I’m recently made some changes in my kitchen that I love….one being the addition of a chalkboard wall and the other adding the yearling calf head that I FINALLY got from Décor Steals to another wall. So without a lot of chit chat let’s get right to it because, seriously, isn’t that what you’ve come to see?
Here’s a view as I’m standing in the dining room. My kitchen is a galley type and it’s hard to get the full view standing in the room (I just noticed my husband’s favorite yellow cup !)
I had planned on putting my yearling calf head inside a chippy old frame you’ll see on another wall but it was destined to be knocked off and I just didn’t want to risk it so I put it on the big chalkboard wall
Yes, I know I have a couple of empty frames and I’m looking for something special to put in them but for the time being, I don’t mind that they are empty
Cozy little corner by the sink
Here’s the old frame I planned on using for the yearling head but it just didn’t work out. My husband traced out the dimensions of the INSIDE of the frame onto the wall, I taped that off and painted it with more chalkboard paint. I haven’t “seasoned” it yet and may not. I used one of my boxwood wreaths inside and added an old white platter above (you can hardly see it in this photo). I love the simplicity of the wreath against the black.
On our table I used a little runner I’ve had along with a chalkboard “think-a-ma-jig” I’ve used in several other places….topped it with a chippy old urn, fall candle ring and a painted pumpkin. Added a scented little candle and another candlestick along with a sweet little faux pumpkin I picked up and I had my fall centerpiece for practically zero dollars!
You can read about this pumpkin and a turquoise one I made here.
My kitchen has been through several metamorphosis over the last several years but I can honestly say that I’ve finally got a look that I’m totally in love with.
I’m still adding some other fall touches in the house and will share those soon. Thank you for taking time to visit me today!
