Our kitchen was in desperate need of a revamp. When we moved in to the bungalow the solid oak units were painted cream and we did brighten the walls up with a splash of orange but it was always a little boring for us. A little spark of an idea for the up-cycle project came when the lovely Jo gifted us a pack of 4 tattoo style ceramic door knobs by ‘Temerity Jones’ and said “I saw these and thought of you two!” From those four door knobs has sprung a whole tattoo themed kitchen. We sourced more ‘Temerity Jones’ ceramic knobs and alternated the hearts and swallows throughout the kitchen with 27 new door knobs in total. The cream wooden kitchen units were painted in eggshell ‘Retro Chic” by Valspar and we were so happy to find some completely awesome tattoo and knitting themed wallpaper (I know just perfect huh?) to decoupage the centre panels from ‘Spoonflower.com’. The wallpaper has brilliant messages such as ‘Knit Fast Die Warm’ and ‘Born to Knit’ emblazoned over it which I just adore. A couple of coats of varnish later and our boring cream kitchen is totally transformed into a tattoo inspired bright retro kitchen!
