Wall Decals

Posted by davidh6810 (My Page) on

Do wall decals ruin or stain the paint when removing them?
I have a few choices for my wall & want to play around with them.
I'm worried that when I will peel the decal off it will ruin the paint (my walls are PURE WHITE).
Has anyone experienced taking off decals?

RE: Wall Decals

I would hope the technology that claim they can be removed without damaging the paint hold true. I'd worry a bit about fading over time. We had some posters up for a decade or so before we moved and the color was a bit different behing the poster than the rest of the wall. Point is, you will need to repaint at somepoint!
