Chic decals, minimal effort, stunning impact!
This is probably the easiest tutorial out there you can get to make wall decals!
Great replacement for stencils since these are no-mess easy peel plus, the customizations are endless!
This tut of course doesn't mean you have to make a jewelry niche too, headboard decals are the thing I say but I have a pretty su-weet headboard already. The best bet would be doing this under a shelf (or on the top of it). Also consider hanging a grand oval mirror over your vanity and having the decal as the frame of the mirror. Endless options I tell ya.
The time required depends upon the intricacy of your pattern but typically one hour is the middle ground.

You Will Need
Using a craft knife and the different sized scissors, cut the pattern out. A good tip is to not start out with a too complicated pattern.
Here's the two damask corners for each side of my "shelf" decal.
I then cut out a long strip and two smaller ones (for the damask corners) measuring the width of the wall/space I wanted to put my decal on. This long strip was supposed to go on top of the damask corners.
Use a ruler (or probably the leveling app on your Iphone,lol) to make sure you have the alignment right when you place the decal. Peel off and smooth it onto the surface. Since it comes off mess free, even if you have those annoying 'wrinkles' you can peel it back off and smooth it over again.
