How to create a polka dot wall

I've recently been preparing the nursery ready for the little one and thought it would be a great opportunity to try something I've been wanting to try for a while.

I've been loving the polka dot wall trend and thought behind the cot would be the perfect place to try it.

I didn't fancy spending hours drawing out the circles and painting so I found these amazing stickers from Muse Signs at Etsy UK

They came on seperate pages and were 3 inches wide.
Really easy to remove and to place on the wall.

I got a bit sticker crazy and just started placing them all over the wall. I ended up having to reposition them and as the paint was relatively new, some of the paint came up. Ordinarily if the paints been on for a while I don't think the stickers should lift it up.

After a bit of repainting and positioning I was quite happy with them and wondering where else I could do a polka dot wall!

If I were to do it again I would definitely pencil where I wanted to place them to avoid having to move them.

Heres the end product...

There's some great inspiration across the web for positioning and colour ideas. There are some amazing coloured stickers that would suit lots of different areas in your home.

The stickers are a reasonable price and quick to put up, a great little project.

Here's some of my favourites...

Perfect for behind the desk and I love the multicoloured stickers.

A great use of the gold again.

I love the placement of these stickers in the hallway, lovely!
