My room makeover::
Our home was completely original 1980s when we purchased it. It was dark, dingy, and really needed a make over. I started painting the cabinets as soon as we moved in, but worked on it on and off over the next year. I painted the walls, ceiling, and upper cabinets the same shade of white, which really opened up the room. Including the new appliances, we spent approx. $3,500 on the kitchen.
My makeover advice::
It really helps to have a vision of the end result. I made a mood board for the kitchen and it really helped me stay on task when I was choosing paint colors and decor.
What I love most about my new space::
I love how the space feels bright and airy, with a vintage touch. It's finally a place I enjoy making meals for my family.
