THE KITCHEN REVEAL IS FINALLY HERE! Can you believe it?! As I started working on the budget kitchen remodelpost, it became pretty clear that I would have to break it into two parts because there is just so much awesomeness to cover, so this, my friends is Part 1. Part 2is now up on the blog! Be sure to check that out, too! And, if you are curious about where I purchased certain thingspersonalized gifts for him for birthday, you can check out the full source list for the kitchen hereor by scrolling to the bottom of the post.

Now, I must remind you what we started with, so that you can fully appreciate the transformation.

I know you all just want to get to the photos and not have to read all my babbling first, so here is the first photo of our budget remodel!

Now, before you get to enjoy more photos, let me tell you that 90% of our budget kitchen remodel was accomplished by simply PAINTING nearly every surface! We painted the tile backsplash, the walls, the trim and doors, and of course, the cabinets. You can check out all the details on how we painted our kitchen cabinets without sanding or priming here.

We also painted the floor and stenciled it using the amazing Hollywood Squares stencil from Royal Design Studio Stencil. All the details on paint choices will be coming soon, but as you can see, we selected a light blue for the walls, light grey for the cabinets, and dark grey for the island cabinetry. We also used dark grey to paint the backsplash.

Paint even brought life to some of the decorative accents you see, like the dog food storage binand the orange trays. And there is no doubt that the painted floors drastically transformed the space as well. The bottom line is that the creative use of paint enabled us to complete this budget kitchen remodel for around $700! Not too shabby!

I think it's fair to say that painting the cabinets and backsplash has the most dramatic impact in the space. You can see the trim and doors.

Updating the lighting also has a huge impact in the space. I ADORE these light fixtures that we hung about the island. I purchased them at Target about 1 year ago on clearance. They were only $20 each. LOVE THEM!

And with the cabinets painted, I now love how this open shelf displays some of our cookbooks and my favorite owl {who has appeared in lots of photos, but this shelf is where the owl really lives all the time}.

I also decided to add some magnetic strips to the Anthropologie knock off candied letter desk clips that I made so that we can use them on our refrigerator. They look so cute and are more functional for us hanging on the fridge then they were sitting on the desk.

Let's see a couple more side-by-side comparison shots before I leave you today.

What do you think so far? Can you believe how much we transformed the space on such a small budget?

I dare say that the transformation you will see in Part II is even more dramatic that Part I of this reveal! UPDATE: Part 2 of the reveal is now up on the blog! Check it out by clicking here. Here are two before/after previews to wet your appetite!

Trying to make a?quilt for the first time can seem overwhelming! Where do you start, what do you need, and how do you actually get a quilt stitched together? We’ve found the best place to start is by choosing a simple project (like Christa Watson’s Simple Strips quilt above), and breaking?down the process of quiltmaking into steps. Tackle each of these one at a time, and you’ll be finishing your very first quilt before you know it. Learn how to make a quilt from start to finish following each of these steps.

As quilters, we are all about piecing, but we took a little detour to play with these modern ribbons by Amy Butler and wound up with the Woven with Love Pillow.? It is such a simple pillow project that requires very little cutting, and there is still room to embellish and play with the layout as you like for an original look!? We hope you love this pillow tutorial from Fat Quarter Shop!

30 Days has September, April, June and Nov… OH NO! You have 1.5 days to finish your 25 miniature hand-knit woolen mitten advent calendar garland. Or you can make one of these in about an hour and promise to finish the woolen mittens by next Christmas.
