When I'm stressed and under major deadlines I always start random, totally unnecessary projects. That was the case with this laundry room closet in my home. I pass through it all day long to get to my garage workshop and one day I'd had enough. While completely organized and functional it wasn't pretty and looked cluttered to me. I despise clutter!
I'd removed the folding doors right when we moved in and decided to go ahead and remove all of the shelves and contents in the closet.We have plenty of storage options in our home so I wasn't too worried about losing some of the function in this closet.
After taking everything down I gave the space a fresh coat of paint and then broke out my wall stencil. I used All In One paint in Liquorice and the large wax brush to stipple the paint onto the wall. This is totally not what the wax brush is for but I found it worked really well and kept the paint from staying mostly in the stencil lines.
After the paint was dry I had some common board cut to the length I needed and stained with 2 different stain colors. My daughter and I used a nail gun and attached to the wall and then my husband replaced the hooks as I am not known for accurate measuring!
While the stencil is definitely not perfect I am so happy with the uncluttered, simple feel of the new space. What do you think?
