Kitchen AID!! MAKEOVER…

(Dansk version nederst)

Im getting attacked by thoughts and ideas!! Right now I am thinking about our future kitchen and how to do a complete makeover without spending a fortune!

Interiorwise

Interiorwise

We have to prioritize what is most important, and I know the fridge, the dishwasher and the cooker are probably working – so I can’t really argue that a change is a MUST to start withwhat to do?! 

THIS KITCHEN needs a hand (or ten), right??

My first thought is that the upper cabinets need to go, the weird half moon shelf needs to go, the fronts need paint and new handles, the floor, the walls, the ceiling needs either paint, tiles or wallpaper! The DOOR needs paint… hmm, and I would really love to change the cabinet under the sink and get an old industrial sink! AND what you can’t see from here is the fridge, the very white fridge … and it needs decoration (since we can’t afford a new)! so, I start off with the fridge and share some of my ideas 🙂

PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF HAVE ANY IDEAS FOR THIS KITCHEN!

Lets kick off the fridge (and washer) MAKEOVER!!! OH SO many possibilities! 😉

WALLPAPER!

STICKERS – removable wallpaper!

CHALKBOARD PAINT!

AND, KUDUs magic magnets 😉 

HOW to do it!

No worries, Its so easy to decorate your fridge! The only thing you have to make sure is that the surface is clean – a good idea is to make the surface a little rough with a piece of sandpaper. When using removable wallpaper always start in the corner and go slowly downwards to avoid bubbles! 😉 And if possible, don’t forget to remove the handle before getting into decor action!

Jeg bliver bombarderet af  få tanker og ideer !! Lige nu grubler jeg over, hvordan vores køkken skal se ud – hvordan kan vi laver en total makeover uden at bruge en formue! Vi er nødt til at prioritere, hvad der er vigtigst, og jeg ved udemærket, at både køleskab, opvaskemaskine og komfur formentlig virker fint – så jeg kan ikke rigtig argumentere for, at det er livsnødvendigt at skifte ud til at starte med … Så, hvad gør jeg ?! Det her køkken har brug for en hjælpende hånd (eller ti), ik sandt ??

Min første tanke er, at de over skabene må ud, den underlige runde hylde må ud, skabslågerne males og grebene skiftes ud, gulv, vægge, loft skal enten males, tapetseres eller måske skal der fliser op! Døren skriger efter maling… hmm, og jeg ville elske at skifte skabet under vasken og få en gammel industri vask! Og hvad du ikke kan se herfra, er køleskabet, det meget hvide køleskab … og det SKAL dekoreres (når nu vi ikke har råd til et nyt)! Så, lad os starte med køleskabet, her er billeder af nogle af mine tanker 🙂

Hvordan man gør det!

Ingen bekymringer, det er virkelig let at dekorere dit køleskab! Det eneste du skal sørge for er, at overfladen er ren – en god ide er, at gøre overfladen lidt ru med et stykke sandpapir. Når du dekorerer med “aftageligt” tapet skal du altid starte i hjørnet og gå langsomt nedad for at undgå bobler! 😉 Og hvis det er muligt, så glem ikke at fjerne håndtaget, før du kaster dig i lag med dit unikke køleskab!

LAD mig endelig vide, hvis du sidder og får en god ide eller tanke… jeg tager imod med kyshånd 🙂

PLEASE SHARE YOUR IDEAS AND THOUGHTS… for this kitchen!

SUPERFRONT meets IKEA and nails it!

ITS NOT HACKING, ITS ADDING – adding edge to IKEA´s really functional and affordable, but (sorry) sometimes a bit too mainstream furniture’s! One of my friends is going to redo her kitchen and in her search for a unique solution she felt over this fantastic site SUPERFRONT! Superfront is a Swedish company based on their collective knowledge of furniture design – If you ask me this company nails it! Im sure Im not exaggerating if I say almost every interiorblogger has been around IKEA hacking, striving to do something unique and cool out of their really nice and affordable stuff! This is exactly what this company is doing! As they say … we want to give you the possibility to create high quality furniture at a sensible price. We know, just as many others who are interested in design, that good taste is not synonymous with high prices. COULDNT AGREE MORE!

SUPERFRONT makes fronts, handles and legs for all of IKEA’s existing cabinet bases and offers 9 fronts, 8 handles, 8 legs and 14 different colors! And I must say they do an excellent job, its really cool! At the moment Superfront is deliverable of fronts for Pax wardrobes, kitchen doors and drawer fronts for Metod and Faktum kitchens and doors for Bestå sideboard and cabinet – and you can choose whatever color you may like from their color palette!

COOL KITCHENS!

… and OH G… they also do cool handles and check out their homepage for funky legs!

It takes so little and makes such a different! Here is your possibility to renew your existing IKEA home!

DENMARK people!!!

DET ER IKKE at hacke, men at tilføje – tilføje ´kant´ til IKEAs virkelig funktionelle og prisvenlige, men (undskyld) ofte lidt kedelige møbler! En af mine venner er igang med at renovere sit køkken og i hendes søgen efter en unik løsning, faldt hun over denne fantastiske hjemmeside SUPERFRONT! Superfront er en svensk virksomhed, der bygger på teamets kollektive viden om møbeldesign – og hvis du spørger mig har de virkelig ramt plet! Jeg er sikker, jeg ikke overdriver, hvis jeg siger, at enhver boligblogger har været omkring IKEA hacking og ivrigt stræbt efter at gøre noget unikt og cool ud af deres virkelig fine og meget prisvenlige ting! OG det er præcis, hvad Superfront gør! Som de siger … vi ønsker at give dig mulighed for at oprette kvalitetsmøbler til en fornuftig pris . Vi ved , ligesom mange andre, der er interesseret i design, at god smag ikke er ensbetydende med høje priser. Kunne ikke være mere enig! 😉

SUPERFRONT laver fronter, greb og ben til alle IKEAS basis skabe og tilbyder 9 forskellige fronter, 8 forskellige håndtag, 8 forskellige ben – OG 14 forskellige farver! Jeg må sige, de gør et fremragende stykke arbejde, det er virkelig cool! I øjeblikket leverer Superfront fronter til Pax garderobeskabe, køkkenlåger og skuffefronter til Metod og FAKTUM køkkener og døre til BESTÅ skænke og skabe – og du kan vælge præcis den farve, der passer dig ud fra derescolor palette!

Happy Birthday Bowl Margrethe!

DANISH DESIGN!

The Danish Margrethe bowl turns 60 years and it is still going strong! The bowl came into production already in 1950 but it didn’t become really popular until 1954 when it was named after Princesse Margrethe who had just been elected for the throne. The Margrethe bowl is one of the first productions in Denmark after the 2. world war made in plastic. After the war it was hard to get materials which means you had to use what you could get, for ROSTI the company behind the bowl, it was  melamine plastic. The bowl is drawn in Sigvard Bernadotte (Queen Margrethe´s uncle) og Acton Bjørns studio  one of the first industrial design studios. The cool thing about The Margrethe bowl is – its really functional, it comes in every color , its pretty cheap AND it last forever!

IF YOU ARE INTO CLASSIC TRENDY COLOR PALETTE – Grey, black and petrol Margrethe is so cool!

IF YOU ARE MORE INTO COLORS MARGRETHE COMES IN HEAPS!!

The Margrethe bowl is designed to stack with other Margrethe bowls of different sizes, it has a handle and spout so you can pour it, and in 1968 it was further developed with a rubber ring on the bottom so it can stand properly on the kitchen counter. Margrethe bowl is a Danish design icon that has appeared on postage stamps and is a part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
