kitschy kitchen


welcome to my little kitschy kitchen *^_^*

I'm not sure why I've waited so long to post a photo of my "kitchen" (I use the quotations because it's not exactly a kitchen, but more like a wall that has cabinets and then a table plopped in front of it) but it is my very favorite area of my studio. It is just so happy and cheerful!! Especially with a proud little pip-pip sitting in front of it! :P

Like all of my furniture, I bought this stuff DIRT CHEAP and then refinished it with some primer/pastel paint. I loved the idea of everything being mis-matched; so I got each of the chairs/table from different places, and painted them all different colors. The tablecloth is vintage from ebay and the cushions were very cheap on amazon. Oh and the flower centerpiece is just some pink/yellow roses that I glued into a half-sphere (although they used to border a gorgeous vintage teapot, until my devilish cats got rambunctious one day and broke it, hahaha). I also scattered some artificial rose petals on top of the center of the table, to really pull it together.

In other news, I just got back from Vidcon the other day... which was BANANAS. I was able to meet sooooo many of you, and it really touched my heart. I'm so happy that I can make you smile <3

  1. I wish I had enough monies saved up to go to Vidcon and meet you :) Even though I couldn't go, your vlogs really made me feel like I was there and experience everything! Could you imagine Vidcon having a special section just for YouTube's pets and having fans meet them? That would be awesome, but stressful as fuck for the animals! Anyways, keep being awesome Kalel, you're like an older sister I never had :)

  10. Kalel, although I didn't get to go to Vidcon, I need to tell you that I absolutely LOVE you with all of my heart. I value you so much. After watching your newest vlog a few minutes ago, I am tearing up because of how wonderful and beautiful you are. I went through really huge confidence issues a year ago, but now thanks to you, I walk with my head held high. Every day you put a smile on my face. I am so thankful that you actually appreciate your fans. Someday I will meet you, and I can say this to you in person. Although I'll probably started crying and I won't be able to talk, just know that the love is still there. ;)

  15. Kalel did you sand everything down before painting? I want to refinish a bunch of furniture but after doing one piece I was pooped from all the sanding! Was wondering if you had any helpful tips about it. Your chairs and table turned out perfect ♡

  21. Kalel, PLEASE do a studio tour! I've been absolutely dying to get a better look at all of your little pastel decorations and homely needs. I tried posting a comment about this before and I'm not sure if it posted, but it was on your post about planning your wedding {btw, I think you should definitely make videos about it}. Anyways, you've been the biggest inspiration in my life and because of you, I'm redoing my room to make it all pastel colors and decor! I really hope I can meet you one day. On the other hand, back to the main subject. As I was saying before, it was mean the world to me if you did a studio tour. In all of the vlogs on WULAS, I look in the background and try to see everything I can in your studio and I just want to get a better look, probably along with a lot of your other kittens! Anyways, I hope you see this and take my idea under consideration! ^-^ Love you, God of all kittens. {P.S, I wish you the best of luck on your wedding and your future dream house with Anthony that you're designing!}

  33. Hey Kalel,
    I tweeted you this a few days ago, but I'm not sure if you've seen it. I know you're busy with planning your wedding, and when I found this blog post from Lauren Conrad (former 'The Hills' star) on a wedding plan timeline, I thought immediately of you. Hopefully it'll help to remind you of anything which may have slipped your mind. Good luck!

  39. Hi Kalel! I just wanted to say that you are such a huge inspiration to me and that everything you do is so amazing. I also would like to say that I feel so bad for all the liar things ppl say about you, I can't even imagine if anyone would say something so cruel and mean about me. I hope you have an amazing day! .

  43. I love everything about your kitchen (except the tablecloth and the chair cushions. I don't know, maybe they're a little TOO kitschy for me! :D) I wish I had such a nice and clean kitchen, but my boyfriend is a cook and well, he's almost the whole day in our kitchen and creates a HUGE mess :( At least he cooks some good vegan food, haha.

  47. Hey, Kalel. I'm 25 too and also engaged to my bf. We too live in Los Angeles. I just think it's so funny how similar our relationships are. My bf mostly watches prank videos on Youtube and Ive been following you since you started on YouTube. I was watching your WULAS one day and my bf was moaning about how it's so gay or whatever. But I made him sit through it and I was telling him how Anthony and him look alike! We started cracking up about it. We started to find more and more things in common we had with you two. Like how he's a game developer, and Anthony plays video games. And you and I play video games and are I to beauty and fashion. Anyway, fast forward to now, and now he's just as addicted to your WULAS as I am! He feels so guilty and ashamed about it too, which brings me even more joy LOL anyway, just wanted to share that with you. I hope you have a great day!

  60. Love your kitchen <3 Just saw your school haul vid and with some of the big slouchy tops I instantly thought they'd definitely be good at "that time of the month - f*** off & leave me alone, I wanna eat chocolate till I burst tops" LOL

    I also wanted to just give you my advice for your wedding day/planning. I too am a bit of a control/perfection freak and planning IS really important for a wedding, HOWEVER - my simple thing is to remember when you're married 10 years down the line you won't even remember what canapes you had, who sat next to who etc, - if you've done it right all you should remember is that magical time in the service when you look into each others eyes and promise to be there for each other, through good and bad times. Your wedding is all about you and Anthony, yes it's nice for others to say what a great wedding, but some of the best weddings I've been to haven't cost a fortune and have been small intimate affairs where friends and family have had a great laugh and fun together.
    One of our best memories of our wedding was driving back from the church to the reception and asking the driver to take the long route. We sat back in the car, had a smooch, talked about the service and held hands. Later in the day we both sat in the hotel reception area and just watched everyone and tried to take it all in so we could remember it. Someone had told me that she could barely remember her wedding as it was running to such a timetable and so many people were invited that apart from welcoming them, she never got to talk to them again in the day and didn't have time to sit and chat with her closest friends, so I vowed not to do the same and I'm so pleased I didn't. It's so easy to get caught up in the 'circus' of it all - well you MUST have this and that, and everyone will be expecting such and such - well STUFF 'EM!! - it's your day, do what makes you happy AND A STRESSED OUT BRIDE IS NOT A HAPPY ONE!!!!!!!!!!! Back in the '80's, before you were born - god I'm old - one of my friends got married in a registry office, they had very little money. We both went and bought her dress and my bridesmaids dress at a department store and made her a flower headpiece and bouquet. After the service we all walked down the High street to McDonalds and ate there and then went into some of the stores - everyone was taking photographs and she got given lots of free goodies, especially from the make up section, we then went to their house where everyone brought food and drink and the party went on until the early hours - we didn't stop laughing all day and everyone talked about it for years.
    Basically, in a nutshell - don't worry about anyone else, what they'll say or think - just do what feels right for the both of you and remember: whether the cars are late picking you up, your make-up runs, or Aunty June dances naked on the table - it won't make a bit of difference to your marriage and your future life together - if your day is perfect, great, if it's not, well then you'll have lots of days together in the future making even better memories. Have fun with your planning and remember to be kind to yourself - so there'll be no stressing out :) xxx @FluffyDebbs
