Kitchen Tour: Funky and Retro

1 Month
The kitchen is probably the smallest room in our house. I think this fact alone, had deterred many other tenants from renting it. Not me, I fell in love with it immediately. Yes it needed work, I mean a lot and plenty of more storage solutions options, but it still had so much potential!
Well the above picture is how it looked AFTER the makeover. I hope you'll keep reading and follow me on my kitchen tour!
Upcycled a colander
I added striped to the cabinets with contact paper.
The floor is actually wallpapered. You can check out my tutorial for this at the link below
I painted the trash can!

    Best, cutest small kitchen I've ever seen! Did you paint the washing machine yourself, too?
