The biggest DIY yet!!!

Ok! So this isn't a craft project, but it is a huge DIY! Our kitchen is small but mighty and now that I'm home with the girls it sees a lot more love. Unfortunately, it's just bleh and completely uninspiring. When we moved in, it was actually the least offensive room in the house. It was painted a neutral color unlike the rest of the house that was mustard yellow from floor to ceiling (literally, the ceiling, walls, and trim were all yellow).

Originally, we decided we didn't want to put any real money into it since we want to do a full renovation and completely redo the kitchen. So why put in money after money? Well, we still plan on doing that, but it's probably a few years away and I don't want to be in this kitchen the way it is for a few more years….I'll just get sad.

So! I decided….it's time for a DIY facelift! Literally everything in the kitchen is getting touched: walls, cabinets, countertops, backsplash, and floor. And the best part…all for under $500. To me, that was worth the money.

Over the next few weeks I'll document each step as we get it done. I'm working top to bottom, so the first step: PAINT!

To give you a quick glimpse into what I'm working with, here's a couple of before shots of the kitchen.

As you can see, or maybe you can't, but the mismatched linoleum tiles are peeling up, the cabinet doors all hang lopsided, and the toe kick under the sink is just nonexistent.

It's time to roll up my sleeves and make some changes up in here!
