A Touch of Red

I've had a chalkboard in my kitchen for years. I love it and we write all sorts of things on it. Everything from Bible verses to grocery lists. It was painted with an off-white crackle finish and I decided to freshen it up with a little red paint.

It stands out now against the pale yellow of the wall.
