Polka Dot Tween bedroom by Ucreate!

Welcome to Project Polka Dot!  Today we are kicking off the series with one of my FAVORITE bloggers, Kari of UCreate

Hello Polka Dot Chair readers!  I’m Kari from Ucreate and I’m thrilled to be here.

I have a thing for polka dots…big time! So I couldn’t say no to Melissa’s fun polka dot series and I think she is fantastic!

I wanted to redo my 10-yr old daughter’s room and we decided to go with a…

Vinyl Polkadot Wall by Ucreate

…polka dot wall!

We were actually inspired by this photo.

I placed the polka dots in a random pattern and used vinyl dots so they could easily be removed! We used the Silhouette machine and premium white vinyl with a 5 inch circumference for each dot. So simple!

I’m in the process of making white ruffle curtains, thus the bare windows!

I can’t believe how much the polka dots add to her room! We chose to do one wall and the rest a light green color so the polka dots didn’t overwhelm the space.

I also snagged a silver chandelier from IKEA and used this tutorial to spice it up.

This adds such a “girly” touch to her bedroom!

I have to show you this duvet I made using this fun tutorial.

I decided to use bright pink sheets instead of white for a pop of color! Oh, and see those li’l pillowcases? My daughter made those in her sewing class all by herself…she loves to sew and she’s great at it!

More polka dot love? I had to have these white polka dot sheers for her canopy bed {purchased at Walmart}.

She really wanted a corkboard so we used this frame I had in the basement. We painted it bright pink, glued some cork on the wooden insert, and she’s ready to pin away!
