A while ago I shared my kitchen redo but since then we have made a few changes. When we first moved into this house I knew the kitchen needed a facelift. But we are renting and because of that we only wanted to invest a little bit of money. With a little bit of elbow grease we turned this kitchen into something we could be proud of.
The kitchen started out with red walls and yellow countertops. The cabinets were in ok shape but I wanted to lighten it up a bit. Paint makes all the difference in the world.
Here are a few more of the before pictures.
We had our own appliances that we moved into the space. We got a great deal from The Sears Outlet. I love them so much! We painted the cabinets white and if you need some help with a painting project here, here, here, here, and here, are a few of our tips. We thought about getting butcher block counter tops from Ikea but we ended up getting so lucky and got some countertop from a local company that we called in a favor for. If you want cheap countertops, have you seen that you can PAINT YOUR EXISTING ONES. If any of you have used it I would love to hear what you think about!
We did a few more things, Here is the break down of the cost…
Spring is in full-swing in most areas of the country! Except she’s a little confused and sending up to 3″ of snow to New York tomorrow. I’ll let it slide because we’ve had gorgeous weather for a few days! I even put my baby in shorts today!! 70+ degrees is just perfection. Anywho, one of my favorite, favorite breakfasts (and snacks!) is a nice cold smoothie! I love that you can pack tons of fruits and veggies into meal and there are so many amazing recipes to try. I’ve rounded up over 20 of my favorites for you!
