WHY MY SMALL KITCHEN IS COOL: I'm not the handiest person out there, but something had to be done about this puke-yellow rental dump dominated by a massive refrigerator. A few coats of paint, a contact-paper backsplash and a mini-fridge later, I have a cheerful oasis filled with details that make me smile - and it all cost me less than $350.
