My Kitchen

Surprise Me!

Lowe’s challenged me this month to refresh my kitchen. Well my kitchen is older, so there was plenty we could do to freshen it up.

First up the cabinets. The finish had turned cloudy on most of the doors and was wearing off in places. The cabinets were showing 40 plus years of wear. The cabinet handles were also dated.

Since new cabinets are not in our budget we did two budget friendly fixes —paint and new hardware. We gave the cabinets a couple coats of dark gray paint. This is a process, but totally doable with patience. We used a paint sprayer to get a really smooth professional finish and sanded between layers. Sleek new handles finished the cabinets off!

New hardware is a great way to update your kitchen

Our tile was also showing its age and I have been eyeing those glass tiles so we decided to replace our tile backsplash. Lowe’s has a great photo tutorial that we followed. How to tile a kitchen backsplash

So here is our freshened up kitchen.
