My husband and I are purchasing our first home, and I would love suggestions on how to "refresh" the kitchen and bathroom. In the end, we're going to only have probably $2,000 (max) to spend on both spaces.
In the kitchen, I'm thinking of painting the cabinets, and the countertops (has anyone done countertops painting?). What do you guys think of that idea? Does anyone have a better idea than that? I'm rather desperate. And it's going to be a few years or so, since hub and I have to save up to complete the reno, so I really want it to be a nice, decent and comfortable place for me to cook, since I love to cook.
P.S. I like muted and neutral colors usually. My appliances most likely will be white.
Thanks in advance!
Do you have any great ideas for Nevaeh? Leave them after the jump!
My advice is to definitely paint your cabinets! Also, check out this advice for painting your countertops. Just make sure to cover the paint with a clear urethane so the countertops will hold up to the wear and tear of daily use (especially since you love to cook).
I'm sure that Casa readers have a lot of other great, economic ideas for improving your space. I can't wait to hear everyone's great ideas for Nevaeh's kitchen!
Good luck on your reno,
