The Stencil's on the Wall

Okay friends, I need your help.  I think I have made a decision, but I would love to hear some second opinions.  Like Kenley's closet, I want to add character to Ashlynn's.  Her last closet was a single door with stacked wire shelving.  Now that she's getting bigger, her clothes only fit on the lowest bar, it's half the reason we are moving her room.  The other half is that her current room, is the smallest (although I still admit it's a pretty generous size), and the other is at the end of the hall next to Kenley's.  We always assumed the girls would have the rooms there since they are biggest and have the best closets - we assume they'll appreciate that decision in the teenage years.

So, since her room room is painted in BM Classic Gray (in my defense, she did request gray and white room), and it looks fairly mature for a three year old, I want to add in some fun with other items.  I want the closet to pop and make a statement.  I was originally just going to paint it Pantone Radiant Orchid, which I know is so last year, but it's the perfect shade of bright pinky purple that she loves.   

However, I love Kenley's closet so much, I wanted Ashlynn's to have just as much character.  So now I am deciding on a stencil.  These are my top choices, let me know your thoughts below!




So which is your favorite?  I'm hoping to get it done as soon as it arrives, so hopefully the reveal isn't too far away!

  9. Oh man! I love all three! They're all so fun and unique and pretty. I'm a total sucker for herringbone, it always catches my eye and I love it. So I suppose that is my official vote :p

  15. I am done with it, but I didn't clean up right away since K had gotten up from her nap. I've been trying to get the paint off, but because it's so intricate, it's taking some time. If I can get it in decent shape, I'd be happy to send it your way. I'll work on it a bit tomorrow and get back to you! It was probably one of the harder stencils, but still wasnt hard to do. I just think something big and basic like a simple geometric like chevron or something would probably be a joke in comparison. The roses would make such a pretty table cloth!

  17. Ok, so the company recommends cleaning with Simple Green, which I didn't have. I tried cleaning as best I could, but the residue on the back from the adhesive just really wasn't coming off. It still looks a hot mess.
