Toaster improvement DIY

We have this old toaster. My husbands from before we even met. Everyday I look at it and want to throw it out but it still works. Crumbles falls out and it’s ugly but sometimes I get this voice in my head.
-No Isabelle – you can’t just throw things out because they are ugly. Think about the environment, think about the money you can spend better.
But it still annoys me  – I want to have good looking stuff around me.
Now I kind of found a solution to my problem.

I took some adhesive foil and let Della draw on the back.
Cut it out and simply posted it on the toaster.
Finally the damn thing makes me happy!

Den blev ju superfin! borde göra samma sak med vår urfula brödrost, men än så länge får den vara förpassad in i ett mörkt skåp och se ful ut där i mörkret…

COOL embellishment. Now it looks like it just have jumped out of the CartoonNetwork. Haha.
Great lifestyle you have. You enhance so many things in your show and at home.
I learned a lot of tricks from you (though i don’t understand Swedish, but the show is internationally understandable).

Verkligen en skön idé! Synd att slänga bort något som fortfarande fungerar, bättre då att göra det lite mera ofult!

Våran börjar också bli lite läskig, undrar vad som skulle göra sig mot “silverfärgad” rostis?! Hm.
