When I decorate for Christmas, I focus more on small touches all over rather than the big pop of an amazing Christmas tree. This is mainly because I don’t really have a good spot in my house for a big tree. This year I decided it would be fun to re-work the chalkboard chair that I have hanging on the wall in my kitchen. You may remember it …
It was easy to add a pop of Christmas to this chair. First, a confession. I was going to re-do the chalkboard design, but when I went to erase the existing design I realized I pressed a little too hard with my chalkboard pencil the first time around and it was embedded too deep. Drat! I debated getting out the chalkboard paint and adding another coat, waiting for it to dry, then adding a new design, but I had no time for that. So I cheated. I printed out a chalkboard printable and then just taped it onto the chair. You can find the free printable here.
It’s not too obvious from a distance, but up close it looks a little wonky. Maybe if I find some spare time, I’ll re-do it the right way. But for now, it is what it is.
I also removed the linen towel that was hanging from the chair and replaced it with my Reindeer feed sack filled with greens and wooden snowflake ornaments. Were you wondering what Santa fed to Dasher and Dancer? Well, now you know!
And with just those couple of changes, I have a fun Christmas decoration for the wall.
