Do-it-yourself Kitchen Decor

I was tired of looking at unpainted kitchen walls between my cabinets and the counters. So, I decided to get creative! If you look in this picture of donuts, you can see the newspaper hanging on the wall behind them.

Hmm…I just realized that I never did write a post about the different donuts I made for Chanukah! (Well, that will have to come later!) The newspaper is there because I was tired of losing things in the gap between the back of the counter and the wall. When your house is not square, you get things like that.

Now, there is something else there and it looks (I think) much prettier. It actually isn’t quite done. I want to add bows at the outlets, but here it is so far. It is just temporary and is stapled in some places and glued in others. The lights add ambiance. I have always loved having colored lights strung in my house.

These photos go from right to left across my kitchen. I was thrifty. I used the denim material from a dress that a mouse had eaten a hole in and a skirt that also had a hole. Both holes were in places you could not really patch. The plaid came from two pairs of flannel pajama bottoms. The bows will come from the string ties on the pj’s.

It was fun. It was challenging. I like it…for now.

    Colored lights always make me smile as well. And with the newspaper, I think you were just multi-tasking: reading and working in the kitchen at the same time.
