The $15 Kitchen Makeover

Often times, when we talk about kitchen makeovers, even our most inexpensive options can seem a little pricey, but not this time! This kitchen makeover totaled a small $15 and gave the space a fresh new look. Ready to see the changes made?

The cabinets were covered in white contact paper, giving them a new crisp feel and placemats were purchased from the dollar store and thumbtacked to the backsplash around the kitchen.

When you rent your options aren't always vast and talking to your landlord doesn't always win anyone over when it comes to painting and replacing, plus if you don't plan on being there for a lengthy amount of time, it's not always worth your dollar to upgrade. Though in this case, $15 made all the difference in the world.

Make sure you head over to Curbly to see more photos and the salad bowl light fixture that was sanded down to let the light shine through! Brilliant!
