This is what my kitchen looked like when we bought this house. The blue cabinets were a recent attempt to create an updated feel to this space that failed miserably. The smurf blue of the cabinets was accented nicely by the originally red, now faded pink, Formica countertops. And to top off the hideousness that is this kitchen, it was really dingy. The surfaces had all be wiped down but it's hard to swiffer away 40+ years of dirt and grime. The only thing that will save this space place is a head to toe make-over. Unfortunately, kitchen renovations are expensive and not really at all in the budget at the moment. So a simple face lift will have to do for now.

Your home should be your happy place. Somewhere you can go to relax and get away from the world. A place to call your own. I feel like many people put off home renovations because of the time and money involved. I’m here to show you sprucing up your home doesn’t have to cost thousands of dollars or take up all of your time. It does take a little elbow grease but creating your perfect home should be a labor of love. In the first 100 days of living in my house I was able to great a beautiful place to call home for around $800. I decided what was important to me and stuck to my plan. This “mini renovation” was just what I needed to feel at home while I plan the mother of all renovation jobs.
