Kitchen Cupboard Art Decal (Dollar Store!) Makeover

Theres a bee in my kitchen!

Actually its just a decal. No worries. I mean for me you know how I feel about bees.

*shudder*

I seriously considered leaving that bee out of the picture, by the way. I decided that since it had a smile on its face I would leave it. But if it hadnt

So I decided to join in on this weeks Tackle It Tuesday at 5 Minutes for Mom! Ive never done this before and have been intimidated when it comes to joining this talented group of women. But I decided today was the day. I may not have tackled our storage unit

closet on our apartment deck yet, but thats okay. Another time. When my husband is around to lift those book boxes (yes, Im a book hoarder)

Anyway. 😉

Today I want to share my successful drab, boring white cupboards into a lovely garden-themed kitchen* makeover. 😉 It was fun! And cheap! So cheap. Im rather proud of the cheapness. lol That sounds weird. I mean Im glad it was an inexpensive makeover. 🙂

First let me explain. More. lol I live in an apartment. If youve ever lived in one yourself, youve felt the keen pain inside as you stare at the poorly painted cupboards cupboards that you cant even repaint because theyre not really yours. Anyway, I decided to do something about it.

First, I went to the dollar store and found these cute decals.

These are two-sided, and yes just one dollar!

I asked. Kidding. 😉

This is what you see when you walk from the living room to the kitchen it used to be a boring blank that drove me kind of crazy because your eye is drawn to it due to its size. Kind of tacky.

But no more!


After that success, I decided to draw the kitchen cupboards into the theme.

Nothing too special, but it does brighten up the place. 🙂
