Friday

wink




When i photographed my baking session the other day I realized i hadn't shown you the new things that has happened in out kitchen!

When our oven broke earlier this year we decided to change the decorations on our cabinets. So i took down the old, colorful decorations (you can see them here) and went for something simpler: just one little winking face on one cabinet front. The open eye is the new grip: we drilled big holes in the fronts of both the lower cabinets and drawers. So simple -i like the new look a lot. Especially since we have moved the dinner table to the kitchen and the room needed a cleaner look to feel less crowded.

A few DIY home improvement notes though: It was easy enough to remove the self-adhesive folio from the fronts -Except for the orange folio! for some reason the orange folio would not be removed without ruining the paint! so we had to buy one new front for a cabinet (ikea luckily) :( Also you need to use a really good drill for those grip holes - i think ours was a little too used and a little crooked :) Well well, its all a part of being a hopeless DIY-home-improver!

▶ Everyone: Moomin pants and coffee breaks for everyone! And a few more notes on baking: You can't really taste the apples, it just makes the bread more moist and the glass of water in the hot oven makes the crust crispy! The hate think is mostly about hating to clean up afterwards and hating when you realize you have run out of bread ;)

Cute winking face, I'd love that in my kitchen.
The holes in the doors are a brilliant, simple solution.
I may have to remember that.

Så fint! En go idé er at klemme fast dörrene mod et stykke trä når i borrer, så flosser bagsiden ikke da borren går igennem. Men det gjorde I måske allereden!

Synes bestemt også det er nogle fine døre du har fået dekoreret og tænkte derfor på hvilket materiale du bruger til at lave ansigterne?
