What do you do when your house has cabinets and countertops that are a little less than inspiring, or your wall color puts you to sleep? Why, you make them over of course! This first-time homeowner and her husband set to work, making smart economical decisions.Julie in St. Louis, along with the help of her husband, have been hard at work making their home and specifically their kitchen into a bombshell of a space. Although Julie makes mention that it wasn't the worst kitchen in the world beforehand, they desperately wanted to bring it into this decade and make it a great space to work in.
From the faux tin tile backsplash (which is actually an easy to clean vinyl from Lowes) to the bright and cheery paint, they did a great job while working within a budget. The appliances were new when they moved in, so instead of hopping on the stainless steel bandwagon, they kept them and made them a part of the space with the white trim and light cabinets!
Thanks Julie! Great work!
