The new house has a super secret hidden door. A super secret hidden door to where? Now that I won’t reveal.
(It leads to a closet.)
A labyrinth of creperies and gelato shops, you may wonder? Or, a den filled with carpeted cat towers and a thousand kittens? Maybe it’s a faux-wood-paneled rec room with Brady Bunch reruns playing 24/7?
Or, maybe, just maybe, it is a place to store my extra kitchen stuff.
Do you ever just see stuff on Pinterest that you not only love but you’re cuckoo over? That is how I felt over this Luis Bustamante image:
Maybe it is the body…parts. Definitely the chalky part, and, of course, the gold part. And just like that I knew what to do with a boring closet wall in the kitchen.
See the hidden door there? And the simple picture moulding that will be painted gold? That whole wall will be a framed chalkboard…with a hidden door to the labyrinth of kittens eating Nutella crepes while musing over the mysterious George Glass.
I like this idea because 1) I’m not over a chalkboard in the kitchen, 2) we used the one in the last kitchen all the time, 3) it is continually changing art, 4) I can layer a body part or piece of furniture in front of it for all the good reasons we like to layer.
And, I’m so happy it is finally done! I have spent, seriously, hours over the renovation thus far discussing this hidden door situation. I’ve discovered that there are those who do not appreciate or see the merits of a hidden chalkboard door and will therefore avoid building it until the mean homeowner lady insists that it happen. Or something like that.
Here’s hoping I get to scrawl on that wall before Christmas.
(Oh, and there are more peeks at the house and other nonsense on Instagram.)
