Inspired by Pinterest!

This weeks Pinterest Inspiration was one of the first pictures that I Pinned in my Pinterest File.  Guess it's about time I got around to doing it, right?  

Here is the Inspiration photo:
pinned from Pinterest

It's a lovely stairwell with all black frames exactly like my stairs going down into our basement; except mine is devoid of any lovely decorations like the ones in the photo.
 The Charcoal drawing of my daughter was done on the Spanish Steps in Rome... Love that picture. 

A trip to Michaels and JoAnne's and a little Stencil paint 
and there you go! 
Embellished Stairwell!  
 I can keep adding as time goes on.  
 It's not a HUGE change, 
 but sometimes it's the details that matter...
 And there you have my Pinterest
"Stop Pinning and DO Something" 
of the Week.

Ta Da !

I love the "stop pinning and do something"! I can be on there for hours. The gallery wall looks great!

Very nice. I love family walls. I'd worry about you up a ladder on those stairs. How do you it safely?

I love your version.

Joi said...

I love this, Cindy, and need to do something with my stairwell, too. Hopefully, with your inspiration, it won't be too long before I take the plunge and fix it up a bit!
