This kitchen project was all about sanding, priming, painting and hanging. It look the owners longer than they thought — about three weeks total — but what a difference from the brown on brown on brown kitchen it was before. The full project cost about $500.

Classy Clutter was able to get this bright and fun kitchen for about $200. It involved a lot of time (namely spent on the hand-drawn “wallpaper”) but since it’s a rental, she won’t look back and wonder why she spent so much money on a temporary space.

Julia upgraded her kitchen for right around $1,000 and it included a new floor, wall paint and backsplash. The island is made of a table top and trestles from IKEA, which she already had on hand. You see the Before & After pics, or her entire house tour as well.

After two weeks of non-stop painting and sanding, Sarah of All Things With Purpose revealed her fixed up $300 kitchen. To keep costs down she did shiplap instead of tile on the backsplash, and tried her luck at hand-marbleizing the countertop.
