When we first moved in to this little flat, I thought maybe I would paint something under the cabinets in the kitchen, which is just white wall space. Then I realized how long that would take, that I didn't have the energy, and that I would rather invest my time into something we can take when we leave this place.
I got an idea a while back to give our kitchen a little facelift using some thrifted plates as a faux backsplash. Since then, I have been scouring for pretty plates of all shapes and sizes, some thrifted, some store-bought. I finally accumulated enough this weekend to complete this project.
So here is our newly refreshed kitchen "backsplash." Sorry for the photo quality. I was just too lazy to get out my big girl camera. Too lazy to even move the dirty glasses from the kitchen counter, apparently.
It has definitely been a DIY kind of weekend. So much homemaking, so little time. Boy, do I love being home and being pseudo-crafty.
