Christmas countdown pallet sign

Christmas is only nine days away and I realized I still needed to share this fun project that will help your little one's count down the days!

I started off by assembling my pallet sign and giving a light coat of white paint.

If you have a steady hand you can free hand your words onto the sign, but I'm not crazy about my handwriting so I printed out my wording on the computer.

I attached the paper to my board with tape and slipped a piece of carbon paper (black side down) underneath.

Then I traced over the words with a pencil.

Voila! Perfect wording! 

I used a small paintbrush to fill in the wording.
I found these cute chalkboards at Michael's that I hot glued on after the paint dried.

I used a needle and thread to string some festive pom poms and then hot glued the thread onto the back.

Add a hanger to the back and you are ready to start your countdown.

Cute, inexpensive, and easy a winning combination!

Staircase gallery wall

Last week I shared the new gallery wall in our family room and promised to show you what else received a new look in our home. Today I want to reveal another new gallery wall, this one is in our staircase.

I also moved our family sign to over the front door.

Since this stairway is one of the first things you see when you enter our home I decided to keep all the frames the same color and use all the black and white photos I previously had scattered around the house. 

It took me a few days to get the walls arranged to my liking, but now I'm loving both the new walls.

Thanks for stopping by!
