Gold Polka Dot Walls

Eeek! I am so excited about this and couldn't wait another minute to show you the walls in my office/play/craft/everything room.

Have I told you about this room yet? Well, it started off as the "office" aka the room where everything goes to die. It was bad. Really bad and in need of some much needed organization. I've still got lots of work to do and decorating to tackle but take a look at my pretty new walls! Holy cow, do these make me happy!!

Gold Polka Dot Walls

It's amazing what a can of paint and some shiny decals can do to a room. Para Paints so generously provided the paint for the room and after days (weeks) of contemplating a white paint colour I finally decided on 'Coconut Sugar'. It's a beautiful, creamy but not yellow-y white that is so soft and yummy. Yes, yummy.

I was really worried about picking a white paint - too harsh, too warm, too cool... but I am thrilled with how this turned out. It's a perfect compliment to the gold polka dot decals from Urban Walls. I basically decided to redecorate this room just so I could use these decals. Love them (thank you, Danielle!)

Huge props to my husband who planned out the grid for these dots... that's a whole lot of math going on right there and left to my own devices things would have been looking slightly more random (ok, a lot more random). Just one of the many reasons I married this guy ;)

Hopefully I'll have some more room updates for you soon, me and gold spray paint have become very well acquainted lately. Check out my instagram for some sneak peaks!

  12. i love it! we're re-doing my 2 year olds room and I'm debating between decals (gold polka dot would be truly perfect) and trying to hand paint something fun.

    1. Something hand painted would be beautiful, Shabana. These were so easy to install too if you decide not to paint. I'm so happy with how they look on the wall too, they almost look painted.
