Painted polka dots wall DIY

How to make painted polka dots wall?

Last months were the time of renovation madness. A painted polka dots wall is a cheap and easy-to-make alternative to wallpaper. You can juggle with the colors and size of the dots to meet the expectations of even the most demanding young customers 🙂 All you need is a sponge brush and color paint. After two layers the painted polka dots wall is ready.

  • Round sponge brush – you can buy at a stationery store. I used a brush with a diameter of 40mm
  • Color paint
  • Ladder – can come in handy if you plan to paint high
  • Cardboard or foil – to protect the floor

Euphoria, doubt and acceptance

At the beginning there was euphoria that it would be enough to buy brushes and the polka dots wall would be created. Then I did a trial series and was very disappointed. Dots came out uneven and air bubbles formed. I have already started to think about other solutions, but I have made a second attempt. After applying another layer, it turned out that the dots are even, and the bubbles dry up and are hardly visible.
