Weekends are great for getting done quick fix projects around the house. It is awhile since I did these simple changes in my kitchen and have finally decided to share this successful fix.
Have you ever found some decor/architectural issue around the house that seem to need a permanent solution that might require calling carpenters and masons and waiting for them endlessly? Well, I had a similar problem in my kitchen and I decided to fix it myself. It is not the perfect, permanent solution, but that is what I like about it, the ability to be creative and maybe change the setting later.
The problem : The modular kitchen chimney.
The fitting by the vendor was done in such a way the chimney metal could be seen protruding over the wooden border. This sight made more unsightly by the fact that the house was built on split level, which meant climbing the stairs to the living area, the protruding chimney and pipe outlet was more prominent.
The Solution : A few spare wooden panels and a chai matki set!
I just placed the wooden panels, the plain rectangular one seen in the photo above, over the protruding part of the chimney and used to support the Chai Matki set and the shaped panel as the facade of this quick fix.
Well it was the easiest way to solve my problem and the chai matki and kettle stand out rather beautifully against the bright yellow kitchen wall!
