DIY Fortuny Stenciled Dressing Room

Today I’m sharing a few more shots of my stenciled wall project from the other day!

Does my romantic, feminine dressing room (which is actually just a big closet in a guest room and not where anyone dresses) look more like a baby’s nursery than a grown woman’s hangout?


But you already know I haven’t quite grown up yet.

The stencil I used is a great big one (26″ x 43″) called Fortuny by Royal Design Studio.

The large stencil size means much less work and time!

The base color on the wall is Benjamin Moore White Dove, and the light grey I rolled on is Martha Stewart Sharkey Gray.

The industrial rolling racks were lovingly made by my husband.

Do you like the newly embellished closet wall, which required no special skills to complete?

It was a breeze with the gorgeous stencil.

Next mission: configuring fairy lights inside the closet.

Peace to you right where you are.

    Wow. I love this look. Can you believe I've never stenciled a wall before? Although you've just inspired me. maybe in my next house? I like your choice of the big stencil pattern too and those pale shades create such an elegant look. You did a great job my friend.

    thanks, you guys! it was super simple but makes such an impact. the wall will be a great backdrop for styling some of my art and looks beautiful with nothing at all. @leslie, try it! it's only paint!

    Gorgeous! I used to stencil in the late 80's/early 90's when it was a lot of work! This looks like wallpaper…..did you say you rolled the top color on? Too easy! Visiting from What's It Wednesday

    Still beautiful! What type of camera do you have? I need to get something better for taking pictures for my blog..I'm not too techy so I don't know much about photography. I love the stencil you chose to use…I've wanted to try stenciling but I'm a little chicken of messing up! :0) Hope you have a great weekend!

    Ahhhh, of course fairy lights… that would be the piece de resistance… ( i know i didn't spell that right)
    I loooove your dressing room/closet/magical 3D art creation. And that custom industrial rack is so freakin great. I need one for a bedroom upstairs that doesn't have a closet. It's really really cool! Ever since seeing this space i have been walking around here looking for a place to do the exact same stencil with the exact same colors… it's sooooooooooooooooo pretty! I really do just want to go sit right in the middle of the floor in there
