I made: Rental kitchen cabinets makeover

Hi everybody! I wanted to share this DIY project with you today. This is for all of you who are trying to make the best out of your rental places without investing too much money in it.
I hated my cabinets from the moment I first layed my eyes on them. They were old and broken and looked tired overall. Painting them over wouldn’t probably helped me out there. Also my kichen is very dark so I wanted something to reflect the light a little better. The outcome isn’t perfect and I need to do some bits over, but I was really exited to share the idea with you right away. Cuz it’s so simple and fun.
Also forgive me for the pictures are odd looking dark and low quality. I took the pictures during day time, I tried with and without the flash, with and without the lamp. Nothing really worked well enough, but here they are anyway.

I printed out a bunch of recepies, attached them onto the cabinet doors with a glue stick and covered them all over with a clear sticker, the one you can use to cover up your notebooks and books for school usually. Can somebody help me out and say how do you really call this thing in english? Do you have a special word? I think it cost me about 4 euros in total and had some extra even left over.

Before and after

This is what was going on in the bedroom before, nice lamp, yeah, but really truly too green for our room. I know you can tell too much from the picture, but trust my words.
Getting it down was much harder than I expected. It took me time and effort, but I did it on my own and couldnt be more proud :D.

And this is what we have now, big white fluffy ball, made with my own little hands. To me it just looks so much cozier. You can check more about the making from here.

Paper lampshade makeover

This project has been sitting in the drawer for too long, so I finally got around and made it happen today.
I had alot of cupcake liners prepared, 400 to be exact, but I needed less than half of them.

I’m still little bit worried about the craft glue, not sure if it would be enough to hold the liners attached to the shade, but let’s hope for the best. I promise I’ll let you know when it starts raining cupcake holders in my bedroom.

Your shade might get naughty and try to run away in the process. You going to have to keep it on the leash. There are different opportunities. For example you could hung it with a string or put it in a bowl, I just used four tea candle holders to keep the shade from moving.

Letting the glue dry forΒ  little bit before I actually put the shade up. Here it is sitting on another paperlamp.

Simple DIY project, wonderful outcome, nice end to the week – going to have sweet sweet dreams today.

Flashback to our trip.

Light in the tunnel

I wasn’t planning on writing about any of it here, but I’m just too excited and want to share it with all the world.
The thing is me and my boyfriend have been trying toΒ  get a chance to live together for a while now. And if I say for a while I mean about a year or even a little bit more. The problem is there has been thousends of kilometers, about 10 countries and billion piles of useless paperwork between us. And today I woke up in the morning sun shining in and a text on my phone saying: “Honey, I got the visa, I’m coming!” You can only imagine how this made me feel. Finally, a light shining at the end of the dark dark tunnel. And I continued the day with a victory dance and I keep on doing that. Whoop-whoop! πŸ˜€
