I live in an apartment building in quite a dense neighborhood. One evening, when looking out my window, I realized I can see evert pixel of my neigbors washing machines driers, kitchens and showers if in the wrong side of the house (The photo attached is just an illustration, my camera just caught patches of light)
This means that all those 200 eyes of my neighbors see all my stuff too.
Our entryway had cheap, old, ugly paneling which made for a unpleasant entry into the house. Rather than tear it out and replace it, I covered the walls with vintage dictionary pages. See the before, during and after in the blog post.
I'am a RENTER and as a renter you are limited to your choices and Home Decor. I rent this townhouse and the owner came in and put in new counter tops and it left the kitchen half new &
half old and I needed a pop of color. So I went online for a solution and I found several DIY for renter's backsplash. Saw the pictures and read the instructions and set off to find the following supplies: Table Placemats, and way to hold them in place, which I chose doublesided tape so it would be easy to remove without damaging the walls and a pair scissors. Since my kitchen is a small area I purchased 10 Benson Mills Bamboo Placement for a $1.00 each from Big Lots(I only used 8). Proceeded to apply double sided tape to placemats (make sure walls are clean) and put the mats in place on the wall. Here is my finished product. There was 1 inch gap between the cabinets. So I filled in the space with a cut down(cut to fit) version of the placemat. So far its working......
After posting my kitchen tour, many people have asked what paint I used on the cabinets! I'm so happy many of you liked them. I used Sherwin Williams Cashmere paint. I blogged about all of the details.
