Hey All . .
It's funny how I can be so "anti" this or that, then suddenly it appears in my "must-haves." I remember not too long ago . . . well maybe in the late 90's I swore I would never have a single piece of wall paper in my house . . oh man, how that has changed, now I can't get enough. So never say never !
I always thought chalk board walls were a nightmare . . messy, dusty, dark. I did my share of coloring our front walkway for a hopscotch game with the kids - loved it while it was happening on a sunny afternoon - but then could not wait for it to rain that mess away - (I know - I am that person that has to have everything at a 45 degree angle on my desk) . .
Well it has appeared in my kitchen. I love the black hole of depth, I love the spontaneous comments by my kids, I love the instant class room (so I don't have to hoof my sometimes lazy butt upstairs during homework time). I love the "in my face grocery list."
Take a look at some other images out there . . .
Where I got my kitchen idea . .
For all the lovebirds out there to leave sweet notes . . like the lipstick on the bathroom mirror. . you know you have done that at least once in your life.

Especially love the sliding door hardware
Good way to funk up an old - yuck fridge . . and make it cool.
Ok. . this I dig, but I can't carry it in my purse . . my old-school husband would love it.
Until the art arrives, or maybe not !
So needless to day . . I am loving the look, maybe it's the black and white combo, maybe it's the sweet notes, maybe it's the ever changing "art," and maybe like everything I think I will keep - I'll paint over. But for now - it's my love of the moment.
