|Sheesh, could this kitchen look anymore dark and depressing?|
We got a price list of the tools for rent. It's pricier than I expected, but it's cheaper than having a professional do the work. I am really bummed that Home Depot no longer carries my Goddess Martha Stewart paint. The paint guy suggested we try Glidden as a substitute so we bought some samples to test out on the walls this weekend.
|We chose Natural Wicker for the walls and Toasted Mashmallow for the trim.|
|I budgeted $350 for the backsplash tile, now we only going to spend about $50 for everything!|
|The store's display wasn't impressive. I wanted larger tiles but since it's a Do-it-ourselves-on-a-budget project, I'll take it.|
I shopped the knobs and drawer pulls section since Ikea doesn't have what I'm looking for.
The price is perfect but Goddess Martha is bumming me out with the dated nipple knob. I am over the brushed nickel style so I'm still on the hunt. I practically bought every style of knob to bring home to test out on the cabinets. I almost like these antique glass ones but Antz is not a fan.
|Nah, these knobs are too dainty for the doors|

And so begins the new life of DIY kitchen renovators!!
