Once upon a time my friend Yvonne at My Halal Kitchen wrote a post called “Brighten Up Your Kitchen” that included a giveaway for some very cute pink shelf liner. I entered of course, because living in a home chock full of testosterone I need as much pink in my life as I can get. And I won! I had taken some great pictures of my lazy susan and the carnage that inhabited it.
Did I mention my lazy susan interior is a shade of 1970′s mushroom orange. Ew.
I seem to accumulate a lot of things in the kitchen. Don’t get me wrong I use them I just don’t have much patience for keeping things straight and tidy. So today I decided I’d share my little project. I pulled up my picture files and somehow the complete step by step pictures of the project have been eaten. They were no where to be found! Go figure, my one shot at being “sort of” crafty and I lose the proof. I ran upstairs and snapped a few pictures, as I’ve mostly kept it in good shape.
I warned you that it was a really ugly orange. Hideous isn’t it? If we weren’t living in a rental home I would have torn it out months ago.
See now isn’t that better?
I have intentions of lining my shelves with this cute paper too, I just haven’t gotten to taking out everything to do it. Here’s a big virtual hug to Yvonne for helping me “girl-up” my kitchen!!!
But wait there’s more!
