DIY

decorating a stairwell landing

The landing on our stairwell was a blank slate, so I decided to mix it up a bit!

And here are the before and after pics from this easy project.

We already owned most of this art, which made this a cheap project! Much of it was hanging further down the staircase, and I’d wanted to lighten up that gallery anyway.

I hung this sconce (affiliate link) and used the magic light trick from Nesting with Grace to make the sconce battery-operated. No need to call an electrician!

I installed this small shelf (affiliate link) from Amazon and splurged on a faux plant from Pottery Barn (the “wandering prayer” plant). I’ve had my eye on that one for a while, and it did not disappoint! We also tucked in a red rhinoceros because John loves them–it’s connected to his memories of spending time and laughing with dear friends, and it makes him happy to see this tiny guy hiding under our faux stairwell plant.

Enjoy the weekend!
