My new kitchen message center:
I’ve rearranged my photo wall in my dining room several times. Here’s one past arrangement:
here for details.
Go here to see the ledge I made for my electronics in my family room.
The other day I decided this would be great to use in my kitchen. The desk area has been through several transformations. It used to look like this . . . .
What a mess!! Then it changed to this . . . .
Better but I needed to fill the wall space and I needed a place to organize our day to day schedule. I created several framed lists (breakfast choices, lunch choices, cleaning schedules, etc . . . . ) that I write on with wet erase markers. They need to be taken down frequently as my daughter fills out two of them and my husband or I the third (On Sunday my daughter writes what she wants for lunch for the week on one board and breakfast for the week on the other and my husband or myself use the dinner one to plan our meals for the week). I have a hard time taking them down and putting them up since they’re on nails. You can also see all the previous nail holes from prior arrangements. Since I’m planning to paint my kitchen soon I decided I needed a better system.
The photo ledge is so easy to make and I have a ton of scraps so I decided this would be perfect.
It took me longer to paint it then it did to build.
Did you notice the wall color? You’re getting a sneak preview of my new kitchen color. It looks so different and I LOVE how it makes the white pop!! My kitchen makeover isn’t completely finished yet but I’ll post pictures as soon as I can.
Did you also notice what’s missing from the shelf on the right? My calendar blocks that my craft club made are also getting a makeover. Stay tuned . . . .
