Hi friends! I don’t want you to think I forget about posting my kitchen makeover. In true me fashion, I’ve gotten distracted with other projects and the kitchen remains on the almost done list.
One of those projects was the inside of my corner cabinet. It’s just so plain… and so white. It’s the only cabinet in our kitchen that has a glass door so I decided it needed some pizzazz. That pizzazz came in the form of a little cabinet stenciling.
While I love the grays and blues we have throughout our house, I decided I needed to add a little pop of my favorite color somewhere in the kitchen. Here was my chance!
Kitchen Cabinet Stenciling
These are the supplies I used:
I started out by taping off the cabinet edges and shelves, followed by painting the inside walls of the cabinet with Bahama Blue.
To keep the stencil in place on the walls, I sprayed the back of the stencil with spray adhesive (this also helps prevent paint from seeping under the stencil).
After the stencil was in place, I applied the Deep Midnight Blue paint in a dabbing motion with a foam brush. With stenciling, it’s better to do a couple of thin coats to build opacity rather than laying on a thick coat of paint. Thick coats will cause blurry lines on the stencil edges. I repositioned the stencil (spraying with adhesive each time) on each cabinet wall and painted until complete.
I love how the cabinet stenciling turned out… it gave the kitchen just the pop of color it needed! Now I’m one step closer to finishing the kitchen! Keep a look out for my kitchen makeover to see how I styled the cabinet’s shelves… that part is still TBD. 😉
You could easily stencil this design (or any design) onto a bookshelf, desk, file cabinet, accent wall or really whatever you want!
What do you think of the finished project? Do you have any open shelves or cabinets in your kitchen? How have you decorated them?
Thanks for stopping by!
