dollar store find: wall decals

my room at college has walls of steel. and you're not really supposed to hammer anything into the walls, not even tacks... and even if you do hammer tacks into the wall you will find that the pin part will, in fact, bend, which is fascinating.

i make do in the wall decorating department.

however, i found wall decals at the dollar store the other day. i'd always been curious about how they'd work out but never really had ample funds for them. with the dollar store i accepted they could be more or less useless, but still worth a try.

i'm not entirely sure what theme they were--historical landmarks? there's the colosseum, leaning tower of pisa, vatican, i think the white house. the others are so distorted it's really hard to tell. but i put them up and they're actually quite nice! some of them curled inwards a bit, as expected, but a little scotch tape fixed that.

sorry for the shitty picture... someday soon i'll use a real camera instead of my phone. notice that my boyfriend made the bed, so nice and cozy!
