I’ve always wanted a pretty pantry. You know the kind that doesn’t look like you really store food in there. 😂
One filled with baskets that all match and containers filled with cereal, cookies and pasta.
A pantry that’s just dreamy!
A pantry that’s
“Picture Perfect “
Well, I must have been dreaming when I had the idea to stencil this pantry. I don’t know what I was thinking 🤷🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️😂 I’m kidding y’all. (Not really 😉 ) I’m totally in love with way it turned out, but it was a lot more work to get it there than I originally planned.
Now, if I had decided to stencil this one little wall before we had these awesome weathered wood shelves installed, we’d probably be having an entirely different conversation. 😃
Once the shelves were installed it made it much harder to work in a tiny space. I did I have the stencils cut to fit between most of the shelves but there still were a lot of tight spaces they were difficult to work in.
A few tricks I learned while doing this:
1- have more than one stencil to work with. This will make it much faster no matter what size wall or floor you’re working.
2- be sure to blot the paint off of your stencil after each use.
3- Use spray adhesive to keep the stencil in place. This will prevent paint from going behind the stencil.
4- For applying the paint, A small paint roller worked better than a brush.
5- Stencil before installing shelves ( I had to throw that one in there! 😏)
I considered wallpaper but, I knew I wanted this design.
It was more a lot expensive to order it in a wallpaper so I decided just to go for it!
I’m so glad that I did!
Every time I looked around the corner to see this Picture Perfect Pantry it makes it all worth while!
Doesn’t that just make you smile? 😃😃😃
I just wonder if the new owners are enjoying the fruits of my labor? 😂
I have a step by step tutorial on my saved stories on Instagram if you want to see more.
Here’s a link to the baskets. They’re from BHG Live Better @walmart
Have a great week sweet friends!
With much love,
