Five Second Kitchen Refresh!

The other night as B was putting some finishing touches on our newly painted living room, I was in the kitchen cleaning up when my eyes once again fell on these sad ugly details on our kitchen backsplash.

The kitchen is seriously outdated, and part of me feels like these stupid accents are a huge part of that. So, as I was cleaning the other day, for the first time in the 6 months we've lived here, I realized there were NO grout lines around these snazzy little works of art. That was when I realized this could only mean one thing - they are not TILES... they must be something stuck on top of the tile. On closer inspection, I was pleased to discover they were stickers! What made me even more excited - they were super easy to peel off!!

Okay, I'll be honest... I look at this picture and I'm beyond embarrassed that I didn't realize they were stickers... LOOK AT THEM - they don't even line up! Especially that one on the left!  I guess they were so ugly that most of the time I just tried to pretend that they weren't there.

Anyway - since I was so excited that I could finally rid my kitchen of them forever, I went to town...

EW! Look at that vent... actually, on second thought - DON'T! It's gross and I can't wait until we redo the kitchen.... which of course won't be for another few years...

After they were off, a little wipe down and "voila!" - no more ugly stickers.

I must admit - the kitchen still has a long way to go, but I can't even begin to express how happy I am that these little babies are finally gone. I only wish I had realized sooner that they were stickers... I would've removed them the day we moved in!

  1. Hhahah that is hilarious. Those stickers are pretty fugly!

    My hood vent is probably more grity than yours, I haven't had a chance to clean it since I moved in... it's on my to-do list, lol.

    I haven't seen your kitchen but by the way you curdle when you talk about it, I can only assume it is... not very nice! You should totally enter this reno contest:

    I came across it this morning and entered my fug basement.
