Picture Perfect Pantry

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.
