Grape themed Kitchen

Kitchen Menu – Project! | theStudio  January 9, 2013 – 00:00

So I was lucky enough to have my kids AND my hubby home for Christmas break this year. I took the 2 weeks and worked on projects around the house that I have been putting off,or things that were bugging me and needed fixing.

One thing I have had for the past few years is a list of our dinners for a 2 week time span. I plan out meals to have and purchase groceries based on those meals,so when I go to cook I have what I need. Well I have always done this on a piece of paper ripped out of a notebook,sometimes the back of an old sheet of paper,all in all it’s always been real ugly! Then I had the great idea to fancy it up a bit! There is this amazing product out there,CHALKBOARD VINYL! Can you imagine the possibilities?! Um I have this stuff all over my house!! I even have a tupperware container with a piece on the top of it,so I can write little notes to my 1st grader in his lunch! I just wipe it off the next day and write a new one…back on track to my dinner menu.

Well at first I thought I will just stick a piece of chalkboard to my fridge,which is completely do-able…easy and works,but well I wanted a bit more. I have a grape themed kitchen.My kitchen is typically painted purple (and I LOVE it) and I have this awesome strand of grape lights that hubby hung around the top ceiling of the kitchen. So when I saw the amazing Wine Country kit from Aimee Harrison,well it basically looked like my kitchen so I had to have it! And this is how I fancied up my menu!

I made an 8 X 10 background using her fabulous kit,and while I was designing it I had a black rectangle on my canvas as well to show me where my chalkboard vinyl was going to go,once I was happy with it I deleted the rectangle and saved my background. I sent it off and had it printed at my local photo shop.

This is how it looked when I got it. Then I ran it through my laminator so that I could wipe it off easily and not ruin it. Once it was laminated I cut my chalkboard vinyl rectangle and carefully stuck it right on there! Then I hung it on my fridge and now I have a pretty menu display that works for us! I love how this project turned out,and I love even more how well it matches my kitchen! I am dreaming up new ways to incorporate this beautiful kit into my kitchen,I will be sure to share when I do! You can find Aimee’s kit HERE And you can find the chalkboard vinyl HERE.

Whats with the drugs in the corner of the pic???? This project must have givin you a headache! I can relate :) I have apples in my kitchen, although I'm trying to change it to a bar/pool hall theme (husband doesn't like the idea) anyways if the country apples/fruit theme wins out maybe I'll make some (out of coffee cans and this wall border junk I'm not going to use) for above my cabinets.

  • Avatar moe520_71104 Do you think those 3D ceramic fruit kitchen wall plaques would look nice on wood panel walls or?

    Is this type of decor "outdated" or old fashioned? I have a fruits & wine themed kitchen and think some of these would add a nice touch.

    • It is your kitchen, I say go for it. Just dont over do it. Do the colors complement each other? How large are the plaques? The best thing is to try it and see. Use a temporary means of attaching them, then stand back.

  • Avatar moe520_71104 Any ideas where I can find cute decorative wall decor for a fruit &wine themed kitchen?

    I have wood panel walls and hard wood flooring and I currently have a Tuscany and fruit type theme. Do you think some of those nice ceramic fruit plaques would look good or is that too outdated?

    • Depends on the plates. If you use the right plate hanger (maybe a vertical one that holds three or so plates) you should do ok. Just be sure the plates aren't cheap looking.
