I haven’t really been perfectly at peace with our home, so I wanted to get some decor going and fix up some of the interior. One of the first things I did today was patch up some of the screens, rice paper or otherwise. A while back I found some sticker that are meant to patch up screens so you don’t need to buy new ones or pay to repair them fully. That was an awesome find since our’s are a complete mess. Here are some pictures of the finished products:
Later in the day we went to, once again, try and get my hair cut. The salon was, once again, closed and had a sign that seemed to be saying they didn’t have enough workers to operate and were closed until they did… So… On to the hardware store next door!
A month or two ago I tried out something that I kept seeing in Japan; wall decals. I bought some trees and set up a small one in our WC. I really loved the end result and was contemplating where I should set up the second, larger tree. I thought about putting it behind our kitchen table, but in the end decided to have a very wooded bathroom.
For our table, I was recently gifted some pictures by Mai. She took them when She, Sam, and I went to the big matsuri. I really loved the pictures and I wanted to frame them. The only frames I could find were meant to rest on tables, not walls, so I had to jerry-rig them with some string and knotting to make them do what I wanted. Since they were just dollar store frames, I didn’t feel bad pulling off parts and messing around with their configuration.
While at the hardware store I checked out the wall decals, just to see if I liked anything. I found some that I liked which happened to be on sale! So I bought them and threw those up on the wall with the pictures. I like how it turned out, although the feel is probably a big difference from the rest of our apartment on any given, slightly messy, day. I keep thinking about the next tenant, whom I can only assume is going to be male, and how they will be welcomed into this super girly apartment. It’ll be awesome.
Have a look at the kitchen set up:
