Before & After: Foreclosure Becomes a Fantastic Farmhouse Kitchen

Before & After: Foreclosure Becomes a Fantastic Farmhouse Kitchen

When Meg bought her first house, it was in need of a lot of love. She bought a house that had been foreclosed in Georgia, and she decided that the kitchen was the first place she wanted to start.

Meg took the drab kitchen, which was also in need of a good scrubbing, and made it into a lovely farmhouse style space.

We're not only impressed with Meg's kitchen because it looks so inviting, but also because she DIYed many of the projects herself. She writes:

I started by tearing out everything besides the floors and cabinets. Replacing the cabinets wasn't in the budget, so they got a good scrub, a fresh coat of paint, and a change of hardware.

She also replaced the countertops and sink with new ones from IKEA. And the beige tile backsplash was replaced with simple white subway tile, which fit easily into her budget.

But our favorite part of the kitchen is the butcher block island that Meg built herself. She used left over countertop material and pieces from the hardware store. Then she finished it all off with a cheery coat of matte yellow paint. Such an inspiring transformation!
