Shelby’s new cute Craftsman style home had a lot of old charm….except for the bland builder-grade kitchen. She couldn’t bear it for long, and decided something needed to be done before she started cooking and entertaining…

After getting quotes for thousands of dollars, Shelby took matters into her own hands and staged a guerrilla-style attack on the room:

With pure elbow grease, less than $100 in paint and supplies, a bottle of wine, and a jazz playlist, I finished the kitchen project in three evenings after work, all the while keeping in mind that it didn’t have to be perfect, it just had to be better. The result: not a remodel so much as an upgrade that adds some style, function, and expresses my own personality.

Thanks for sharing Shelby!
