Knock knock...

I have mixed feelings on vinyl decals. On the one hand, I love how they can add some (temporary) flair to a room without a lot of work. On the other, I think they can easily come off as kind of collegiate -- which there's nothing inherently wrong with, except that I'm well past college (and even graduate school) these days. *

As they say though, you can't really knock it until you've tried it. And so, before tossing the trend into the "not for me" pile, I thought I'd give it a go on my front door:

Kinda snazzy, eh? The decal came from TastySuite, one of many Etsy sellers who specializes in vinyl decals. I liked their offerings in particular because they had designs that weren't too sweet for my taste and/or geared towards children's rooms. The included instructions were thorough and they even sent along a decal to practice on (which now sits on my fridge). All in all, a fun (and temporary) way to add a little spice to my entryway.

What are your thoughts on the vinyl decal trend? Love it? Hate it? Have you tried it?
* - If I were still in college, I would definitely have to have TastySuite's jackelope on my wall as it was the official mascot of the political group I was actively involved in. Even now, I'm tempted to get one anyway and put it on my laptop.
