Wall of Fame

Recently we revamped our wall in the kitchen where we’ve created a hearth room effect instead of having a kitchen table. I took our certificates that we earned at cooking schools while in France and a couple of menus, bought frames for them and did my own “ready-made” framing job. We tried a few different wall colors from Benjamin Moore, but couldn’t quite find the right shade. I got some samples from Lowe’s and we ended up with Del Coronado Amber from the National Trust Collection of paints.

It’s known as our “Wall of Fame” because we have certificates from the Cordon Bleu in Paris, and Sylvie Lallemand’s Provençal cooking school in Gordes where we went several times. It also includes an autographed menu from Paul Bocuse, and another menu from one of our favorite restaurants, Le Cep, in the Beaujolais wine region.

Here is the wall in before and after mode.

Ah Ha isn’t that funny, I have the almost identical color in my kitchen!
