So I'm one of those peeps who feels so sorry for blank spaces...doors...cupboards, most peoples walls.  All that space sitting there...boring and dull, just waiting to be made more interesting.  So when I found a full set of vinyl stickers in circles, rings and spirals for 4 bucks at VV, I snatched them up, knowing I would put them some where.  I have a small collection of vinyl stickers, and I thought I would just put them in that pile, but it turns out, the light blue, green and browns of the new stickers went nice with the kitchen.  So...one day while the Hub was away (some time timing is everything Grin) I stickered up our kitchen Grin


Under my kitchen sink which is under the window.


This is what I did to my dishwasher, which is to the left of the sink.  I am not fond of white, but I like it as a backdrop to the tiny flowers.  The flowers are from the ever wonderfull BirdBones.  I think they loot like they are little water sprites that should live in Spirited Away.  The skull stickers I bought clearance at Michael's a few years ago.  4 to a sheet and I have black, grey, and orange.  I think they are super cute, and the Hub doesn't mind them too much because they are skulls.  They came with cross bone stickers, which I cut up and made them into ears and such.


The corner cabnit, above stove, and floor cabnits to the right of the stove.  I think I like the last lay out the best of all the cabnits.


And the draw to our oven.  BirdBones gave me the large flowers too, and I was going to put them on the dishwasher, but I love them on the black stove.  I toughened them up a bit by the skulls and using the spare bones for a medalion in the center of the largest flower.


And, just so it wouldn't feel left out, a skull sticker in grey for the micro.  And oh look...you can meet my elbows as well Grin

My Hub has been very nice about the changes.  He does think it looks a bit busy, but I like busy I guess.  It makes me happy and he is indifferent, so everyone wins Grin

Thanks for looking Grin

That looks like fun. Putting them over the door handles must have been quite difficult but you did a very neat job.

Thanks.  I took the knobs off to put the stickers there.  Just had to make sure and poke a hole through the sticker before putting the screw back through.  I did tear a tiny section of one because I tried to force it through.

Oh, I knew you'd find a use for the flower stickers! When I saw them, I immediately tought of you, even though they looked kind of "normal" Grin
I like the color combination and the placing of the stickers- and getting it to look more "surreal" by combining it with skulls is just lovely Grin

I love the swirls! And I love how you made the stickers your own too by cutting them up Smiley

These spiral stickers look too cute. It is great to see you are adding so much fun and color to your space. These stickers will lift up the mood of the room making it more peppy and enjoyable. Keep up the Good work and thanks for sharing so many pictures. Now even I have started looking around for blank spaces.

I can't help you there as I got mine at Value Village.  And I don't have the paper insert any more.  But I do remeber they were for a baby's room, so maybe Babies-R-Us or some such?  But I did just google a bit for you and there a lot of vinal sticker shops on line.

I don't know if they sell them any more, but I got the bacon pennant at Archie McPhee's several years ago

And thanks for all the nice comments folks.  My HUb is not as fond of it all as I am.  So it's nice to get a few thumbs up on it Grin
