    Since I stencil the entry wall with the Please or Register to view links, my daughter was begging me to do something in her bedroom. "Because it's all white, mum, and it's not nice!" She suggested a few crazy things, I went for something simple: Polka dot. As far as there is pink involved she is happy, so I paint tree shades of pink polka dots!

    Here is the easy way to make it. Choose some nice colors and get some kitchen sponges (one for every color will be the best).

    Use a round shape to draw a circle on the sponge. The center of the tape was just perfect, but any container will work.

    Use a utility knife or scissors to give the sponge a circle shape.

    The three shades of pink I used are from Behr: Sweet Tart M160-3, Hot gossip P150-4 and Beauty Queen P120-5.

    Put some paint into disposable plates, dip the sponge in it and applies the sponge on the wall. You just need a little paint on the sponge, you can removes paint excess on the edge of the plate if needed.
    It works better if, once the sponge is on the wall, you turn it on itself a little. That way the paint is better applied.

    To make a random pattern, applies one color at the time and paint more dots on the upper part of wall. Once in awhile look at the entire wall and adds dots where it seems necessary.
