The closet that you see in the above pictures is in a room that is both a baby girl’s nursery
and a big girl’s bedroom. The room got a makeover about a year ago when the new baby (and her crib) rolled into the house. The sisters had a sweet space to call their own but as we know, stuff tends to accumulate.
Tiffany’s solution to this organizational issue was to remove the closet doors to give the room a more spacious look.
After having stenciled her son’s closet awhile back in a houndstooth pattern with exceptional results, she came up with some cute polka dot painting ideas for the nursery closet that involved using a polka-dot stencil .
The first step was to remove the shelves so that she had easy access to the plain, white walls.
The paint color that she and her big girl chose for the polka dots was Utterly Pink by Valspar. She bought two half pint samples at $3 each, filled her paint tray, grabbed her mini roller and was ready to go!
Well, almost ready..
First she sprayed adhesive on the back of the stencil and put into position using a stencil level to be certain the dots were lined up properly. THEN she was ready to paint polka dots in a big way!
To be clear, this is not a 1 hour project but how about those results? The dots are soft and girly, the perfect background for the two sisters‘ pretty dresses and necessities. It almost seems a shame to cover them up but a closet’s primary function, after all, is organization. This pretty closet is proof positive that organizational areas can be decorative as well as functional.
