DIY: demolition done for now

i've been wanting to renovate my little { very little } kitchen for a while now but i haven't had so much time for it. { no, i just haven't prioritised it! } but since my friends are coming over i had to do something about the mess... here are some pictures { i apologise for the picture quality... }

this is when i started my demolition project. damned! pretty rough uh?

now i'm getting there! i decided to paint everything white { it is antique white but my camera pictures it yellowish }, maybe still put mosaic on the walls, but not tonight!

the walls still need to be painted at least one time... { not to mention cleaning the windows.. oops! }


then i painted my bedroom walls too! they were dark red before, but not anymore.


i also framed some wallpaper and put the new deco to my living room wall.

also framed some prada...


and added some scented and dried flowers too...


and finally some new wallpaper. it the ones i love from PiP studio!! { i collect wallpaper samples }


it's been busy night! { little note here, i AM pretty proud of my one woman fix, and it didn't cost me much at all! }

Great work Tiina! Your kitchen looks good! Can't wait to see the mosaic... I also love the Designers Guild pillows that you bought in London;)

Enjoy your time with friends!

thank you sweet ladies for your words. it's not the and of the renovation, but i feel pleased for making the kitchen at least cookable :) small spaces done on very budget. i am on a process of wanting to sell my flat and buy a bigger one so little fix is needed!

I go away for a few days and you do ALL this?? Wow, you are amazing! Everything looks great. The kitchen - what a transformation! And I want all the pillows on your bed. (I think you and I share a London/UK obsession. I want your mugs too.) GREAT job, Tiina! xoxo, ALEK
