The kitchen is often the most expensive room to remodel, so if you're on a budget, sometimes it takes a few months or years to do! That's what one Apartment Therapy writer experienced. She transformed her kitchen into her dream space, but she did it in her own time as she could afford it. It's not done yet, but as you can see in this photo, it's certainly looking pretty great!
The original kitchen (which you can see here) had all the trappings of an outdated kitchen: poor lighting, dropped ceilings, gold Formica countertops, and beige VCT flooring. Over the course of two years small changes were made to turn it into the refreshing space you see above: the floors were ripped up, new appliances were installed, and the cabinet doors (which were made of solid wood) were professionally sprayed with Benjamin Moore Aura paint in Cotton Balls and (my favorite) the bright Laura Ashley's Ivy Wreath on the bottom cabinets.
