A couple of years ago I decided to redo the powder room in the basement.  The walls were a sort of smooth paneling.  Unbelievably fugly.  Seriously on the cheap I though I'd cover all four walls including the door in waves of circles cut from mags.  For months I vandalized any magazine and catalog I could lay my hands on.  Kept my hole punch with me at all times.  I ended up with a couple of thousand dots.  I didn't use all of them but will definitely add more with time.  I painted over the fugly and just started mod-podging dots.

           

Some of my favs


So even after a couple of years I still find new things.  It's FUN!

Yes, I know, the puns in the subject are sad..."circle"-ing the "drain" and pix "tub"by.  Potty humor  Shocked

C & C welcome!!!

I love this. The reflection of dots in the mirror is especially awesome.

I can't believe how great this looks! I did the same once with a wall and deconstructed dollar store leis. Your method is so much more beautiful, and a lot cleaner looking. And, unlike the leis' flowers, i doubt your bathroom rustles ominously every time the door opens.
