Awhile back I found the cutest idea on the French Nest Blog and I knew I had to make one for myself. I found this old silver plated tray at the thrift store for $5 and painted the center with chalkboard paint that I bought at Michaels. I just used a ribbon I already had but I'm on the lookout for something I like better.I'm thinking about getting the rub on letters for across the top to read ~Menu~
This is the first time I've put a picture of my 1960's kitchen on my blog. It's so ugly that I can't believe I'm actually posting pictures of it. The cabinets and the walls are painted an ugly beige color. The paint on the cabinets is scratching off. She hired a cheap painter before I moved in and he didn't know what he was doing. If you run a fingernail down the walls, the paint will scrape off. My landlord said I can repaint it but I know it's a huge job because I would have to sand everything, even the walls and ceiling so I'm a little scared to start it. I would like to paint the cabinets a fresh white but not pure white and the walls I'm thinking of blue, but I'm not sure what shade of blue yet. The hood over the stove was avocado green when I moved in. My landlord said she would replace it but never did so I used some silver Rub N Buff paint on it. It looks better than it did but I only did the outside of it, the inside is still green. This is the worst part of renting...being stuck with things that you don't like and putting money and time into someone else's property. I plan on staying here awhile so I probably will end up painting it.
