The 100 bucks of kitchen upgrade
In my mother in laws vacation home up in the north of Sweden
(yes, Dalarna where I have been blogging from these past weeks) nothing and I mean nothing has
been done since the 70′.
This could be a great thing or it could be plain ugly.
In this case I must go for the latter.
We havn’t made up our minds for the past years.
This year I simply couldn’t stand the brown, dirty- feeling of a kitchen
so I put in 2 days of work and about 800 kronor (100 dollares) worth of material.
The result you can see below.
I painted the cabinets in one of my favourite colors. Alcro Ad Isglass.
It has this 50′ feel about it. Not blue, not green, not grey but like beautiful eyes -all of them together.
The other walls got my favourite shade of pink. A dirty kind of pink.
Matchable with every color I like. A true beauty!
On top of the old vinyl flooring which was used as protection from the water (stänkskydd), I simply
attached dotted oil cloth (oh chocking – oil cloth an dots! Very inventive Isabelle).
I just used some white small nails to attach it which blended with the dots.
Then I ran around the house for some odd paintings and a beautiful mirror.
I still have to find a good carpet to cover up the ugly vinyl flooring.
One of the paintings my kids cousin made.
A stencil from this photo. He is 13 and was testing stuff out. I love it.
