Aw, it is sad to see this com so empty these days.

I've got a room to share, though! A little kitchen nook.

a little more butter lemon yellow irl than in this picture




I finally!! moved into a house here in Portland that I feel like is MINE to do with what I want. I've been subletting for two years since moving here :/ I still live with roomies, but we are all equal partners in this...but at the same time, they are not big nesters, so the decor is up to me.

Challenges:
1. I'm BROKE. A lot of things belong to roomies or things I've found in free boxes.
2. I don't have a lot of things....so i'm relying on what I've got.
3. Mish-mash. Finding ways to mix everyone's different things together in a pleasing way.

The paint was found in a free box! Yay! Free paint...and not a horrible color. It doesn't really match the wood paneling or the table, but I think somehow, it works?

The shelf is a bit weird looking with the huge dollar tree brackets in white and the weirdly cut freebox piece of wood, but I plan on putting a bunch of hooks on the underside and using it as pan storage, hopefully covering the weird brackets.

The unfortunate window ...dowel. Haha. Someday I'll buy a REAL rod, but today or anytime soon is not that day.

I think it looks pretty nice despite the fact that it is a mish-mash of make do and free items.

Thanks for looking!

you could just paint the dowel with some white or black paint if you can find some. Heck some acrylic paint from your favorite big box store would work and put some pretty ends on it. I saw it on Pinterest the other day. Cute idea and cheap too. It's lovely.
