Let's go back, back to the beginning....
sorry for getting the Duffster in your head, but let's go back to where Kenley's room started.
This hot mess.
You may remember the closet had sliding doors. Doors that weren't connected to the floor so they not only slid side to side, but also could swing in and out. Perfect for pinching little fingers, or adult ones too.
On top of that, they were painted a nasty color I affectionately refer to as poop. With a blue interior.
We first removed the doors, cheap wire shelving, and then primed the whole room. We painted the room and closet alcove to match, with Sherwin Williams Vaguely Mauve, then painted all the brown trim bright white.
Instead of putting the cheap wire shelf/bar back, I used this closet makeover I pinned years ago to inspire and guide us. We used the same Ikea Expedit shelf unit and anchored it centered in the alcove. But before we did that, I placed the gold dots from Urban Walls across the back. After debating if I wanted them equally spaced wide from ceiling to floor, I decided it'd be a fun and different look to have them concentrated across the center peeking out between the upper and lower bars we planned to install.
The 4" dots came on one complete sheet of contact paper with five dots vertical in a row. I measured the width of the alcove and divided by 10, I had 50 dots (10 rows of 5). I then figured out how much space needed to be between them and cut them row by row. I marked where each row would go and then applied them (according to directions) one by one to make sure they were evenly spaced and level. My only mistake was that I based my calculation on the assumption the dots were exactly 4" wide as the product description states. In reality, my dots were a few eighths of a inch shy. Which left me with a gap at the end of closet. I measured and realized I had enough space for one more row. I contacted owner Danielle, and she sweetly agreed to send me one extra "row" of five to complete the space, since they are usually sold in packs of 50.
