Black Out…

country living
Hi! Well, the lockdown went well. Not as productive as I had hoped for, but I did get quite a bit done. Instead we spent the weekend indoors as the weather was shocking and while I was cleaning out my files I came across these images which I thought were too beautiful not to show.
I have always loved chalkboards in interiors and this shot above shows two of my favourite things – an Aga oven and a chalkboard.
Then there is this one. A whole wall! Imagine this in a cafe. I have always loved coffee shops and the like that have moody, warm colours and a chalky black wall is perfect.
I think this looks fabulous and our boys would love it also ;0)
Thinking back to when I painted our chalkboard in the kitchen, I don’t know how we survived without it now. It is SO handy.
I will show you what I made on lockdown as soon as I have finished the photographing of them.
Have a great day,
Ness xx

  • Nice black, very stylish. I would love a blackboard but am worried it will end up all white and grainy and messy. These images might inspire me to give it a go.

  • Lovely – I have a giant chalkboard in my family room too, and like you I couldn’t do without it now. It has everything from the childrens school/activity timetable, to shopping lists and lunch invites – I just wish my writing was a bit prettier! Can’t wait to see the products of your lockdown – I’m sure it will be amazing! x

  • Ive got a very small chalk board attached to my freezer door and love it…when we finally get the “one day house” there will definitely be a wall covered in chalk paint for sure…probably in every Hope you are getting lots done during your lock down x

  • Two great images! I love the self imposed lockdown…I need to do this in my office! Look forward to seeing the sewing complete…

  • It’s perfect – I love it! Thank you Ness for this inspiration!!!

  • Love the last image Ness….The styling for this is spot on and reminds me of ‘It’s Complicated’. I think it’s the brilliant way it’s been set up, just like Merryl Streep’s bakery (sigh).
    Take care
