Stenciling a drab closet might be the best way to punch up its interior! Imagine if your guests suddenly opened the foyer closet and a sweet, cheery color and pattern greeted them? The same could be said for a personal closet -- walking into an uplifting, patterned space might just set your day perfectly. Or, completely stencil and transform a closet into an office or playroom? We've rounded-up some great ideas by a few wonderful Royal Design Studio stencil fans to help you add a little stencil style in an unexpected place!
Apartment Therapy featured Tanya Lacourse's fashionable closet make-over where she stenciled the walls with the Large Peacock Fancy Stencil in a gold metallic over a soft Tiffany blue! Tanya had a bit of a time waiting for the paint she used to dry while stenciling -- we recommend using the Royal Stencil Cremes Paints for super easy stenciling with fast drying and no smudges.
Adrienne from Freetime Frolics had a "crazy unorganized, dark and blah" closet to tackle. With our Casbah Trellis Moroccan Stencil in hand, she was inspired to do some organizing and refurbishing by adding lights, storage space and yes, a beautifully stenciled feature wall! Instead of dreading going into her closet now, Adrienne shares that she just wants sit on the floor and enjoy the beauty! Stencil Success!
Lina from Fancy Frugal Life took a look at a closet nook near her kitchen and decided to create a darling play and reading area for her kids! Isn't that such a creative idea? She add happiness and color to the space by stenciling one of the walls with the Small Endless Moorish Circles Stencil and a bright color -- what an adorable stencil project!
A fabulous customer shared their stenciled closet wall with us featuring the Modern Chevron Stencil from the Allover Modern Stencils Collection. What a lovely stencil surprise awaits beyond the door -- even the kitty wants to be nearby!
Stencil Chic! Christina from the Proper Hunt blog had a glam stenciled closet wall project featured on the Sadie + Stella blog! We love how she used the Rockin' Roses Damask from our Allover Floral Stencils Collection to add a modern flower stencil design to her daughter's closet. The whole project took her four hours and she estimates that "someone who is not 34 weeks pregnant could do it in less time". She loved it so much that she said it was better than the wallpaper she had originally envisioned! Now that's Stencil Style!
Isn't this an incredible Before & After? Stencil cutie Tam from Sew Dang Cute transformed a closet into an office for a friend and used a fresh color scheme along with our Tailfeathers Allover Stencil from our Allover Damask Stencils Collection. What a perfect solution if you have limited space -- and better yet, make it a beautiful space to spend time in!
