Welcome To My Fall Kitchen

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

I still love my breadboard made especially for me by my sweet friend Diana over at Our Vintage Home Love.    I believe she’s offering them in her shop again….check it out!

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!

Judy- It looks so good. I am in LOVE with that chalkboard wall. I believe that everyone should have one. The chlakboard wall helps to ground the black refrigerator. All looks great!!!! Enjoy:)

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

It looks great, Judy, and I love the frames on the walls. Even the empty ones look good. : )

I really love it! I think your black chalkboard wall helps your black appliances flow better with your space too. It looks like everything is color coordinated so well. I have that same chalkboard you're using on your table. I never thought of using it as a tray. Great idea! Your kitchen is full of wonderful ideas.

Stacey said...

Judy, everything looks great. The chalkboard wall is wonderful. Love all your accessories too. I've loved all the transformations of your kitchen over the years.

Diana said...

I love it! Everything looks wonderful! I especially love the calf head mounted on the chalkboard wall. And I love that old frame with the boxwood wreath inside. Beautiful! xo

I absolutely LOVE your Fall kitchen, Judy! Your chalkboard wall turned out perfectly ... what a cool way to showcase your awesome goodies, too! Wow! Love your moo head ... I really need one of those fellas. I "want" your demijohns ... amazing vignettes, too!

Buttercup Bliss said...

Your kitchen looks awesome!! I love all the special touches - especially the chalkboard wall! It is such a cozy room!

Looks outstanding Judy!! Luv that wonderful old frame with the boxwood wreath.

Finally catching up on your posts. Your chalkboard wall looks wonderful! You mentioned in another post about painting the door white. I don't think you need to do that. The black door looks beautiful with it (and black doors are the latest trend!:))All your fall accents look good too. You are waaaaay ahead of me. Hope your mom did okay with her medical tests.

Your kitchen is wonderful!
Not only is it a feast for the eyes, it looks so inviting.
I love your fall arrangement in the urn on the table.

Enjoyed visiting,

Seeing that cow head on your chalkboard wall has me contemplating adding my newly purchased deer head on my kitchen chalkboard wall... :-)

Gypsy Heart said...

Everything looks beautiful! I really, really like the chalk board framed area with the wreath. Yes, don't season it! :)
