Mini Kitchen Makeover Reveal!

March 4, 2013

Recently I decided that I wanted to give our kitchen a “mini makeover” by adding subway tile back splash and a new chandelier. We live in a rental like most New Yorkers, but our building allows us to personalize our place. We can only do so much in our tiny studio apartment, and I am pretty sure I have spruced up all I can without changing our furniture. I love this little apartment of ours and how everything turned out…

We followed this youtube tutorial here on how to lay subway tile. We used all the supplies suggested in the video. Husband surprised me with how much he really got into the project. He did a better job than me making sure everything was perfect, I loved it!

We also had a beautiful new chandelier to hang that my mom got us for Christmas (thanks Mom!). It is a great chandelier but each little ball had to be hung individually so that took some time. But it was well worth it! Just these two new things made our kitchen feel so much nicer…

    I love the milk jug measuring cups! Such a beautiful kitchen…great job! I never thought about a small chandelier in the kitchen. We are getting a new kitchen table for our anniversary and maybe I can get a new light to go above!

    Wait wait, you cut the tiles yourself? that’s more DIY than I could take! 😉 p.s. I think you need a red wall in there or something! 😉

    love it! Looks great, impressive job on the tiles. Love the milk jug measuring cups AND your uggs! I live in mine….boots for outside, and slippers inside, never have to put socks on!

    It looks absolutely beautiful. Your space inspires me for my own tiny apartment in DC. I love the details but also that you don’t fill up the space with unnecessary things. You live modestly but beautifully, and I greatly respect that!
