Brightening the kitchen - Part 2

Hello all. How are you? I hope you've been enjoying the long weekends. Only a couple more weeks and then there's another. That's what I've been telling myself back at work today. I had a wedding filled weekend this time. I must admit that I thoroughly enjoyed watching the royal wedding on Friday and Kate in her beautiful dress. On Saturday I went back home to Folkestone as my cousin got married. Thankfully the weather held out and everyone seemed to have a lovely time.

Anyways, this is something that I've been working on for some time. My fruit bowl. It was one that my mum had lying about and gave to me when I first moved out so I had a fruit bowl, but it's never been really my taste. And finally I got round to doing something about it. This is what it looked like when I started

And this is what it looks like now
Ta dah! I painted it all over in white paint (it needed a few coats to cover up it's original colours). I then covered the outside in 'orange' decoupage sheets. I'm really pleased with it and think it looks a lot brighter now.

I'm not sure what to do as my next project in the kitchen as I cant touch anything that was already here when we moved in. I cant wait until I have my own place one day and I don't have to worry about that, but as long as I'm renting and David is watching over me, I'll be constrained!

I hope you are all well.

Take care,
Kirstin xx
