The Kitchen Do Over

Wow, well this took a little longer than I thought. My kitchen overhaul on $100. The weather didn’t wish to co-operate either. If it wasn’t 90′ it was 40′ and raining.

Well it’s done. Okay so not completely. The walls all need a second coat of paint. A few little touches here and there. Oh, and one last chair to do.

I got the counter top all done, cabinets done and a small tile piece under table like a rug just to brighten the room a bit.

I used the old cabinet I had as a shoe and mail holder. I painted it white and flipped it on its side. Each shelf section now makes a great spot for our bags and shoes. I then used the doors from the unit and put them in sideways about 6inches down to make a shelf. Bought cheap baskets for mail.

The old brown chairs with mis-matched seats I have spray painted yellow and white recovering the seat in a blue material. An old curtain to save on money.

My back splash was the faux tin tiles. I have painted them white and a dark blue in each square with a metallic finish so it looks like blue glass tiles.

That’s about it. I rent and also on tight budget so didn’t want to spend much. It’s not perfect but it works.

So here are before and afters
