Kitchen Update for under $100

I finally have my kitchen all back together!

I started with paint. Our cupboards were too close to the shade of the cabinets and I felt like they got lost. I would have liked to go a little lighter and a little more gray for the paint color…but I settled for a happier hubby instead! We used the color Blue Arrow by Valspar. If you look at the paint chip don’t be deceived. It almost looks greenish on the card! Paint makes such a huge difference. Its a lot of work but where else can you make such a big impact for only $25!

Five years ago I looked at hardware for our cabinets and it was so expensive! This time I was able to find some awesome hardware for super cheap!

I  was able to do the whole kitchen for $51! I was a little nervous about the quality but it was awesome – nice and heavy! The only thing that I have to complain about was that the screws for the drawer pulls were not long enough so we had to go buy a box of new screws for about $3. It added a lot of depth to the cabinets and gave the home more of a custom feel.

I also changed things up on top of the cabinets a little bit. I tried to use warm accent colors since the walls are a cooler tone.

I also made a new Market sign for above our pantry, with Lori’s help and some scrap wood!

I also made a new laundry sign for above the door to the laundry room and changed up what was on my pot rack.

Total expense:

Paint – $25

Hardware – $51 + $3

Accessories- $18

Total cost – $97

Its so fun to have things changed and freshened up!
