Coat Closet Makeover

Finally I can post a reveal for a room in our home that is completely finished! It's a small room but it took some work to get it to what it looks like now!
I won a stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils back in June from Pamela's awesome blog PB&J Stories. I picked the pretty casablanca stencil and got it within a couple weeks and I've been wanting to use it but never had time to until my son started school! He only goes on tuesdays so his first day of school I took
advantage and I pulled out the stencil and the free quart of glidden paint I got in Goldenrod a while back and I tackled this project! Here are the before pictures. The closet was super messy and disorganized and pretty embarrassing opening it and all the junk spilling out! lol This is the view from the dinning room, it's very hard to get a full shot of this closet since it's in the hallway.....
Here is what the top and bottom sections of this 
closet looked like before the makeover..
and here is what the closet looks like
 now without the coats...
The stencil was super easy to use! I love the outcome! I was a little impatient waiting for the paint to dry on some parts so there are some messed up bits here and there but you cant tell and it's a closet so it doesn't matter! lol It was practice for the wall in the dinning room I plan to stencil one day! 
Here are more afters for you all to see...
Here is the cost breakdown for this room:
Stencil: FREE 
Paint: FREE
Shoe Rack: $12.99 at Target 
 Storage Boxes: $9.99 at IKEA (2 pack)
Wood Hangers: $5.97/ 3 packs of 5 at IKEA
Bottom Baskets: FREE (already had)

TOTAL= $28.95 

The shoe rack thing is supposed to have a bottom shelf but the shelf wouldn't fit because of the baseboard on the bottom so I removed it and added the baskets so there wouldn't be a weird gap on the bottom. So what do you think?  I wish you could all see this in person because the pictures just don't do it justice! I tried to get full shots but it's really hard since this coat closet is in the hallway and it's just very hard to photograph! Here are some before & afters together:

  4. That is sooo cute! I don't even have a coat closet :( I love that stencil. I'm done doing projects at our current house. Once we're lucky enough to move to a bigger house I think I'll be trying something like this!
