How To Create A Polka Dot Wall (Quickly)

How To Create A Polka Dot Wall (Quickly)

The polka dot wall was one of my favourite parts of Eleanor’s old nursery. It took me less than two hours and it had such a big impact on the room. I used these gold dot decals from Land of Nod, but I know you can also find similar ones on Etsy and they’d be easy to make with a Silhouette or a Cricut.

Eleanor’s Loft Nursery Reveal

It’s time to play catch up here and show y’all how far I got with our loft before we moved. Here’s is Eleanor’s little nursery… When I say little, I’m talking 8′ x 9′.

Update: DIY Upholstered Bed

Remember the bed I upholstered for the little man back last year? Well, when we moved, I had to take bits of it apart so we could get it through the doorways. It was an easy process – I just pulled out the staples and peeled the fabric back around the corners so that I could get to the screws (and around the middle of the foot board, because that’s where the support beam is attached). It had been working out really well, but there were a couple of things… View Post
