Kitchen Mini-Makeover

The kitchen in this place has always been a bone of contention for me. I spend most of my time in the kitchen and it's the room I like the least.  The floor is cheap vinyl, the tile is easily chipped, the beige-yellow color of some of the cabinets and walls is ugly and the brown-red stained cabinets is just confusing...why would anyone choose that stain?

Here's a reminder:




Since I threw caution and my security deposit to the wind when I painted the bathroom (which looks a million times better bdubs) and added a kitchen door, my next wish list redo item was to paint the kitchen. Since it's a rental and I don't want to throw gobs of money at it, I talked myself out of repainting the whole room. That was a bit more than I wanted to spend. Instead I kept it on the cheap and used the rest of the paint we used in the bathroom and just painted the red-brown cabinets and the beige-yellow shelf/cabinet that was peeling and chipping. Just doing this small amount changed so much.

If you follow me on Instagram you've seen a few teasers about what I did.








 And here's the whole thing:


 



 It's amazing what white paint can do! I also changed out the existing knobs and added knobs and bin pulls to the bottom cabinets and drawers and rearranged a little. Now they all match (they didn't before). The total was about $70 and that includes another gallon of paint when the first one ran out, supplies and the knobs.
