We are a couple of weeks into making the new house feel like home and I have so many projects to share with you! The first is part one of the kitchen update. Our house is fairly new, built in 2003, but the kitchen had some pretty cheap cabinets and hardware that made it look more like an early nineties build. New cabinets were definitely not in a first-time home buyers’ budget, so I decided to get creative. I was a bit apprehensive to attempt repainting cabinets and hardware but after a little reassurance from my DIY Pro brother, Mark, I was ready to take on the task.
I am so impressed with how this small amount of work made such a huge impact on the room. Of course, I would have much rather had new cabinets installed with fancy soft-close hinges. But this is reality, not my dreams. Either way, I love the kitchen, brand new or not.
Stay tuned for part two of the kitchen update where I reveal the rest of the room and a very unexpected product that will make you think twice about shelling out big bucks when remodeling. There’s your teaser. Come back soon!
