We have a kitchen that has seen many renovations over the years. Some of these renovations have been terrible, while others were great for their day but old and dated now. The countertop is old, warped, and in some places chipped. The cabinets themselves are a mix of 1970's wood and DIY nightmare from sometime prior to us purchasing the house.
I want to renovate the kitchen but finances and other priorities have prevented me from getting started. Those priorities do not prevent me from spend a few minutes and some cash to dress up the kitchen a bit. This past weekend was one of those days where everything just seemed to work out perfectly to do just that.
We went to Home Depot for from stain for another project and found a great deal on. There are these little 4 x4 acrylic stickers to go onto tiles to change the colour or to add some flash to dull white tiles. Normally these stickers run $3 or #4 a piece. This weekend they were $1. They also carry packs eight stickers that create a scene. While some of them are very pretty I'm not going to spend $40 a set. I will spend $10 on a set. So I picked up a nice looking country kitchen rooster, that just happens to match my kitchen clock.
The new look definitely perks the look of the kitchen up. We will still be renovating sometime in the future but for now the kitchen has a new look. If nothing else the brightness of the decorative stickers draws the eyes away from the cabinets and countertop.
