Tiny Cozy Kitchen and Dining

cozy-small-kitchen


I found this small kitchen to be so unique so I wanted to share it with you guys.  I ran into it in one of Ikea’s new websites Ikea Family Live which feature a new design idea every week.

Notice the chalkboard on the wall.  I’d love to have that somewhere in my apartment to write notes, brainstorm, and set up reminders I can’t ignore. 🙂


Click over to their website to check out the rest of the pictures of this tiny cozy kitchen. The link opens in a new window.

Notice there is also a video tour you can check out of the place once you visit their site.  Let me know what you think!

    There's a paint available at any home center that makes any wall you paint it on into a chalk board. Or you could frame up a sanded and framed piece of plywood into one too. Depends on how big a chalk board you feel you need.

    Good call David. I have heard of that paint before but completely forgot it exists. Does anyone else have any experience with it?

    I've seen it in the stores and have watched tv shows where designers or homeowners have used it, no personal experience as yet. I'd be interested in hearing from someone who has had hands on with it myself. Barring that I'd see how it works on the easily removed variant first.

    I might go and get some start experimenting! I'd like to use it right on drywall…

    Go for it. Just remember, you live in an apartment and management might get a tad irked if you use the stuff on their walls. You might be able to find some scrap drywall at construction sites and if all else fails, some home centers sell more manageably sized pieces for those who want to do some patching.

    Good call… I'll try it on something else first and see how it goes. I'll let you know.

    As you experiment with this stuff, do a series of posts on it. I'm sure a lot of people would like to know how it does. How well it writes on, how well it holds up over time, etc. While I've had plenty of time the past 2 and a half years, I selfishly decided that eating was a little more important than playing with paint. Oh well, that's me, always thinking of myself. Anyway, let us know.
