Updating Your Kitchen on a Budget


Spring and warm weather has everyone thinking about projects.  Inside, outside, anywhere, it seems the sunshine has everyone wanting to get to work around the house.  About two years ago we did a major overhaul on our kitchen.  Most of you probably remember that project, but if not you can read all about it here.  Let me remind you of our before:


And the after:

We did lots of projects, some big and some small.  You can very easily update your kitchen without spending a ton of money.  We did this complete makeover for less than $1,000.  Our smaller projects included adding new accessories, painting and adding a new pantry door, adding hardware, putting a different table in here and adding bench seats, and creating our DIY pendant light.

Our larger projects included our DIY concrete countertops, painting the kitchen cabinets, making over the island with paint and a new countertop, installing a subway tile backsplash, and adding a bar to the kitchen.  Whether you are working on a large or small kitchen project, every little thing can make a difference.  Paint can work wonders-on walls and cabinets!
