I have been collecting images of gorgeous kitchens for a long time.
As soon as I see something I like, I pin it without analyzing why… which has really helped me define what it is that I am continually drawn to (clean white kitchens with floor to ceiling cabinetry).
Lately though, I have been drawn to black walls/chalkboard paint as a really nice counterpoint for lots of glossy clean white.
These are from my kitchen inspiration board:
It’s one thing to live vicariously through Pinterest – collecting pictures of chalkboards you like – and quite another thing to bite the bullet and actually follow through on a project.
Let me tell you – chalk board paint is a nightmare to work with: It’s like trying to paint with honey.
But I am proud to say that I am not all talk and no action – this is my chalkboard wall in the kitchen!
I initially thought I would add upper and lower cabinets to this little nook to create some proper wine storage underneath, plus create an iPhone dock/charging station/stuff collection area like this one I found at houzz :
But I really love the blackness of the wall!
Here’s another visual: it’s a small section of wall tucked beside the pantry cupboards.
What should I do???
