This was our first apartment in Logan, Utah. 379 East 200 North. We were on the bottom right, $275 a month utilities included. Such good memories there…
This was the kitchen. I asked the owner if I could paint the cabinets and he said sure, so I bought a gallon of FLAT white paint off the shelf at Kmart, got a cheap brush, and just went to town and painted right over those bin pulls! Ahhhhh! I had no idea what crimes I was committing…
I did have the sense to save one of the crystal knobs that had broken off one of the doors that they were replacing with some cheap, ugly brass doorknobs (I wish I would have grabbed all of them!) In our home in Texas, I had displayed it like this.
I wanted to use it as part of our gallery wall in the entryway, so I took a small frame from the collection I’ve been gathering from thrifty finds…it was 50 cents.
I traced the frame on to the back of an old notebook and spray painted it yellow (same paint I used for the chairs)
Then I used a scrapbook paper quatrefoil design to put over it (this is the same paper Jen used in this project~she told me I could buy it at Michaels. It’s in a Martha Stewart craft paper pack)
And then hot glued (use a bunch) the doorknob right on:
So now, we have the memory of our 1st apartment, minus the horrible flat paint in the kitchen! Have you ever committed a diy crime when you were young and dumb (or old and wise??)
