Before and After: Cathy's $276 Kitchen Makeover

Apartment Therapy reader Cathy recently sent us over this simple remodel she did on her kitchen (Cathy is no stranger to DIYs, as you might remember her stock tank pool from this summer). With some new hardware, paint and a little elbow grease, Cathy's kitchen has gotten a whole lot brighter.

By dying the grout on the floor, repainting and replacing the hardware, she was able to create an updated kitchen for under $300.

Drawer Pulls: $153
Hinges: $48
Grout Renew: $15
Paint: $60 (Kelly Moore Swiss Coffee 1 gallon, Kelly Moore Portland Whitbed 1 gallon)

It's easy to think that updates to our home need to be drastic (and costly) to make a real difference. Thanks to Cathy for reminding us that simple changes are really capable of much more than we give them credit.
