Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
I had some pink and brown themed polka dots on my textured walls. They worked well. Had to make sure I rubbed them onto the wall real well, but it wasn't that much work. They were a breeze to take down as well and left no damage to the walls (we rented, so this was a major bonus!).
Reusable is iffy. If you get a quality vinyl. My kids took them down eventually and I was able to put them back up until they lost interest and started coloring on them instead (*sigh*) When we moved I didn't take them with us, though, just tossed them.
horsevaulter:I dont have experience with using them but I just wanted to say that the one you picked out is super cute! I dont think its too busy at all for a nursery!
Granted, DH did most of the work to put our decal up, because it involved standing on a ladder, but it didn't seem too ridiculous, just required a lot of patience (something DH has a lot more of these days than me). Ours is also a tree with birds, owls, and monkeys, so the intricate design does require some care and time to put up. Our walls are slightly textured and we didn't have any huge issues. DH already had a little rubber tool to use to kind of rub the decal once it was up, from a fathead that he bought a few years ago. For a couple of weeks after we put it up, some parts of the decal would kind of curl up just a little bit at the edge, so we just used that tool to smooth down the edges and it stopped happening eventually.
FYI, I ordered mine from a seller on Etsy who said she would replace any pieces that got messed up while we were trying to put it up. We didn't end up having that happen, but it might be worth looking around if you're concerned.
I have a big Happi tree that is very similar to this one. I bought it on the roommates website. It was extremely easy to apply and comes off easily too in case you don't like it or want to change positions. I gotta say it looks BEAUTIFUL!
It makes her nursery for sure!

These are the decals we got too. Haven't put them up yet though. Glad to hear a good amount of ppl say they are easy!
We love wall decals! We have them in each of the kids room including the nursery- the nursery has classic pooh wall decals from Target and those have been up since we decorated the nursery for DS (so just over 3 years). None have fallen down and hey still look great! I have Toy Story decals in DS' room and VERY similar decals to the ones you linked in DD's big girl room- all went up very easily and havent had any problems. I don't know about reusing them since we've never taken them down.
This is the theme we have in DD's room and it is ADORABLE! We have gotten tons of compliments and I love that it is girly but not over the top. We have pale blue walls, a green shag area rug that almost looks like grass and her crib bedding is a soft green and I made a crib skirt out of pink and white polka dot fabric. Love the pink and green colors together :-)
Yup! They are a major pain! That being said, we've put up a bunch of them in the nurseryvand it looks great. Don't tackle it when you're tired, and have someone there for support because it takes patience and some of them rip easily, but the end result is fabulous! They are reusable fo the most part, but believe me, once they're on you won't want to reuse them...well, the small ones could be reused more easily, but certainly not the big ones. Good luck!
Decals generally are not too difficult to put up but it does depend on the material. There are two types of decals: printed and vinyl. Vinyl can be more difficult but it looks like the one you are using would be printed. Quality is really important though. The decals you get from major super stores don't last very long and usually have a clear lining around them that really unappealing. I suggest going to a site that specializes in wall decals. I work for www.wallsneedlove.com and we have some similar things to what you are looking for but there are lots of really good website for decals. A google search of "wall decals" would be really beneficial I think. Good luck!
If you need anything I would be happy to help you!
