5 Minute Makeover

Being funemployed has left me with some time on my hands. So I figured I would put it to good use.

A few weeks ago, I spotted these self adhesive tiles at the local MaxStock (similar to Crazy Store in SA). At ₪ 10 (R40) a sheet I couldn’t pass them up.

The little corner wall where my stove is, was getting really dirty from food splashes as I cook and I have wanted to create a back splash for ages.

So I cleaned the wall, let it dry and snapped this before pic.

It literally took me 5 minutes to open the packs of tiles, peel the backing off and then place them on the wall. I placed 2 across and 2 up and then cut 1 tile in half to add on to the tiles going across.

They were not as sticky as I would have liked and will probably peel off at some stage (I actually used a glue stick to make one side of a tile stick down) but for now I am pretty impressed with it.

And the best part is if I get bored or they do fall off, I can just pop out and get different tiles and replace them. Easy peasy!

#Zombieprompts – If I won the lottery…

Oh boy. I can spend hours and hours fantasizing about what I would do. Mostly I think I would be practical though.

First off, I would buy/build a house. I would make sure it was perfect. Specifically the kitchen. I have a kitchen fetish and a huge board on Pinterest with many, many clever ideas I would like to include.

Then I would put away money into a trust for the children. A nest egg for them. For their education, weddings, first home, travel, whatever they need/want.

I would pay off all our debts.

Then, I would take a holiday. We would go somewhere fun, lots of site seeing, lots of food, lots of relaxation.

And then I would put what was left into an investment for our retirement and I would go back to work and living my life. 

 

 

*jumps up and down in excitement*

I am so so so excited.  The fridge/freezers were delivered today.  They look so good in my moms kitchen.  We decided against getting the side by side model as it was very narrow and we had reservations about the height.  Instead we got two fridge/freezer combos.  They fit perfectly.

Here are some before and after shots…
