I have a little nook under my stairs where I love to display our family photos.
This space has undergone a few different changes over the years. This summer we decided to change things up just a little…
This is what it looked like when it was painted a dark brown color with pine cupboards underneath.
Then I stenciled the area but decided it needed a little lightening up….So we thought the cupboards would be pretty painted white and we added some beadboard to the back.
You can buy beadboard sections at your hardware store in different sizes. And it comes all pre-primed. So all you need to do is paint it and nail it up!!
I didn’t want to put any holes in the beadboard, so I hung the pictures with 3m Command Strips. So when I want to change the area up in awhile, all I have to do is pull the strips off and it won’t damage the beadboard.
I hung our family pictures, plus a few other embellishments. I took a gold “H” letter and wrapped and decoupaged with some Chevron fabric that matched the some pillow I made for my family room. And I also sprayed a garage sale frame turquoise for a pop of color. And added a couple bright plates with some vinyl. And then I made a little felt circle bunting and attached it to the top of the space with some gummy poster paste.
I love the white space with the bright pops of color. And it will be so easy to change up when I want a change. I know that about myself. I love to change things up!
Tell me — do you have a special place where you like to display YOUR family pictures?
How do you decorate that space??
