A while back I decided that the walls leading down to our garage would look pretty great with chalkboard paint. Turning the entire stairwell into one large chalkboard to doodle on :)

The graffiti, drawings, sayings, etc. change quite frequently. A few days ago, I washed the entire stairwell walls and decided to decorate the walls for the holidays.

With the weather most of us are experiencing right now, I think the Winter Wonderland scene is appropriate.
|Deer Antler "Mount"|
I'm kinda digging the whole deer/antlers/hunting theme decor right now, so I decided to add my own "mount" to the wall.
The lists are for my daughters. I thought this would be a fun way for them to write down the items they would like for Christmas. (They are 14, 16, and 22...really hard ages to buy for!)
I hope you enjoyed this post. I can say that it was a cheap DIY project from the beginning. I used Martha Stewart's recipe for homemade chalkboard paint. I added 2 tablespoons of unsanded grout to 1 cup of flat-finish latex paint (multiplying the recipe to make enough to cover the walls). I picked up the unsanded grout at the thrift store. It was a partially used box so the price and amount were perfect for this project. I already had the flat black paint on hand from another project. The DIY project is pretty cheap but can pack a lot of punch when it comes to decorating!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I am so thankful to be blogging and creating and I am so thankful for you!
