I forgot to share some of my favorite details yesterday when I posted about my little kitchen. Although very minor, they make the space feel a little more special and a little more me.
(A detail of my chalkboard in good use. Transporting me somewhere in the middle of summer. A can of chalkboard paint will only run you around $10, and I bought mine at JoAnn's with a 40% off coupon. For just over $5 it's provided lots of happiness.)
(White chalk is the color of choice around here, but when I'm out, pink will have to do.)
(Lining the inside of cabinets is a great way to add color to a space that needs a little pop. In my case, I wanted to change the cabinets in the only way possible. Although the tie-dye is a bit over the top, it works since I adopted a more is more attitude in the space.)
(Love the way it looks with my favorite Anthropologie bowls. The mug is from Anthro too.)
(I posted a few helpful tidbits inside my cabinets. Facts such as conversion charts for cooking measurements and a proper place-setting diagram could all be googled in a minute or two, but having this information handy has proved useful. And it makes me feel so very Martha Stewart.)
(Just incase you were curious.)
Thanks for stopping by! See you tomorrow!
UPDATE: A reader brought it to my attention that I didn't explain how I did the lined cabinets. I used fabric and Tacky glue, a small dot in all four corners (since I'm renting and didn't want to do permanent damage). I found the fabric at an estate sale for about $5 and it was enough to do all cabinets. Very easy!
Paper works well too! Check out the second image in this post for another beautiful example: http://athousandlaughingstarfish.blogspot.com/2010/10/quadrille.html
I would love to see pictures if anyone tries it! You can send them to email@example.com. Can't wait to see your work :)
