Happy Monday friends! It's my 35th birthday today and it's supposed to be in the 50's here in KC - best present ever for a girl who dislikes winter as much as I do! No big plans except for a take out sushi date at home with hubby later tonight. My number says 35, but I think I will always, in my head, feel 25, and I guess that's a good thing! :)
Now, onto a quick Christmas post. I wanted to do something a little different on our chalkboard wall this year. I made this DIY pom garland a few years ago and thought it would make the perfect Christmas Tree garland. A little chalk, some black electrical tape, and some fake presents, and we have another tree in our home this year!
This chalkboard wall separates the mudroom from the kitchen, and is directly connected to the pantry (on the right). It's hard to photograph, so I did the best I could!
The mudroom holds the dry erase board that I update every week with our calendar of events. It holds several hooks for backpacks and coats, and it holds the kid's artwork and projects that come home on our DIY Kid's Art Display. Basically, it is a kid friendly space and adding this whimsical little tree fits in perfectly. I made some fake presents to put under the tree too!
I like the pop of color and the added whimsy it brings. The kids love it as you can imagine! Inspiration for the actual look of the tree came from here!
I will be posting a full Christmas home tour on Thursday, so come back for that! xo
