From Wendy: For my kitchen makeover we worked to a pretty tight budget but man, I gotta tell you, I love it. You know when you go to a party and everyone winds up in the kitchen? Yeah, that’s basically me — every single night. Party for one. This is my most favorite space. It has an open plan with the living space, and with all signs of those ugly brown laminate cabinets removed, it’s now just an oasis. We began my budget kitchen renovation by painting the units with Annie Sloan chalk paint.

Now, I never hated my tiles but they were kinda … meh. You know? I mean, they were just so beige. Hardly living out my Spanish casita Pinterest dreams. And then a friend introduced me to Beija Flor World. Mind officially blown. Surely stickers over tiles were going to be kinda naff? Well, you tell me.

I can confidently say that there has been no peeling or any other weird side effect you might be concerned about with stickers. Basically, these are the bomb. New tiles, without retiling.

Then we re-skinned the kitchen bar with pale concrete and added simple blue and white decor accents to complete the look.

  • Total hours spent to complete the kitchen project: 30
  • Approximate budget: £450 ($625)
