I worked on a big project over the break - - not big like "this took forever" (cause it was super fast and easy) but big as in "the finished project is taller than my girls". I was sent vinyl from Icon Wall Stickers to use. And it's awesome:
I lost all track of time while I browsed and browsed their site - they had so so much to look over, and I loved bunches of it. I finally settled on the quote I chose because I thought it would be great in a hallway outside of the rooms of my kiddos as they grow older.
"Be Steadfast and Immovable,
Always Abounding in Good Works" Mosiah 5:15I figure that if there is a giant sign telling my kids to always do good works, that can only be for the best. Since I'm thinking long-term, I didn't want to stick it to my wall. My solution was to adhere the vinyl to a board, that way I can take it with me if we change locations or if I want it in a different part of my house, etc. I like quotes on boards because it means I'm not locked in to that one spot forever.
So, first I painted a board we had in the garage. I got a bucket of water and added a little paint because I was going for a "white washed" look. Trevor loves when I paint in the garage:
When it was dry, it was time to stick down the vinyl. It's big, so it was easiest as a two-person job. With Trevor helping, I put the girls in charge of taking step-by-step photos. And I think they have a few things to learn, because here's what you get....

a blurry shot, except for the pile of junk on the couch...
this shot, also with the blurry theme.....
but there was this good one - - after peeling the backing off and sticking the vinyl to the board, rub the vinyl like crazy then slowly peel off the top transfer sheet - -
Working together - -
Thanks it!! Stand back and enjoy the awesomeness.
