Ok, I live in an apartment and, as people move out, they are completely renovating the places. We're going to be there for awhile still (like at least 4 years), and the landlords don't care if I paint (yay!), I just can't do mosaic on the walls or anything.
I want to start with my kitchen. It's ugly, old, and boring. I've been collecting red appliances, red kitchen linens, etc. I'm trying to think of a good color to paint the walls, and for some reason I thought of robin's egg blue. Do you think that would look good? I am not sure if I want to paint the cabinets (don't want to deal with the old screws and hinges), so do you have any ideas on how to fix them? Contact paper? I have a bunch of silver metallic contact paper. Below are (old) photos of the kitchen, back when it was clean and uncluttered. I really am digging the robin's egg blue idea, but as you can see we don't have a lot of exposed walls so I don't know if it will show up well. Besides, I was hoping to do a faux tin backdrop for the sink.
