Updating a kitchen for cheap
I fill the sweet little julep cups with a few blooms until their next use. Keeping them filled has seemed to deter other miscellaneous items being placed there . We have it up slightly higher since we have a narrow island and Chris tends to hit his head on light fixtures.
I added a soft sisal runner, though I keep alternating it with a red and navy traditional rug. The sisal is plusher, which I prefer for washing dishes. The previous owners used it as an eat-in kitchen, we decided to take advantage of the sunroom and make it a breakfast nook, eliminating the need to squeeze a kitchen table in the open area.
I found the corner shelves to be a little awkward and susceptible to clutter, so I use them as storage.In the era of Pinterest perfection, it seems we’re all striving more than ever for a picture perfect home.If painting cabinets white and updating countertops and a new backsplash aren’t in the budget or your husband refuses to paint perfectly good oak cabinets, you’re not alone.The copper canisters make the room cohesive while adding more storage space.We also painted the walls in a soft cream to blend with the backsplash.
