We have been very busy with family visits as of late. We were out of town for almost a week and then had family staying with us for almost a week. It was wonderful to see our daughter connect with grandparents, great grandparents, Aunts and Uncles, but I don’t know where the time has gone!! Now I’ve got to come back to reality and get my life in gear again. That means blogging (among other things).
Why hello everyone out there :)!
Today I’m going to share my ideas for brightening my kitchen and making it more functional without spending on a pricey renovation. Though I’m applying for full time jobs now nothing is final yet, so I’m trying to keep my ideas for home updates in line with a realistic budget. (Here’s hoping!)
The first step is light and bright decor in my kitchen. Cheaper than taking out walls and redoing cabinets. Here are some ideas I have…
New rug (via)
Stool to use as a little seat and table for my little girl. Found here and to be painted yellow like this inspiration piece.
Finally, I want art over my cabinets. They are just an open space now and until I can run them to the ceiling, I might as well like what I look at each day…
I think for about $500 I could get all this done. Now my real challenge is to see if I can do this look for less. Stay tuned :).
