Monday’s Make-it … { Chalkboard Paint in my Kitchen! }

Yep, that’s me on a ladder …. (not sure why on earth I was wearing dangling earrings that day!) …. painting away one of my kitchen walls … black! Ok, ok I’m not just painting it a simple ‘black’, but using CHALKBOARD (aka: FUN) paint! Why? Bec. hubby and I love leaving each other messages! A great design is one that fits ‘our’ (homeowner’s) lifestyle and this is def us!

(Oooh, hubby and I just celebrated our 3 year … woohooo … wedding anniversary this weekend!) Ok, back to today’s post. I wasn’t fond of chalk when in school (homework eeewww), but now i LOVE it (if only my teachers knew!): 

This wall is where we keep some of our fave spices out in the open (our pantry is to the right of it where we keep the ‘not so often used spices). 

Check out this old post I have that reveals a message my hubby left me on the chalkboard wall that had me in happy tears, plus it shows more pics of the wall!  With our lifestyle, I designed our kitchen items to be very accessible … for us, our fam/guests staying over, and even for my assistants - where items often used are visible = increases (accessibility) comfort level.

Even our spoons, forks, and ice-cream scooper (of course THAT has to be easily accessible!!) is visible for easy attainability. 

Working from a home office has looooots of perks including having a homey-kitchen with a huge fridge to add lunch for the day/week. I considered my assistants when designing my kitchen, wanting them to feel comfortable reaching for any spoon, fork, dish, bowl .. usage of the microwave or even the oven! Yep, that’s how we roll over here!

Did you see my post where I show how/where I hung my teacups? And in that post I mention how I swear I have non-white dinnerware as well … here’s the reveal below …. some of my fave bowls in my kitchen. What color(s) is your kitchen wall? Have a beautiful day!
