Welcome back to The Holiday Home Series.
In the dining room, I usually have a round black mirror over the buffet. I moved it into the living room when I decorated our Christmas mantle.
To fill in the space I used an old mirror I had stashed away to create a Christmas menu board.
Here is what it looked like when I brought it up from the dungeon (also known as my storage room).
I gave the frame a quick coat of Krylon primer and my very favorite Krylon Cherry Red Spray paint, the same color I used for the Christmas Highchair.
After the frame dried, I applied Rustoleum Chalkboard Paint from the can, directly onto the glass mirror. They sell a primer that is recommended for adhesion but to be honest, I skipped that step and it turned out great.
It was a little early to decide on the Christmas dinner menu so, I hand wrote the lyrics to one of my favorite Christmas carols for the interim.
Since we have a faux tree, I like to use fresh greens throughout the house for the fresh pine scent of Christmas.
In this case, I picked up a basic fresh pine wreath and embellished it with glittered snowflakes from the Country Living Ornament Collection at Kmart.
I bought every last snowflake at The Dollar Tree so for this project,
I had to resort to the $2 snowflakes at Kmart.
My plan is to display our Christmas greeting cards around the menu board using double sided tape.
Hopefully, in the age of the internet, we will get a few.
