Thanks, I Made It Myself: DIY “Wallpapered” Kitchen Shelves

When you are a renter and also kinda lazy, your humble abode can feel like it’s not really your home.  That’s how I feel, at least. My tea towels hang from the stove but there isn’t much I can do about the color of the walls or the tiles on the  bathroom floor. That “generic…

Frisky Q&A: How To Buy Art When You’re Not Rich
