I just wanted to share a quick little post about how I rearranged one of my kitchen walls. Tomorrow is my hubby’s birthday and we’re having out of town guests coming for the weekend. So I’m busy cleaning and making birthday food! Busy, busy.
A couple of weeks ago I made my giant chalkboard, and in doing so had to take down what was already hanging on that wall in the kitchen. I was time for it to come down as it was all way to small for that room. I never intended for it to be there long term, so happy day when I made the chalkboard!
And I may end up adding a few more little things on the side of the chalkboard. But for now, it’s all that’s hanging there. (And do you see my little mistake with the chalkboard?? I hung it just a little too far right and it overlaps the wall outlet a bit. I can still use the outlet, but it drives me crazy. I need to fix it by about an inch … whoops!)
I love my coffee typography decor, so where to put it now??
I never really loved this layout. It worked for a while, but now I have a new calendar hanging elsewhere in the kitchen. And I don’t need it anymore. I never liked the EAT sign on top hanging horizontally. It just make the wall too top heavy. I used the red and yellow floral pin board (is that what you call them??) to cover the phone jack on the wall.
See the phone jack? I have to have something that has a deep backing on it to be able to cover the phone jack. Well, lo and behold my big “Share a Random Moment” sign would be perfect.
So, I took everything off the wall, hung my EAT sign vertically and added back my coffee signs. Plus I added a clock I already had just to make it an odd number of things on the wall and something round to break up all of the straight lines. I love it!
It’s so much better than before and I feel like both walls are scaled appropriately.
Now, just to find the right material for the window treatments … still trying to figure that one out.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!! We’ll be partying it up over here!
