Tanya and her husband have been slowly updating and decorating their house on a small budget, just completing a remodel of their kitchen. In their previous home, they played it safe with design, concerned about resale. But in this home they did whatever they wanted, making some pretty dramatic changes in the kitchen that brightened and modernized the small space.
Almost everything in our revamped kitchen was a DIY project, from painting the cabinetry, building the pantry – even making wood counters from scratch. AT readers always love to know the cost of projects, and I'm happy to oblige: the grand total for renovation supplies cost just under $1500!
Wow it's so cheery and bright now! The blue is so much fun and matches your vintage Pyrex collection perfectly. See more of this kitchen makeover plus "links to all of the projects and inspiration, the budget breakdown, sources, and oodles of before and after photos from different angles" on Tanya's blog.
Thank you Tanya!
