I love this kitchen....
why?, look how grandmotherly it looks! I mean farmhouse sink, old wood stove, blackbloard....that's it, it's the blackboard that I am in love with! So, I have this messy area that is DRIVINMECRAZY! in my kitchen. Actually when we built this house 4 years ago I had wanted to add an office on the main level. Not a large one just a small one that would include a wrapping station. We were already in the works, foundation was poured and we were already behind so we nixed that idea. I regret doing that because it would have expanded my art studio also and given me room to sew with the extra room it would have given us downstairs. Plus, all my "messy" paper work would have been hidden. Advice....when you're building a home and you want to do something like that, go ahead and do it (finances approving) because you will regret it.
I love the blackboard in this kitchen.
So, I'm going to show you what I did.
First up, my messy desk (that sits right in the middle of our kitchen)
OMG, just looking at this picture gives me anxiety
so, I found this shelf that we will never use in the basement. (don't worry about the clip in the side, it will be hidden)
and I painted it with blackboard paint. (I wish it was magnetic) and, I wish it was larger. oh well, I may re-do it. and When they come out with magnetic blackboard paint will y'all let me know? Now all I have to do is draw on it and have fun, and mess my desk back up (that will be done today I have no doubt.) For now, I'm just going to write little sweet notes to myself!
I LOVE blackboard paint. Anyone that has kids should paint a big square in their room for kids (and adults) to play on!
Have a great day y'all!
