Polka Dot Washer & Dryer

I have been slowly (very slowly!) working on a laundry room makeover over the last several months. Sometimes it takes awhile! ha! (Scroll down to see the before & after!) My most recent addition to this makeover are my adorable polka dot washer & dryer. So let's get started! :)
You'll need 3 sheets of 24 inch by 12 inch black vinyl for this project. I found my vinyl at Happy Crafters.
I used my Silhouette CAMEO to cut out a bunch of polka dots. You can hop over to my blog to see how to cut & weed vinyl. Just search how to cut vinyl, and it should pop right up.
After all my vinyl was cut I started applying my vinyl dots. I started at the top & worked my way down. I matched up the vinyl pattern as best as could. It was pretty easy to do since they were polka dots. ;)
Eventually I made it all the way around! I love how they turned out. So cute!
It almost makes me want to do the laundry.....almost! ;)
Here's the BORING before......
I love the after. Can you spot all of the changes? Hop over to my blog! I made a list of all the changes I made. See if you got them all. :) Would you like to polka dot something in your house? ;)

    The washer dryer transformation was wonderful! Is there any way to do something similar if you don't have the equipment to cut out design? Thank you!

      You could buy a scrapbook whole punch and punch them out individually. It would be a pain but it could be done. You could use a ruler and mark with a dot where you would like to place them.

    This is the cutest thing I've seen..............but I don't have a Cricut or other machine to cut out the dots. Any suggestions?

      Maybe sticker dots sold in office supply stores? Thoughts?

    Hello from France ,

    Where did you find this black weight vinyl?

    At home here, it is not transparent!

    It is just a decoration in a roll, and when it is applied it often makes bubbles! lol!

    Thank you for your answer ....... Yours.

    I love the look, but am weary of putting something like a sticker on my appliances. I fear they would start to come off during regular cleaning. Our washer, dryer and refrigerator gets cleaned at least once a week due to all the use they each get.

    But - yes they look great.
