Peel and Stick Decal Style

Ready for some sticker shock? You won't believe how easy it is to add fresh, fun style to walls, furniture, and more using peel-and-stick decals.


    Everything in this slideshow

    • Mudroom Makeover

      Tackle the mudroom in a fresh, graphic way using peel, stick, and press-on typeface alphabet decals. Adhere the decal above a bench or floor, factoring in the hanging space needed for totes and coats. When you're tired of the decals, peel them off and try a new look.

    • Chic Decal Design

      A chic monogram decal above a fireplace creates an elegant focal point and solves the whole wall art issue. Decals in white pop off most colors and wood tones, giving a modern kick to a traditional room.

    • Shade Style

      Place decorative stick-on decals on the inside of a lampshade for subtle style. This peek-through look offers a simple statement that doesn't take away from the rest of the room's décor.

    • Dolled Up

      A single oversize doily adds punch to a side table. To install the doily to the table, fold it in half with a steel yardstick and cut along the crease using scissors or a utility knife. Repeat for the two resulting segments. Adhere the quarters individually to the tabletop, smoothing out air bubbles.

    • Headboard Decals

      Furniture silhouette stickers make a graphic, fool-the-eye statement in a room. And they're inexpensive, low-investment stand-ins for the real deal. This decal of an iron headboard comes in twin to king sizes and is a great fit for any room.

    • Bedside Butterflies

      Butterfly decals on this bedside lamp mimic the curvy lines of the bed and add a ring of color around the lampshade. Make sure the lampshade is made with smooth paper or plastic.

    • Decorative Entryway

      A plain door becomes a memorable entry with a collection of decals that look like a tapestry. Here, brown floral stickers offer a warm neutral color that pops against the white background.

    • Bring the Outside In

      Branch out with this peel-and-stick tree. This wall decal becomes a family tree by layering framed photos of loved ones. Organize storage boxes in this home office with rub-on letters to designate whose goods are whose.

    • Blue Birds

      Liven up your laptop with a laptop skin in a favorite motif. Pretty perched birds continue the nature-themed design in this home office. Choose a bright color, like a bold blue, to stand out against a white background.

      Stunning Stickers

      Decals are easy to apply, but be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions. Use a level and tape measure as you apply the decal to ensure straight, accurate positioning. Smooth the decal onto the wall. Use the burnishing tool to adhere it to the wall and to remove any bubbles.

      Sticky Situations

      Very slowly, peel off the plastic backing. To speed the application and avoid wrinkles, cut the decal into segments, then use low-tack painter's tape to hang sections on the wall. Bonus: Most designs peel off with ease so you can redecorate as often as you want.
