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.
Perfect idea for holiday house. children would love it too. Painting like a tree trunk is a brilliant idea! Cob house must-haves: reading and meditation nooks (I'd totally paint this like a tree - so you can feel like you're climbing into the trunk :)
