Polka-Dot Closet

I shared my son's stenciled closet with you a few weeks ago.  I was so excited to find that it made the Top 10 on The CSI Project.  It was among some absolutely amazing painted walls and I couldn't believe it.  

When I discovered that Cutting Edge Stencils had a new polka-dot stencil, I knew that would be my next choice.  I love polka-dots.  Really though, who doesn't?

Last summer, I made over the girls room to accomodate both new baby and big girl which I shared here, it instantly became my favorite room in the house.  It filled up quick with all their "stuff" and when we had to make room for a dollhouse, it only made sense to take the closet doors off.  It makes the room appear larger and it is pretty fun to look at all the sweet dresses hanging there in the closet.  And after seeing the finished product in my son's room, I am now a huge fan of stenciled closets.  It was the girls turn now and their closet needed some polka-dots, of course.

So I got my husband to help me this time because it was a bigger closet and there was more shelving to mess with.  I convinced him it would be a great way to spend our Saturday!  : )  

So I cleaned out all the "stuff" and had a blank white wall to work with.


My husband so kindly took down all the shelves for me.


Now it was time for the fun to begin.  I purchased 2 half pint Valspar samples.  I wanted a light and subtle pink.  My big girl and I chose the color Utterly Pink and it was just right for this project.  And at $3 a pop, this was the perfect amount of paint at the perfect price.


I poured it into my paint tray and applied it to my mini roller provided by Cutting Edge.


And this time I used spray adhesive to apply my stencil and the clip on stencil level from Cutting Edge to get my polka-dots straight.  


This project did take me awhile but when it was complete, I quickly realized it was well worth it.


I was kind of wishing I didn't have to put anything back in the closet because the polka-dots were so fun and pretty to look at.  But in the spirit of functionality and organization, everything had to be put back in its place.


The polka-dots were subtle just like I wanted.


They make the perfect backdrop for cute little dresses and fun girly things that fill up their closet.


The polka-dots even make not-so-pretty things like humidifiers look cute and fun!  : )

My big girl was thrilled with the polka-dots!



Also, I have fun news for YOU...tomorrow will be another chance to win a Cutting Edge Stencil of your choice!   

Happy Tuesday!

I'll be participating in these link parties this week!

Great idea - love how it turned out! Just the thought of removing the door is genius - my son never uses his closet because the door sticks! Thanks for sharing.

Adorable! Your sons closet a few weeks ago inspired me to try my first stenciled wall! Still working on it, but I'll let you know how it goes!

Love it! Subtle, but very pretty. I'm impressed you were brave enough to disassemble an entire closet to do it. :)
