We painted a big black rectangle on the kitchen wall with blackboard paint which for some unknown reason amused the kids to the point of hysterical giggles.
I had nothing to do with the cutting of the picture rail other than holding the "non-being cut end", but found that varnishing it was ridiculously therapeutic.
The lovely blackboard fairies put it all together when I wasn't looking so I don't have any photos of this stage, but the next thing I know VOILA :
Look at how lovely it looks!
And an action shot:
The recipes are for homemade naan bread and rice pudding ; )
