Amy sent us in photos of the makeover that she and her husband Chad pulled off in their North Carolina home. As Amy states, the before was “clean and easy but not cozy and not very Chad and Amy”. Take a look at the wonderfuly warmed up transformation:

The Afters!

To make this impressive cozified update on a budget, they didn’t go for any major changes such as new cabinets or restructuring the space. They stuck to DIY projects, decorative details that go a long way and the addition of updated appliances. Here are a few of the jobs they completed:
• Replaced the white laminate countertops with butcher block
• Added a subway tile backsplash
• Replaced the drawer pulls with some vintage style beauties
• Added an under mount sink and new faucet
• Added stainless appliances
• Replaced the fluorescents over the sink with pendants
• Installed open shelving
• Added bamboo blinds
• Decorated with artwork, photos and plants
