It feels like the week has just flown by again. It was possibly helped with the lovely long weekend we had. Unfortunately, I haven’t attended to dot dot dash and much as I would have like to this week, but as I said last week, life gets in the way sometimes.
Let’s make an entrance…
FINALLY! All the hard work over the past several weeks is really starting to show! As I’ve mentioned a few times, we’ve been trying to give own flat some much-needed love without breaking the bank.
We bought our first flat a few years ago so that we could get on the property ladder. Our hope was to do very little to it, but over the last year or so we’ve really started to lack in storage and our kitchen was needing a little bit of love.
So a white kitchen, “not so bad, just a little messy” you might say, but we were desperately needing more storage. Our IKEA floating shelves weren’t long enough, and more Ikea hacking to hold our microwave and bins. The stove top/hob had already been replaced before we took photos, but you can only imagine!
Lastly, the timber effect backsplash that runs along the whole kitchen was not useful / not high enough causing some of our favorite meals to start staining the white wall behind.
