*A pencil to mark out where you want to put the dots.
I had Simon helping me (well doing it all really)
and he measured the wall and calculated the spacing between the dots. We went with a 30cm gap.
We put a tiny mark in lead pencil on the wall to show where the dots had to go. The spacing stayed the same down the wall and every second row was in the middle of the dots above.
To place the dots on the wall you need to remove the backing, keeping the dot attached to the contact paper. Place the polka dot on the correct spot and smooth it down. I found using your fingers to smooth the dot down was easier that using the little tool they give you. You then peel the contact away.
I am really happy with them. The photos can't capture how stunning they are.
I'm happy Simon took the lead with them too. I don't think I would have taken as much care on my own. All up it took about 2 hours.
