Yes?

The kitchen has been painted and I have pictures. But first, a little history.

From what my eyes tell me, most areas of our kitchen had wallpaper. Make that have – the owner prior to us painted over the existing wallpaper. Luckily, they did a good job. Having wallpaper on most of the walls in our kitchen gives us the advantage of smooth walls. Having smooth walls gives us the opportunity to paint more chalk walls.

Our nephews will love it. We’re not completely sure about it, but we think it’s pretty cool.

But first, the Before.


way before.



after.

  1. Love the textured look of this and the darker tone.

    Makes a nice frame for the room beyond also.

    Come back to SoCal soon, and bring your designer-self. 🙂

  2. YES!!! it also eliminates the need for a magnetic grocery list on the fridge. just write it on the wall 🙂

  3. Aha! Glad you guys are embracing chalk board paint. We wrote vday notes to each other and it was better than any hallmark card. Looks really great! Am I insane though? I don’t remember that doorway being that wide…

    • That is so sweet, Jess. I may have to brainstorm what marvelous things I could use it for. I’m trying to remember when you and Brandon were here. If it was prior to April 2010, it’s quite possible that the opening was just a pass through window at that point. But since the demolition, the size hasn’t changed. In other words, you might not be crazy, but you also might be. Sorry.
