Now, I may or may not be known for being just a tad bit impulsive… and it may or may not be probable that I could have possibly jumped the gun without fully thinking this project through before I started. HOWEVER…thanks to my alleged unconfirmed reactive state of being, I now have these 5 WONDERFUL HELPFUL AMAZING TIPS to share with you on how to do a DIY budget friendly kitchen remodel! Stay tuned….
We purchased our beautifully dated 1940s home in the Summer of 2016. To me, it was the perfect house to turn into our home; I fell in love with it the second I walked in!! Something felt impeccably right and comforting and safe and heartwarming about this home. It reminded me of my first childhood home where many many happy and warm memories were created. Perhaps the feeling spawned from seeing the gorgeous lemon tree in the beautiful backyard or the large windows that paved way to the gorgeous lemon tree in the beautiful back yard…or maybe it was the sweet moment when I met the then homeowner. I recall the warmth in her voice as she shared and reminisced with us about her experiences growing up in the home. She spoke so proudly of the home, her sibling and her parents who I think had been living in the home since it was built. Maybe it was my pregnancy at the time, but I walked away from that first visit feeling extremely emotional and attached to the home. I was ready to sign my life away and start nesting. I immediately knew that this was the right home for our growing family.
We bought the home knowing that it had great bones, and 2 years and a few months into living here, it is still clear that the family before us really gave the home tremendous love, attention and care. However, it is also transparent that this is an older home and the fixtures and accessories are warn out, dated and… well… not really our style. We have a very solid vision of what the home will look like once we win the lottery. Unfortunately for us, we haven’t won, but after 2 years I wanted to feel like we were making some progress towards updating the home. A full remodel isn’t really an option at this time and so a kitchen “face lift” or mini DIY budget friendly kitchen remodel was my intermittent solution for this beauty!
Here’s a view before the update…. keep on reading to see the final results!
