We have this great central wall in our kitchen but it's right next to the doorway into the laundry/mud room. At the end of the laundry room is our pantry. The garage door is also just on the other side of this doorway, and there's a door into the backyard across from that. So we go in and out of that room too often to keep this door shut. However, when it's open it covers this great kitchen wall space.
I'm happy to report all my dreams have come true with this wall! A huge chalkboard is so fun in the kitchen, with endless uses really! The magazine rack filled with papers is not the prettiest, but this is real life after all; and there are so many papers that come and go right? This helps keep them off the counter anyway : )
Here's a few shots of what's been on our chalkboard over the past month. (We have 4 out of 6 birthdays in Dec. and Jan.)
