Retro-Modern Living Room & Kitchen Makeover

November 16, 2011 |  by  |  Before & After, Blog, DIY, Home & Decor

We already moved in in June and I only now got the time to post our living room/kitchen makeover !

The lovely Kate Pruitt from Design Sponge asked me, if I have more rooms to renovate in the future…. Well, yes, I will definitely renovate more rooms in the future, in the near future!

Our living room is also the kitchen, which makes it the main ‘hang-out spot’ in our place. Usually everything happens in the kitchen, how perfect to have two comfy armchairs in the same room then!

The frame was a golden mirror before, I painted it white and the mirror with chalk board paint.

  3. I love this room – my favourite thing is the shelf with the jars on top and underneath, attached by the lids. Oh, but I love the twig rolling pin holder too.
    Good luck with your move – how exciting!
