We started the second round of out eat-in kitchen makeover with a pretty blank slate. Last year, I ripped all the wallpaper off the walls, painted the walls white and then painted the window trim black. It sat with a pretty blank slate for just over a year.

In October of this year, we decided to really get in gear with the eat-in kitchen. We put up a DIY plank wall, built a bench seat, reupholstered the chairs, made leather chair cushions, made a slew of pillows, rehung the DIY painting, changed out the light fixture, put up a small gallery wall and potted some plants.

Overall, we are thrilled with the space. My husband painted the highland cow last year, and I knew I wanted to focus the whole design around that piece. Scotland has a special place in our hearts so it’s a nod to that for us. I think the overall feel of the space, totally feels like us and goes with the rest of the house.

To update this whole space, we spent just over $500.
