DIY: Sprucing up the kitchen

I've been on this crazy crafting spree for a while now. I think it's the lack of not constantly having to be somewhere and do something. Lemme just say, it's freaking awesome having to spare time to do whatever I please. I've ignored my kitchen like crazy and have been taking it one section at a time.

The place is small, I don't call it Little House for nothing, and the kitchen? Very tiny. Thankfully my landlord had a baker's rack for me to use so I could add stuff on it. Only problem was the wire type racks. Nothing would fit on there right so after getting so annoyed one day, I just cut up some foam boards and threw them on there. I couldn't leave it like that for long because it was just dull. That's where a little bit of fabric and my trusty friend Mod Podge came in hand.

Looks so much better!


There this thing in my genes (comes from my Padre's side of the family) where we hate seeing any wall bare so I wanted to add a little something-something above it. 



And now my little corner of the kitchen is complete! 


Things I learned by doing this:

a. I suck at cutting a straight line. 
b. An exacto type knife will hurt you.
c. Spray painting plastic frames is a pain in the rear. 

I've also decided to set up an etsy shop in the future and thought about doing a few different type wall art projects like I did with the cherries and fork. What's your opinion on them?

  1. That is really cool! You did a fantastic job. My kitchen is also super tiny! In fact, there isn't even a space to put something like that, but now I want to! I think you should totally set up an etsy page for those wall hangings. They would definitely go with any country theme. :) I think it might also be cool to do one with a wooden spoon. :)
