* New Chalkboard * New Coffee Bar *

Good Sunday to all of you.  As we end the holiday week end.  Hope you all had a great Christmas and great New Years.

I have a little post today on my new chalk board and with change ups going on in my dining room I moved the coffee bar.

This was the old coffee bar I had in my dining room.  Now with a change up to the dining room I will no longer have this coffee bar.

No worries...........



Just moved it into the Kitchen.

So hard to get a good picture in this kitchen ughhh!


It does look much nicer in "real life" than in these pictures.

Remember this old vintage frame that had the queen sign in it over my desk.  Some of you suggested a chalk board inside that frame would look great.

Well I have to agree.  It makes for a cute chalk board.

Hope your New Year is starting out to be creative and fun.  I am enjoying the little switch-a-roos for the start of the new year.  Still working on the dining room hope to get that done this week.
Have a great week.
Stay warm.
Kris

  4. Kris, I love the new chalkboard.. It will be fun to do little encouraging quotes. I think the coffee bar will work just fine in the kitchen. I really like your kitchen. I think every sink should have a window..I have one. I like looking out ,while washing up things. Blessings for a great Sunday. I think we are to have nasty weather this week. Please be safe when going out. xoxo,Susie

  9. hi Kris,
    I love the coffee bar station in the Kitchen a million times more, your whole kitchen feels like a cottage cafe, loving your farmhouse sink and the window over it. I am excited to see more of what's to come of your dinning room now and the changes it takes on.
    Happy New Year to you my dear, and many blessings.
    I received your holiday card and was over joyed to see it was from you.

    See you soon, I am still re cooperating in bed from this terrible virus that is holding me back from doing anything exciting at the moment.

    Lots of love, and lots more inspiration your way this year.

    Xx

  11. I love the coffee bar move, it looks great and I bet it will be better used in the kitchen. Do you repaint the chalkboard black and re letter it for every new saying? It looks like you used the chalk pen not the dusty type chalk?

  12. Dear nurse Kris,
    Flu turned into bronchitis... Oh Kris I so like the coffee bar in your kitchen much more, Your kitchen is like a cottage hug with an accent of farmhouse french! I love the warm vibe your kitchen gives off, could linger in conversation in your delightful room. White frame turned chalkboard ... Perfection. So looking forward to seeing your nordic changes to your dining room.

  18. Oh I just love the art on your new chalkboard.

    I have to tell you....when I first looked at the coffee bar picture my perspective was off. I saw the trashcan and then saw the shelves and thought everything was huge...like I first thought the trash can was. Strange until I figured it out. LOL

    I love your farmhouse sink and all the lovely white. HAVE FUN! Anita

  54. Ive put this picture of your kitchen as my background on my pc, just wanted you knowing that , as it is similar to my own kitchen and yet looks bolder with all the shelves and all the white, so my husband is slowly coming around to what I want for our kitchen having looked at this one** I love your style and cannot wait to see more, all the best from across the pond.. janzi

  58. Stopping by from Anne's. As colorful as your home is on the outside, it's just as "angelically" chic on the inside. Love your new coffee bar (and the old one, too). That angel saying is precious. Pinned and shared ! Amy
