A Chalkboard Wall and a Dresser in the Kitchen? It Really Works Here!

Ali and Dustin’s Denver kitchen is full of surprises! For starters there’s the chalkboard wall with the bike hanger, which makes for quite a dramatic entrance. But it’s the little rustic details around the space that really make it special.

“In our home, we wanted to bring that light, beachy feel [of California] back to Colorado,” said Ali in this interview with Apartment Therapy. To do that they incorporated a few rustic, salvaged details into their kitchen, like the driftwood and metal shelf (seen above) and a wooden dresser, which feels homey and provides much-needed extra storage.

The best part of the kitchen — and the couple’s proudest DIY — are the shelves built above the sink to fit into an empty (and awkward) space between the cabinets. As Ali says, “It was a simple project, but really helped give the space the feeling we wanted—it added a nice texture and finish.”
