While I enjoy ogling breathtaking, no-expense-spared kitchen renovations, the ones that really amaze me are the real life, small budget makeovers with big impact. Check out how the folks at Fresh Home Magazine revived this sad 70s kitchen for a mere $1,200.
Talk about going from dated & drab to white & welcoming! Working with, rather than replacing, the existing cabinets, tile & countertops, they managed to keep costs down while the new vinyl floors and fresh coat of paint make the space much more inviting. Done quickly and without contractors, this makeover reaffirms the power of a fresh coat of paint and a teeny bit of elbow grease.
