We spruced up two drab wardrobes to create tidy and trendy storage. 

Step 1

We sanded the wardrobes inside and out and primed them with Dulux Supergrip. We then painted the outside with Pearglo10RR 67/057 from Dulux. We painted the interior of one wardrobe a striking yellow Pearlglo 45YY 66/512 and inside the other wardrobe we used Pearglo white.

Step 2

We then fitted new door knobs.

Step 3

In the white wardrobe we used floral vinyl (hg20140417mw0006). We also inserted a spacesaver 3-drawer unit to create more organised storage, and placed storage baskets inside.

Step 4

We stencilled a bold pattern on the backing board of the yellow wardrobe.

Make Stencils

Materials you will need:

  • Small sponge roller and tray
  • Stencil laser cutting R50, Good Letter Best
  • Repositionable spray glue R106, The Deckle Edge
  • Paint in the colour of your choice ‒ we used Pearglo 10BG 39/244, R142, Dulux

Step 1

Download the stencil design from you.co.za or design your own. We had our stencil laser cut, but you can also cut it by hand with a craft knife. Place the stencil on newsprint and spray with glue.

Step 2

Position the stencil in the top left-hand corner inside the wardrobe and roll the paint over the stencil.

Step 3

Move the stencil down so the top of it touches the print above. Repeat the painting. Repeat until you have finished the first row, re-applying glue when necessary. Now do the same with the next rows. Position the stencil to touch the print on its left as well as the print above.
