AT DC: I want to update my blah kitchen but don't want it to get too costly. I'm thinking about a kitchen rug, painting the walls and possibility painting the cupboards. I hope you and AT readers can help me.
Thanks for any tips,
Dear Kitchen Confused,
Painting can dramatically change and freshen up a room. Changing the cupboard handles is a fairly quick and easy way to update your cupboards without having to paint or refinish them...
For more kitchen updating info see our past post on renewing kitchen cupboards and Maxwell's post on kitchen rugs. Readers: what do you recommend?
