Whether you're living in a rental or don't want to splurge on a renovation project, you can still create the house of board dreams — as proven by Tersey Regan, who turned a dark kitchen in her Hoboken, New Jersey apartment into the kind of bright, airy spot 's top pins are made of.
Unhappy with the green and brown mosaic tile backsplash in her rental, Tersey set out for a temporary solution that could transform the space. As explained on her blog, Tersey found white stick-on decals that look like subway tile. After testing a few sheets out and realizing it was easy and looked great, she completed the project.
Next up: The black countertops. With faux marble paper she found on Amazon — that cost only $9 for a 6.5-foot roll — Tersey decided this would be her next move. While it looks incredible, don't be mistaken. Tersey admits she had to redo it a few times to remove the air bubbles and make the counter edges seamless. In the end, it was worth it.
So, yes, I did just order all of the materials necessary to copy this in my own rental kitchen. I highly recommend you do the same:
