The best thing is when a wall is getting painted; one can wait for at least 2 weeks before they apply the wall decal. They will not work when the paint has just been done and it has been not dried yet.  The reason to wait for 2 weeks is to take a safer grace because sometimes even when the wall looks dry they have not fully dried yet.
