I had a few days off and decided that I wanted to craft something, but I was tired and after getting some much needed sleep, I found a quick and super easy idea for my very ugly kitchen.  I'm renting a very tiny apartment, one in which I am not allowed to paint or change much.  I'm technically not even allowed to put nails in the walls.  Anyhow, this is a simple project that I did in about thirty minutes Smiley

I had old magazines, and plain white cabinets.  [I do not have before photos, but you're not missing much Smiley]  I thought, why not add some color?  So I took some neat seasons themed pictures from these magazines, tacked them to my cabinet doors (I used rolled up tape strips but only because I didn't have sticky tack.  I recommend sticky tack).  I just put them up in a paneling effect, making sure the edges matched up Smiley  Voila!  Instant, free, quick decorating and color for a very bland kitchen!

Great if you're like me in a place where you may feel as if you can't change much up.  Enjoy!

Good idea! If you wanted to, you could make them slightly more permanent and a bit more steam-and-grease-proof by cutting pieces of poster board to size, rubber-cementing the pictures onto them, and then laminating them. Those Command strips that 3M makes (the kind you use to stick plastic hooks and things onto the walls) are fairly humidity-resistant and are designed to come off pretty cleanly when it's time to take them down. I use them to hold up laminated posters in my classroom, which tends to get pretty humid when the air conditioner breaks down (a regular occurrence between May and September).
