Paint a Stencil Pattern Inside Your Closet for A Fun Surprise!
Good morning, my DIY friends! Did you vow to become more organized this year or clean out your closets? We are shortly into the new year and some of those resolutions may have fallen to the wayside. Rather than dismiss your goal all together, Cutting Edge Stencils is going to share a stenciled closet makeover using our Fish School Allover pattern that is sure to inspire. Come take a look.
We’d like to introduce Amy, the creative DIYer behind the blog Always Never Done. Amy’s closet in her master bedroom was in desperate need of a makeover. Due to the size, it mainly held her husband’s clothes which were piled and hung in a disorderly fashion. Here is what it looked like:
Yikes! We can see why it needed a makeover. The first thing Amy did was to take everything out of the closet and pile it on the bed. Then she tore out the existing shelving and bar so they could reconfigure them. She spills the beans on how they reorganized the shelving in her blog post.
After the closet was painted and the new shelving was in place, Amy was ready for stenciling! She chose the Fish School Allover, a modern geometric stencil. Amy has this to say about her stencil choice, ” I thought this was just the coolest stencil. It is essentially a stencil of a school of fish but it looks really modern at the same time. Therefore it was perfect to put in hubby’s closet. (He loves fishing as much as I love estate sales and DIY projects.) We also have a beachy sort of feel in our bedroom, so it was a perfect pick.”
Amy used painter’s tape to hold the stencil in place and the Clip-on stencil level to ensure her stencil was properly aligned on the wall. She painted the fish pattern in Home Depot’s Beluga, a muted black, using a dense foam roller.
After she painting one section, she would un-tape the stencil and reposition it to stencil a new section. She did this until the pattern was complete on the closet wall.
Once the whole wall was stenciled, Amy was ready to add the clothing back into the closet.
To complete the space, she hung a mirror and added a white laundry basket. Ready to see how it all turned out?
Isn’t that such a fun pattern for her husband’s closet? Amy commented, “It looks like an aquarium!!! I love it.”
Amy now loves how the closet looks in her master bedroom.
