Tuesday DIY: fab yet simple way to update a wall

I came across this really fab, yet relatively simple polka dot wall DIY project over at My 2nd Hand Life. Maiju found a reel of dot stickers and stuck them at random over one wall. I absolutely love the outcome how about you? What a simple yet cool way to update a space.

Could you imagine covering a wall in your home with polka dots?

I've been thinking of renovating my little girls room with heart stickers (or one of these shapes). the question is do I just place them on a white wall or should I paint the wall in a pretty colour first? Tips welcome!

This is another great DIY project for updating a wall (potato printing - who'd have thought?

  1. Hi:) The same idea is in my head from some time now - I will put dots on one wall/wardrobe; As there will be not objects infront, I am not sure I will get the effect from the picture. And I am always for white in white...have a good day!

  3. I think it depends on what colour the wall is at the moment and what colour the stickers are. I would suggest either a very pale pastel colour, or just let the stickers do the talking and leave the wall as it is!

  4. I love the idea! Actually Maiju's dots are some kind of shooting target stickers, you can find them much cheaper at local gun stores (:

  15. Sorry to be a party pooper, but how sticky are these stickers? Won't they just curl up at the edges and peel off after a few months? Or maybe that only happens in hot climates like where I live!
