The kitchen in my apartment has been an after thought for as long as I've lived here. I love decorating and rearranging the living room, but I haven't spent much time doing anything to the kitchen. It's quite drab to be honest. Most people would agree that it's nothing special and usually really dark. BUT, I would like to add that it has an awesome brick wall behind our cute retro oven, which has so much character all on its own. I was talking with my roommate about the dilemma and we both agreed that it needs some love. That conversation sparked the idea of using this wonderful newspaper cover as an art piece. Once the idea was formed, I had all the materials in my apartment and it only took about 15 minutes to execute it! I took photos of the steps and of the final product. It's super simple and adds some life to my life-less and dark kitchen! I hope you enjoy this DIY and try your own spin on it. I have more plans for this little kitchen in our apartment so stay tuned to see what's next.
Glue or tape
Step 1: The first thing I did was cut the cover of the Newspaper off, making sure to use an xacto knife and a ruler to make the cut straight and clean.
Step 2: I traced the Newspaper cover onto the foam core to get the correct sizing.
Step 3: I then cut the foam core using my xacto knife and ruler again and decided to use glue to attach the Newspaper cover to the foam core.
Once those three steps were done, I attached the hanger and drilled a hole in the wall and TA-DA I had a new art piece in my kitchen. So easy and so cute!
I hope you all try this fun and easy DIY! Keep your eye out for rad newspaper covers and make them into your own art pieces. Thanks for reading!
