Redoing our kitchen has long been on my “house” list…ever since we moved in, actually. There’s not much “wrong” with our kitchen, it could just really use some updating.
However, due to this summer’s arrival of the twins, the kitchen has been placed on the back burner for a few years – and rightly so! But I was thinking the other day, there have to be others out there who are getting tired of their same old boring kitchen, but don’t have the financial means to invest in a large-scale remodel. And when you get right down to it, there’s no need to invest a lot of money to transform your kitchen into something fresh and new; many projects can be accomplished with a minimal investment!
A little creativity, willingness, and elbow-grease is all it takes to take a drab and lifeless kitchen and turn it into something that makes it feel open and beautiful.
Give New Life to Tired Cabinets
New cabinets and even refacing cabinets will run you thousands of dollars. Instead, breathe modern and upscale life into your cabinets using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. It’s better than latex and spray paint by far. The process involves painting on the color then following behind with a special wax you rub into seal the color. It doesn’t smear or chip and with a variety of chic colors you’ll be amazed at how quickly your kitchen looks brand new again. With another person’s help, you can finish your whole kitchen in a weekend.
