Love the chalkboard in the kitchen idea. I have the chalkboard.and it needs to be moved.but wall space is nil. I'll have to wait 'til the living room becomes the dining room and we expand out the front of the house.
Love the rustic floor trim. This is done by using the extra wood that comes off of the tree being cut into a square. You can see the bark is still on. Then it is cut into thin pieces for floor trim. Great re-use of the extra lumber from the log being cut.
