Renovating Our Kitchen On A Budget

*Collaborative Post

When we made the decision to renovate our kitchen we always knew we wanted to do it on a budget and to do most of it ourselves. Yes, it can be really easy to walk into a showroom, pick an entirely new kitchen design and get a team in to do this but the costs can be pretty steep and when you already have items that can be reused, it seems such a waste to rip it all out to start again, and so, our long yet rewarding project began back in October and even though we still have a few ideas left to implement, most of the change is now done and it’s come such a long way from the dark and dingy kitchen we once had.

How I am Planning on Brightening up my Kitchen

*Collaborative Post

We’ve been living in our current home for almost 7 years now and I have decided it is time for some changes. When we moved in, it was a blank canvas.
