Friends, I am stuck in kitchen limbo. I am just not sure what to do. You may remember my washi tape treatment. Well, at some point last week I took most of it down. It was just starting to feel too dorm-decory.
Obviously it would help if I cleaned up the dishes… I left the red tape on because the doors are old and crappy and slightly disintegrating in places. Also, the white is peeling.
I am stuck in this kitchen limbo in a few ways. If I could do what I really wanted, I would probably paint the upper cabinets white and the lower ones a darker color. I would also probably paint a nice color backsplash between the upper and lower cabinets. (Remember this DIY project?). Unfortunately, I CANNOT PAINT anything in this house.
I have a few ideas- 1. Find a way to attach some type of panel to the doors. 2. Washi tape the wood underneath the (ugly) white doors. A mint green peak-a-boo could be fun for a little while. 3. Some type of sectional colorful artwork panels for a makeshift backsplash? 4. Present the landlords with a mock up of what I plan to paint and see if I can get their consent? (Doubtful). 5. Build some type of countertop cover that is either a nice shiny wood/teal/red/tiled?
Here are a photos of what else is happening in my kitchen:
Seriously friends! Any suggestions? I think I would like to keep with the red/light teal/black and white theme. I’d love to hear ideas for DIY projects to help me get out of this kitchen limbo!
