Ongoing Progress of Rental Kitchen

I have been very busy as of late but that hasn’t stopped me from the ongoing progress of my rental kitchen. I have been playing hostess with the mostess and working up a storm at my seasonal job. I have also started an internship *doing the blog* for a retail/wholesale company. Basically, I am very tired and looking forward to the calm of January.

You may remember how I purchased 4 rolls of Chalkboard contact paper only to use fabric to cover my cabinets.  On a rare day off today I did all the normal things: clean, internet, relax. I stayed in bed until well past noon. Somehow (I thank coffee) I got a burst of energy and actually did a little project. By now you are probably very familar with my gripes about my rental kitchen. Today I used some of that chalkboard contact paper to cover up part of the counter. I was inspired by something I saw about fake granite counter tops…

This is my (very dirty) counter before:

I took everything off the counter and gave it a good scrub. It took two tries with two pieces of contact paper but here you have it:

Voila! Not perfect but finally found a use for some of that contact paper!

Not the worst little rental kitchen!

It is my ongoing progress of rental kitchen. If money were no object I would rip it all out and redo it but my small budget and lease agreements prohibit that. However, I am happy with my creative solutions (temporarily)… I wish I had more but I have been incredibly busy! Hope you all are having a lovely holiday season!
