The kitchen is the heart of our home. We entertain, cook, bake, eat, talk and gather in our kitchen. And 8 years ago, when I painted it red, I loved it.
In three years, we will have saved enough to drastically remodel the kitchen but I needed to do something now.. as I could not take another day of the dark red kitchen. So the goal was to Freshen and lighten without spending a large amount of cash!!!
So here it is...
Two coats of paint on the cabinets, baseboards, windows and crown molding. $65.
Two coats of wall paint. A gorgeous pewter blue. $65.
All the handles were scrubbed clean, primed and painted with a Krylon metallic paint. $6.
New Curtains and Tablecloths , $220.
Budget for Accessories: $144 for pictures, placemats, etc. I am changing the lighting with can lights for over the sink. Also, I want to change out the fan with either more can lighting or a new light fixture.
I also have two cans of a soft green to paint the kitchen island and stools.
Overall, the look is exactly what I wanted, a soft, light, pretty kitchen that will keep me inspired to cook, bake and entertain until I can afford my remodeled kitchen.
