Kitsch in the Kitchen
With another ugly space to disguise - It was chicken wire and fake foliage to the rescue again. Watch how I create a flower wall in my kitchen!
A very ugly space I think you'll agree. Don't yet have a budget for a full kitchen makeover. I do however have chicken wire and fake flowers to make something pretty to look at until I win the Lottery.
Out with the chicken wire- which can be cut with sharp kitchen scissors. Mind the spiky edges! I tacked the wire onto the wall with U staples.
I clipped the stalks off the fake flowers leaving just an inch or two to attach to chicken wire.
I cut the bit next to the mirror off at the end as the balance looked off to me.
The large leaves filled in the gaps quickly. I get 12 on Ebay for £1.45
Here is the detail close up. How pretty?
I am done for now but I may well add fairy lights later on. Now it's not such an ugly space after all! I Hope you like it.
- Chicken wire (Screwfix £10 for 10 metre roll)
- U staples (poundshop)
- Fake Flowers and leaves (Ebay (from 10p each))

Samantha Blake Corl Ventura on Oct 13, 2017I have a Huge mirror in my bathroom that is kinda funked up at the top. This idea of yoirs for your ugly space is an outstanding idea!! I can't wait. (I was thinking of a frame or hanging fake potted plants, this combines the two for me!). Thanks! I will try to remember to take some pictures.
