Odd space

There has always been this kind of odd narrow space
between the kitchen window that is over the sink and the 
8 ft slider that goes to the back yard.

It's only one foot wide, if that.
For years, I have tried hanging various things in that spot and they
always look wrong.

Inspiration hit the other day and Voila...
I am happy...so is the Family.


I sketched out a design and painted 4 coats of 
chalkboard paint.
Chalkboard paint is WONDERFUL!


Created the lettering and trim in white paint.
Wait about 48 hours before you write on chalkboard paint.


Then I baked chocolate chip cookies for the Fam.
Perfect for a COLD night...plus the house smells divine 
when baking.

Happy Tuesday!
Hugs,
Lisa
