    DIY polka dot wall decals

  • Steph Johnson

    Believe it or not, my polka dots are made with silver contact paper from a home improvement store. It’s sold in 18-inch by 6-foot rolls in the appliance section. Apparently, people use it to make it look like they have stainless steel appliances—who knew? Any color or pattern of contact paper will work. Project list: Contact paper, circle cutter, credit card, self-healing mat and something heavy to weigh down the contact paper (I used oversized candlesticks) 1. Spread the contact paper out on top of the self-healing mat and hold it in place with your heavy objects. 2. Gently smooth out any wrinkles with the credit card. 3. Set the circle cutter to your desired size and cut, cut, cut! My dots are five inches in circumference (roughly the size of a CD), and I got 39 dots per roll (give or take a few misfires). Your pile of cut dots will look like this. Don’t worry about flattening them out. Once you have enough dots, the next challenge is getting them up on the wall. If you have Type-A tendencies like me, this is a daunting task. If you don’t need the dots perfectly ordered, just slap those puppies up! It will go a lot faster. However, if you want your dots in straight lines, some prep work is in order. I used Christmas ribbon as my moveable guide; I started four inches below the ceiling and away from the adjoining wall. From there, I set the dots nine inches apart. For the next row, I measured nine inches from the bottom of the dot above, moved the ribbon for guidance and set the dots directly between the dots above. I repeated this careful pattern for each row and ended up with seven perfectly aligned rows. Good thing or I literally would have lost sleep over it! What I didn’t lose sleep over was the budget! In my case (because I already had a self-healing mat), I only needed two items: - Silver contact paper, $9.99 for each roll (I used three but ended up with twice the dots I actually needed) $29.97 - Circle cutter (I scored one with a half-off coupon at a craft store) $9.99 TOTAL = $39.96 (that’s a $180.04 savings from the pro’s quote!) Connect the dots…

Laundry Room colors - Grey, white, & yellow. Why This Room Works Grey and yellow make a fresh, unexpected palette for this room. A polka-dot pattern painted on the walls increases a sense of height, with a plush rug adding inviting texture underfoot. We hung wall art that features darker shades of gray and black to add depth and interest.
