Kitchen Envy

1  //  2  //  3  //  4

Just wanted to share some serious kitchen envy today.  Just waiting for the green light to start taking cupboard doors off and painting cabinets, ripping out the old backsplash and replacing it with white subway tiles, and the new counter, oh a new counter!  Maybe if I just put it out there enough, you know that this is my dream, it’ll just happen.  Or, maybe I’ll get started this weekend.


Completely Pinteresting: Chalkboard Kitchen Wall

I’ve been addicted to chalkboard paint.  I think everyone in my family got some sort of homemade item with chalkboard paint on it for Christmas.  I’m sure there’s a support group out there somewhere, but I’m not ready to admit it’s a problem.  Yet.  I’ve been pinning away at ways in incorporate this little obsession of mine into my kitchen.  For a while I was thinking of having chalkboard cabinets, like Elsie from ‘A Beautiful Mess.’  We’re opting for open cabinets (still makes me nervous!), so a simple wall seemed to be the best bet!  This wall that I saw originally on Design Sponge featuring Kirra Jamison is what totally inspired me.

I was going to post a “before” pic, but it was just white and boring.  Although I am super happy with what this wall brings to the kitchen, it’s not completely finished.  I want to find another place for the garbage can, and to find a stool for kitchen visitors in its place.  I’m on the hunt.  I hate that doorbell box, so I’m going to have Dan make a black cover for it.  I suggested spray painting it black, but he thinks that is a sin against all things antique.  I am so in love with this wall!  Writing menus, reminders, love notes, temporary wallpaper, favorite quotes, etc. is so very exciting!  I love to doodle.

Clearly, I need practice writing level on a wall.  It’s been almost 2 years since I’ve been in a classroom!
