[music playing] Looking to make a room
more playful and bold? Try polka-dots. They give rooms a sense of
organization while making them lively. It’s easy to create
your own unique design. All it takes is a little
imagination. In this video, we’ll show you
how to paint polka-dots on a wall Step 1: Preparation. Think about the design you’d
like to create on your walls. How many colors do you want to use? How many dots? Will the dots be large or small? Once you’ve determined your design, gather the right tools
for your project at your neighborhood
Sherwin Williams store. Choose your paint colors. One color is the basecoat and
the others are coordinating colors which create the polka dot pattern. Make sure you have
the following supplies: A compass or round objects
to create the dots, pen knife, one or two inch
Low-Tack Safe-Release tape, a nine inch roller frame and cover, small brush, roller pan with liner, tape measure and a pencil. You’ll also need
a pre-made circle stencil or blank stencil sheets
to make your dots. A variety of stencils are available
at local craft stores or online. Step 2: Paint the basecoat. You can use your existing
wall color as the basecoat or apply a new color. If you apply a new color,
let it dry for at least four hours, or overnight for best results. Step 3: Make stencils for the dots. Use a compass to trace
circles on the stencil sheets. If you don’t have a compass,
simply use a round object like a dinner plate. Carefully cut the circles out
using a sharp pen knife If you want a variety of dot sizes, create a pattern for each
circle size and cut them out. Step 4: Design your
dot pattern on the wall. Determine where
you want the dots on the wall and mark the center of each
dot with a light pencil mark or piece of tape. Then attach
each dot stencil to the wall using Los Tack Safe-Release tape. The last step is to paint the dots. Using a small paintbrush, work from the outer edge
of the circle towards the center to avoid paint seeping
under the stencil. Then carefully remove the stencil. Do this for all the dots. You may need to apply a second coat depending on the look
you want to achieve. Creating original art on your walls
is easy with Sherwin-Williams. Whether you go large or small, polka dots add
a vibrant feel to any room. For more information about
