We have a skinny closet in our living room right by our front door that houses our coats, shoes, and a bunch of games like Scrabble, Lie Detector, Monopoly, & Jenga. Since we go in & out of here several times a day to get shoes out & put shoes away, I thought it might be fun to do something special to this door.
Awhile back I purchased this “book” called Stencil 101 Decor and have been waiting to find the perfect space to stencil. So.. you guessed it – I stenciled the door! It turned out great and is an easy DIY for anyone to do.
I used a “quatrefoil” style stencil and an alphabet letter as an accent. Also, I did not want the door to be a focal point, but rather a special detail, so the paint I used was the same flat paint I used on the surrounding walls. It’s best to use something like a foam brush (I used a make-up sponge) and to do several coats, as opposed to one thick coat. Check it out!
