The minute we saw the kitchen makeover pictures that Lindsey posted to our Flickr group, we knew her kitchen would be a great way to launch kitchen and bathroom month here on Apartment Therapy. Lindsey made just a few small changes to her vintage kitchen, but those changes had a big impact on her satisfaction with the space. A full kitchen renovation is a pricey proposition, but Lindsey's makeover demonstrates the benefits of a low cost kitchen facelift.
Lindsey repainted her cabinets in a bright white, and replaced the hinges and cabinet pulls. The new pulls bring a touch of vintage charm to the kitchen as well as spots of bright color. Lindsey also added a new back to the piece she uses as an island, and then painted it a dark color to highlight its white countertop.
We love that Lindsey was able to change the feeling of her room with just a few simple changes. A fresh coat of paint will perk up any kitchen (see Wes and Kayla's Home Hack for tips), and swapping out the cabinet hardware is an easy way to transform the whole look of the room.
You can see more pictures of Lindsey's kitchen on her Flickr page.
