I spend a good chunk of my at-home time in my studio. I love that space so much—between the full wall of books, the drawers full of crafting supplies and the giant white table where my friends and I sit on my very favorite stools in the entire world and dream and create. When I decided to paint that room bright white I chose that color with the full knowledge that there’d be so much art and color going on that the space would never seem bland at all.
I had always fully intended, however to come back in and add a fun pop of color to the ceiling. While I love the idea of a sky-blue ceiling over my head while I’m crafting away, the thought of removing all the furniture and covering the floor with a drop cloth and taping off all the edges and removing the light fixture made me tired just thinking about it. I was looking up some ideas on Pinterest the other day and found this tutorial from Lauren Conrad that I had been holding on to for an occasion just like this one. Rather than do a gold polka dot wall, however, I decided to do a gold polka dot ceiling.
I ordered this gold contact paper from Amazon and decided to use a friend’s Cricut machine to cut my circles out.
After I cut a few I did a test run and stuck 3 on the ceiling to see how they did. I waited a week and was able to easily peel one off with no damage to the ceiling. I didn’t do a pattern, but just used my eyes to space things out somewhat evenly across the ceiling. This was a pretty easy project that would be even easier if you just ordered the dots precut, like from here.
I ended up doing a variety of sizes, just for fun. 🙂
I love the touch of luxe they add to this room—just the right amount of gold. Isn’t it fun how it plays off the light as well?
Gold for days. <3
What do you guys think? Would you consider removable decals…I’m kind of digging them! This would be a great solution for a renter as well whether you wanted to create a wall or a ceiling. You could even do it in a different color, I won’t be too upset. 🙂
