(Another) Polka Dot Wall

I’m at my polka dot limit, people.  Please don’t let me add anymore polka dots to this house.  Two walls is enough. I think.  Pretty sure.

The last time we visited the Master Bath I added a shelf in our little toilet closet.  I mentioned that I wanted to add a fun pattern in there but never decided on what I wanted.

Enter gold wall vinyl polka dots.  I thought that I wanted to use these in the office/guest bedroom upstairs but decided to use them here.

I used the same method to space them that I used when I painted the dots in my laundry room.

I cut a triangle out of scrap paper.  This time I taped the top edge of the triangle to the top edge of a small level.  This made it so easy to make sure that the dots were spaced correctly (and keep up with the triangle).

I started in the top corner with the first dot.  Make sure you don’t start to close to the wall.  I added a dot to each point of the triangle.

McKenna peeled the vinyl off the backing and I put them on the wall.  The whole thing took less than 30 minutes.  She also provided a lot of the photography as well.

I was pretty lucky with the spacing.  The only one that conflicted with something already on the wall was this one under the shelf.  I just wrapped the vinyl right around the wood.  You could also cut the vinyl to fit your space.

And here is the finished product!

I certainly could not have done it as quickly without the help of my little McKenna.  Having an extra set of hands made the process so much faster!  And she loves this kind of stuff.

And a bigger picture of the bathroom.  I have to admit those polka dots are pretty bold.  Chad had no qualms at all about the pink polka dots in the laundry room but he was a little unsure about these.

But I love them!  And if it gets to the point that I don’t love them anymore, they will peel right off without any sanding or wallpaper removal or paint.  That’s my kind of project!
