DIY NEW YEAR’S EVE | Chalkboard Resolution Wall & Bar Cart



Can you believe its almost 2017 already?! Where did the year go! I am super excited to be hosting a New Years party, and want to wow my guests with some fun decor. Today I’m going to show you how to transform a space in your home into a bar area with a resolution wall. I have white walls in my apartment and wanted to do something a little more dramatic, but temporary for the occasion. I got some chalkboard cabinet liner and cut it into long strips to create a graphic black and white wall. Not only is the wall a great focal point, but it also doubles as a functional party activity! Your guests can write their resolutions and goals for the year right on the wall. Next, I took a wooden bar cart from and decked it out in all the ingredients to make Moscow mules, including some fun copper cups. I added a few more chalk board paint accessories, like the bowl and the vase, so guests could write on multiple surfaces. Finish it off with a fresh fruit and flowers, and you’ve got the perfect bar area! The new year is all about transformations, and I love who bold this area looks now. I can’t wait to see your take on this DIY project. For more tips and pics head to
