master closet makeover with chasing paper.

Thank you to Chasing Paper for providing us with removable wallpaper for this post. All opinions are my own.

When we moved into our home a few months ago it needed a lot of work. The walls were worn with scribbles, holes that needed to be patched up, peeling paint, and scuffs -- pretty much the normal wear and tear you would expect from a family of five. And if that wasn't enough the kids rooms were hot pink and lime green (!!!) and every room had popcorn ceilings. So we decided to leave it to the professionals and have them paint every room in the house and remove the popcorn ceilings. After we wrote them a big fat check we decided to tackle the master closet on our own. 

Our master walk-in closet is the stuff of dreams -- it has a pocket door, 8 built-in drawers, 8 huge shelves, and spacious his/her areas for hanging up clothes. But the closet was in rough shape and it needed some love. It took us a few weekends to putty the holes, caulk the corners, sand, and clean. My father-in-law helped us with three coats of white paint last weekend, and we installed the finishing touches -- new knobs, hooks, and patterned wallpaper! 

Chasing Paper is a line of stylish removable wallpaper. They have a ton of different patterns and colors to choose from and the paper will stick to nearly any surface. It's also really easy to install. Of course I'm a big fan of all of the blue patterns:
After a lot of debate I chose the black Speckle pattern (aka dalmation print). The print is really popular with a lot of style bloggers and I thought it would look great in our closet. But when I received the paper it just wasn't "me" -- H wasn't a fan either. So I exchanged it for the light blue Dot + Line pattern. The paper is gorgeous and perfect for our space. It was also easy to install -- just peel, stick, and trim with a X-ACTO knife. We finished off the wall with some silver hooks for my jewelry and now we have a finished master closet we can be proud of!

  2. I love your new closet!! Definitely brightens up the place. I wish we could do that, but ours has this weird paint on it that I don't think removable wallpaper would take so well to.

  4. Ooooh the closet! Love the set up for starters, and it's so great with the wallpaper. I want to do this kind of thing so bad with the tiny little bathroom we have off of our room in the new house. I've sort of taken it over as my makeup/jewelry area and it would be so fun with some patterned paper above the wainscoting.

  13. My closet is so pitiful and small (although this wall paper would kick it up a notch). Seriously though our closets are so small, Pres doesn't even have one otherwise there would be no room for David's clothes. One day...one day {sigh}
