(Warning: I went a little overboard on the pictures)
I don't post much about my kitchen because, well, it's ugly. And awkward. When you walk in the kitchen door from the driveway, this weird space meets you to the left.
So I cleared everything out. No pics of this...believe me, if my kitchen had been on Restauarant Impossible (you NEED to watch this show), we would have been shut down immediately. Some gross stuff going on behind that shelf.
I also took this opportunity to re-organize that cabinet to the right. It was holding all of my seasonal serving things.
painted console, and it turned out to be the perfect place!!
Now all of the dog/cat things that I want hidden can have a nice home in the cabinet. Can you tell I have a dog with some major allergy issues (hence the "special" shampoos, "special" food, entire basket of meds, etc...).
I used this color that you might remember from my mailbox...I'm all about using what you have!
I wanted to add some sophistication to it, so I decided on this wallpaper that I picked up at Goodwill several months ago.
I just cut the paper to size and sprayed the back with adhesive. It was super easy. Then I brought it back in and put my cookbooks and accessories back up. You might have noticed that my pottery is gone, but it has a new home. Look for a post on that soon! I also sprayed the cat/dog food containers with copper paint to coordinate with my thrift store cannisters.
"Thrifted Thursday" post on them... I think they are great here! Here's a closer look of the shelves.
quatrefoil tray to hold keys or a phone.
PS, every time I look at those stripes I can't help but think about one of my favorite rockers, Nikki Sixx:
Anyone else? No? Just me? Ok...carry on...
I'll see you tomorrow for "Thrifted Thursday"!!
