We Like to Draw on Our Walls...




















Drawing on the walls seems to be a natural childhood instinct... So, I painted a chalk board on our kitchen wall this weekend. Nikolai, Jason and I have been having fun drawing fire trucks, police cars and more. It is such a simple project and I was inspired by Lisa's kitchen backsplash and a new friend "Z's" kitchen cupboard. I also thought it looked great with my black and white photography and vintage typewriter. I added a red chair rail for a cleaner look and another bit of color. So, stop by for a visit and color on our walls!

Yay! I love having chalkboard walls. Andrea just painted a wall in her kitchen with chalkboard paint, too. It's a trend that's sweeping the east coast. It looks great!

What??? I could have stopped by and colored on your WALL???? Oh, sure, NOW I find this out! *grumbling*

I thought of you as I passed by the sign for your town! I was like "Oh, look, there's the town-with-the-wierd-name where Simply-June-who's-name-is-not-really-June lives!!!" LOL
