When Kitchn reader Elizabeth moved into her Brooklyn apartment, it was a dull affair: "The kitchen floors were a brown linoleum that never looked clean, the cabinets were a mega mess, and the lighting couldn't have been less desirable," she wrote to us. "Nothing like halogen donut overhead bulbs!" But after a few DIY projects, including painting and redoing the kitchen floor, the new space is full of color and personality! See how her kitchen looks now:

So cute! We love this update. Elizabeth tells us she redid the floors with self-adhesive tiles, repainted, and "added a lot of little things along the way to make it an enjoyable place to cook, write, and supper club it with friends."
