After mulling the idea over for a few weeks, Farmer Joe has decided that a blackboard would be a useful addition to the kitchen (my farmer always rates decorating suggestions on practicality). Hunting for inspiration I've discovered some surprisingly stylish blackboard options...
I love the casual elegance of this blackboard, and am now feeling inspired to display menus for future dinner parties (- though less sophisticated. Sadly, my culinary capacity does not extend to sauteed sole with brown butter hollandaise).
The scale of this blackboard turns it into a practical piece of art.

Chalkboard paint on cabinetry is a quirky way to resurrect old furniture.

But this is perfect for us! Simple and understated. I even love the quote. This particular blackboard is from Pottery Barn (who do not ship to Australia). Tip: I have found nice blackboards hard to source and discovered I could make it myself from masonite sheeting and chalkboard paint. However, it turns out that my local framer does custom blackboards. Problem solved!
