I'm sharing with you guys what I did to my extremely large kitchen *insert sarcastic smile here*. Although it is small, I thought that it was very bland and extremely boring. So after a couple of hours on some DIY sites, this is what I came up with!!..PUT FABRIC ON THE WALL!!
This is an alternative to putting wallpaper on the wall or even painting. This is just an apartment, so I needed to do something that could be easily undone when it's time for us to move again.
Say hello to my small kitchen with the ancient appliances that is soooooo freaking dull! But we had to make the best out of this situation..LOL
|Notice the red and green papers on the fridge? Green is for GO- as in you can eat it, Red is for Hell No-as in don't even think about it..LOL|
It's very simple and the only supplies needed is:
-lightweight fabric ($10 via WalMart)
-Sta-Flo liquid starch ($3 via WalMart)
-bowl & sponge ( My Cabinets)
-Patient Honey who puts up with all of your random madness :o) (Friggin Priceless)
It's very simple!! Measure the wall then cut out the pieces that you will need to apply.
Before applying, wipe the wall with the liquid starch, apply fabric then smooth with the sponge. Apply more liquid starch on the fabric for a secure hold. My fabric stuck to the wall as soon as it was applied. YAY! :o)
So in no time you should be done, but for me I dragged this project for 2 days because 1. I ran out of fabric and 2. I was tired as hell!!
|Notice the Wood Stain that my Honey got on the cabinets,we're working on the dining room also, that project will be shown next!|
You can also see on the wall the 3 leaf thingamajigs that I found at Goodwill for $1.99 each. A coat of red paint and they were ready to be welcomed to the wall!
We're still not done, but just thought I would share the process. I haven't been into getting dressed up lately, only on Sunday for Church, but that's about it. I just wanna get my place feeling more like home, then i'll be more focused!! Anyways, Enjoy the pics and be BLESSED!!
