Marcia Andreychuk and Joel Hamilton are big fans of The Simpsons, they tell CBC News. When it came time to remodel their kitchen, they turned to their favourite television show for inspiration. According to the CBC, it was Marcia’s idea.

“This idea just popped into my head and I pitched it to Joel — kind of as a way to get his buy-in to spend money on doing some renovations,” she told the news network.

The Renovation

Feeling inspired, they set out to renovate. Taking a framed photograph of the kitchen, Marcia and Joel set out to replicate the look in their own home. She searched online for corn cob-patterned fabric for the window curtains.

Next up was the searching for door knobs for the cabinets. While the couple is searching for green appliances, their current project involves covering their countertops, cabinetry and fridge with contact paper. They tell the CBC it’s similar to shelf liner.
