My Budget Kitchen Makeover Finished!



My Budget Kitchen Makeover Finished!
I finished painting 2 days ago and then took another day to weed out some things. We hung prints, frames and the shelving unit today. I also moved a few things around, recycling within the room. You'll see my personal style is Scandinavian/French country mixed with vintage. Here's a re-cap...
we decided to live with the counter a few more years, so I installed a new backslash, plumber installed a new sink, faucet, replaced undercounter water filter, got the thrifted dining table and I painted. I used Behr's "Yogurt" paint color. Here's the "afters", on a small budget!

still loving my new fridge!


  
I may refinish this thrifted piece soon, it's either oak or mahogany! $40.00 at Goodwill!!!
I'll be painting the inside soon...

my fave iron towel bar, soon to be drying herbs



my computer/blogging desk

shelf went from black to navy blue

my new thrifted French clock on my $10.00 window :)

I may slipcover my desk chair to something lighter and refinish our china cabinet, otherwise I'm done for now!!!

You are one very talented lady! Plus, the fact that you're not adverse to doing the work to accomplish your goals helps A LOT! I think it's so true that those "little touches" really make a room and/or a home special. Wow, again. What an "eye" you have!

Thanks Mama! I really enjoy fixing things up, and doing research helps a lot too. I'm a visual person so the internet really helps :)
