Dotty for Polka Dot Nursery decor

If you’re looking for Polka Dot Bedding and Decor for your child’s room or baby nursery then you’ll be totally spoilt for choice. Take a look at the Find.com . You’ll be seeing spots before your eyes! (Sorry, weak I know)

As you can see,  Polka Dot themed bedding is very easy to find.
Now look what I found that would look fantastic to go with your poka dot room theme.

I just love these funky mobiles from the Wonderlandstudio that would look great in a polka dot nursery or child’s bedroom.

They come in all sorts of colours too.

This is what Wonderlandstudio says about her mobiles

“I love to make things for kids and so, voila! I started The Wonderland Studio.
All mobiles are made individually, by me for you! I use kid friendly, non-toxic EVA foam for my mobiles. Got an adventurous baby? These mobiles hang from the ceiling so you can adjust the height of your mobile to be way out of reach of your climbing monkey…perfect for older babies and toddlers! Custom orders are welcome. I can match pretty much any decor…just convo me for details.”

Ok, lets look at How to Paint Polka Dots on the wall.

Again, it’s really not hard to find polka dot wall art when you search on Polka Dot stickers. There is no end of choice. Polka dot wall stickers can be simply stuck on the wall. Very easy.

Here’s some I found from  Create-a-Mural.com

Theres lots more colours to choose from. Click on the image below to see the range.

How to paint Polka Dots on the wall

polka-dot-room

If you don’t want to go down the polka dot sticker route, then consider painting dots on your walls.

You will need

  • A selection of Plates, cups anything round you can draw around.
  • A light coloured pencil or chalk
  • Acrylic paints of your choice. Tester pots are good value.

How to do it.

  1. Choose your paint colours to suit your bedding.
  2. Take your biggest plate and press it against the wall drawing around it. Repeat in intervals over the wall.
  3. Take your next biggest plate and do the same thing inbetween the first sets of circles. You can overlap dots if you wish.
  4. Keep doing the same thing with your smaller plates until you have  created a pleasing dotty arrangement. You can have them as close together or as far apart as you wish.
  5. Next take your first paint colour and paint in some of the dots evenly across the wall. Use a small paint brush for the edges and fill in with a larger flat brush.
    Don’t buy really cheap brushes, you’ll only end up with hairs sticking to the paint as the brush ‘sheds’ it’s bristles. Don’t get too worried if you wobble a bit, when all the dots are finished you won’t notice the odd wobble.
  6. Do the same with your other colours until all the dots are painted.
  7. If you overlap dots, paint the overlap area in a different colour
  8. I would suggest to stick to 3 colours or tones of a colour unless you want a really colourful poka dot design.

There you have it.
A polka dot room theme. Really easy and very effective and cheerful.

    I love these dot ideas – i looked at the designs from create a mural but found these polka dots wall stickers on DecoSticks. I think the polka dot mobile idea works really well too

    Great information. I see you used the product room photo for our transfer dots which are much easier than trying to paint individual perfect circles yet still looks and feels like you did paint them. You can see more of those at http://www.InstantMurals.com

    polka dots are definitely a cute idea for baby bedding, as are houndstooth and plaid. i particularly like the fresh, modern, light green houndstooth pattern by serna & lily found at heaven’s gate home and garden, called “rory” (http://store.heavensgatehomeandgarden.com/rory.html). their plaid pattern is called “rex” and is quite handsome.

    they are also offering a $100 e-gift certificate w/ the purchase of any 3-piece baby/nursery bedding set — just in time for the holidays! :)

    [...] The style is modern but would fit in any style children’s room or baby nursery. I think they’d look great in a polka dot themed room too. [...]

    Hi,
    We love your site. We really liked the picture purple/Pink wall with polka dots. We love to copy the same colors and dots for my daughter’s room. We got lot of samples to match for wall color, none of them matching good as seen in the picture. We want her room to be bright with more light. Can you please tell us what color did you use for this wall? This will be great helpful for us. Thank you so much. my email address :roselinesa@yahoo.com

    I really like to the look of polka dot wall stickers for any room. I have seen them used in nurseries, living rooms, and even restrooms. Using wall stickers in general is a great way to add a little bit of you to any room. I looked at create-a-murals dots, and found them a tad more expensive than other sites. Check out the polka dot wall stickers at polkadotwallstickers.com…
