Kitchen Progress (Winter 2017 Kirklands IG feature)

We worked our butts off in this house. We redid our kitchen twice in the last three years to get it to where it is now. The last renovation was $500… this one was a lot more but we saved up tons and waited a long time in between projects. You do not need a big budget to get the kitchen you want. You just need two things… hard work capability and time. Salvaging, repurposing, saving searching, and creativity are also very important towards a kitchen renovation with a small budget. We salvaged old cabinets and wood. We repurposed shelving. We searched for the cheapest deals on a sink and subway tile. We made shiplap out of plywood. We splurged on paint though because in a kitchen you should always buy paint that resists stains, mold, and scuffing. Everything else was work ethic. We believe when we want something, work hard and you’ll get it. We sure did work hard. And we almost have it. Still have the whole other side of the kitchen to complete but for the moment, I am deeply in love. & its not just with that wonderful, amazing, talented husband of mine 😉
