DIY Kitchen Cabinet Makeover

24 Apr

This past winter, we moved into our new house. The same day we closed on the house, we began staining the cabinets. We didn’t waste any time. : ) It is an older kitchen with oak cabinets and we really wanted to update it in a cost efficient way.


This project only ended up costing about $100 and makes the kitchen look a lot better.  The process is not too complicated and it is definitely worth it! Unfortunately, I forgot to take before pictures, so the only picture I have of the kitchen is from before we even moved in.


If you are looking for a cheap way to improve your bathroom, kitchen or furniture, I would definitely recommend this project!!





Simple Desk Makeover

13 Mar

This desk holds a lot of memories. My dad received it as a gift on his 7th birthday.  Years later it was passed on to me. Through out my life it has served many different purposes. It started off as my home school “classroom” desk, which later turned into my “vanity” in high school and it is now used to hold my cosmetology materials. Although, it’s been a very loyal desk,  it was in desperate need of a makeover.


This makeover only took me 30 minutes. However, I also used all leftover materials I already had at home. I simply repainted it white, added new knobs, stuck gray adhesive shelf liner to the top and covered it with a sheet of glass. This desk definitely has the simple, clean look that I was aiming for. I love it! I hope it will serve me many more years to come. : )
