I recently decorated the base of our stairwell with some thrift and flea market finds that I had painted and given new life. The wall at the right of the stairwell was begging for some sort of wall art. While shopping at Michaels Craft Store I found large letters made from a paper mache type cardboard on sale for $5 each. I decided to to get a large "W" for our last name, which is Walker. With some leftover Black Chalkboard Paint that I had on hand, I brushed on a quick coat and let it dry... There you have it. This was seriously the easiest ever DIY wall art!!!
Below is a picture of what it looked like before I painted it. I always say it's amazing what a little paint can do!
I waited about 15 minutes for the paint to dry and then I put Command Picture Hanging Strips on the back to make for easy hanging. Command Strips are awesome for hanging lightweight items and they don't damage the walls (which I love)!!!
I've always like the look of decorating with letters, but this is the first time I've actually done it. I like it so much that I think I'll do another somewhere else in our home :)
Until next time,
