decal, you can just peel them off! There is no damage to your wall and it won't chip your paint! Trading Phrases is the perfect solution for a dorm room, or a rental house where you can't paint or hang pictures, but still want to decorate and make it your own! Best of all, Trading Phrases is made right here in the U.S.A! I love supporting and encouraging others to do their business right here in the U.S. :D

Some of my other favorites from Trading Phrases are:
This one would be perfect for my husbands "Man Cave" :D

Buy it: Check out Trading Phrases, there is something for every room and everyone-and if you can't find it, Customize it!!

Win it! One lucky winner will receive THIS wall decal! The We Are Family Decal is 23 x 51 and black. A beautiful addition to any home!
