DIY- Kitchen

My husband and I are low on cash...... for sure.
But our old kitchen was just not working....
Here is our design on a dime.

The dreadful kitchen before

And this is after..... and I love it

Paint that wall. Living in a small apartment makes it hard to have bold colors like that red. Painting it a lighter off white opened up the apartment!!

Replace ugly tile counter top with granite!
Tip: Don't have money to spend? Try to go to construction sites or talk to friends and family that are renovating. Most of the time they have extra granite that is left over from a project for the fraction of the price. Most of the time it is not a solid piece. But when you have a small kitchen it still looks great.

Look at that sink faucet?? It gives the kitchen such a face lift! Tip: Look for display sink faucets.
You can get the same amazing look for so cheap and it was just used a little.

Cabinets are very expensive! Try refacing them. Giving them a new look by making doors. And you don't have to demolish the entire kitchen just unscrew the doors!! And find some one sale hard ware to finish it off.

Love the white brick back splash. I was unsure about going white (seemed boring). But the brick shape and colorful counter tops make it a nice finished look. Putting a back splash in is very easy! Anyone can do it.

Now maybe one day I can get new floors...
