Decorating the nursery is one of the most exciting parts of expecting. It's a bonding experience for the family that's already here and the one in the oven. What will be his favorite color? Will she like birdies or duckies? Whatever you decide, you want your new baby to know that his parents have taste, style and more artistic version than a slapped on coat of paint. And if they don't they know how to fake it with a few pre-designed nursery decals that will make his nursery look professionally designed.

Once you've pinned down your artistic vision for your baby's new abode, it's time to get the nursery wall decals up. No decorations are as easy to install. You don't have to make holes or nick the paint job. All you need are a few strips of tape and a supplied squeegee. But you don't have to tell the baby just how easy it was.

The Wall

The first and most important step to installing nursery decals is to clean the walls. The adhesive on the back of nursery wall decals will stick to whatever surface they come into contact with. If that substance is dirt or dust, your nursery wall decals will be as impermanent as the dust it sticks to.

Wash the wall with a de-greasing cleaning solution like trisodium phosphate powder. Mix it with water according to the manufacturer's instructions if necessary. Moisten a non-abrasive sponge with the solution, wring it out well then rub the walls clean. Clean in horizontal rows and work from the bottom up so that you don't create streaking. Wipe the walls dry when you're done. Leave them to air dry for another hour to make sure that the walls aren't still moist.

The Decal

Start by mapping out the spot where you want the decal to go. Hold it up against the wall and have the family help decide where it goes. If you want it precisely centered or positioned measure to find the right location. When you think you've found the right spot, use a level to make sure that the design is straight. Once it's in position, secure it. Place two to three small pieces of painter's tape on the left and then the right side of the top of the decal.

Now remove the tape on the right side of the decal. Stick them on the left side to help it stay up. Peel off the paper backing from the right side of the decal to expose the clear vinyl. Stop when you get to the middle of the decal. Cut away the excess paper. Now rub the clear vinyl onto the wall with the squeegee tool. Hold the decal against the wall with one hand and push it flat against the wall with the squeegee tool. Drag the squeegee tool in smooth, long strokes. Now simply remove the paper from the left side and flatten the left side of the decal.

We told you it would be easy! In just a few minute's time, you turned your baby's nursery from ordinary to extraordinary with just a few nursery decals. Let him be impressed for at least a few years' time before you let him in on the secret.
