Plain Closet Makeover into Glam Dressing Room

Our master bath had a functional issue--it had NO storage for my beauty products which was taking over the entire bathroom vanity and making a mess. Plus, our master closet was awfully tiny for two of us. So as part of a master suite overhaul, we transformed tiny, plain closet into a glammy dressing room using DecoArt metallic paints and stencils from Royal Design Studio. (Our displaced closet was REPLACED with an Ikea closet system in the bedroom).
I enjoyed this project since it is very different from the design motif in the rest of my house. A little more glammy than my normal tastes, but hidden where it doesn't clash with anything.
My own little private oasis where I can put down the paintbrush and DIY equipment and be a girly girl for a change!
It's a tiny room....but here is a final picture of the back wall of my closet. (I need a fisheye lens on a camera).
Closet before. Holes in the wall from tearing down the shelving. Some major patchwork ahead
Location of my tiny glam dressing room
Here you can see the shape of the room. No windows, but lots of light added later.
I used craft paint on the wall as my base coat (from DecoArt). More on the blog
A cross-hatch technique was used to apply the DecoArt Metallic paint.
Find the center of the wall, begin stenciling from there until the entire wall is filled.
Royal Design Studio stencil is called "Teardrop Trellis".
I left a slight gap at the top of the ceiling, then later I "cut in" using paint.
Stencil application.
The stencil comes with slits that help you line up the pattern.
You push the stencil into the corner, then use a foam roller (not heavily coated with paint) to push paint as far into the corner as you can).
Cutting into the corners to fill gaps
Later we installed electrical outlets, and added two vanity lights on either end of the mirror. We are still working on this room, but it solved a number of space issues in our small master bedroom!
