Made It Monday- Polka Dots EVERYWHERE!

I have been busy crafting this week!  I've been looking forward to Monday so I can share with Tara's Monday Made It Linky...

Don't judge....You know you've been waiting too....

I have seen lots of cute wreaths around lately, so I decided I needed a cute one to go on my door!

It was super easy. I painted some wooden letters, added tiny polka dots and hot glued to a wreath. It cost less than $10 total!

Can you tell I love polka dots?
I just added some polka dots to IKEA mini brooms.  Then spray painted a clear coat on top!

Now, for my big project! 
This has been my boring stool for the past three years.  It was in the room when I moved into it. 

Boring right? So I spray painted it black.  

I'm loving all of this Chevron, so I decided to create one on the top of the stool. I used Painter's tape to create a pattern. I found a pin about creating a Chevron pattern on a lamp. You can check it out here
The Pattern isn't perfect because the stool's lip was rounded, but I did the best I could. 

 Then I painted it lime green. 

Took off the tape,  and VOILA!

Then I added some polka dots on the legs. 

I just need to add some finishing spray and I'll be all done. 

I LOVE the way it turned out. 

What have you been crafting? I can't wait to see everybody's Made Its! 

Be sure to link up with Tara!
