The next project on my kitchen remodel to-do list was putting in new floors. The current floor was a beige linoleum that was actually new when I bought the house. The floor had a matte finish with a little texture in it, which made it look okay for linoleum, but it held dirt so bad! I would scrub and scrub, and it still looked dingey. I was so happy to start ripping it up!
One of the plans that I have always had for my kitchen remodel was to remove the dishwasher that was added into my cupboards. The opening was pretty sloppy, and the placement of the cheapie dishwasher bothered me. It didn’t feel right for the space and I don’t use a dishwasher so it was all just an eyesore.
After completing my subway tile backsplash, the next step of my kitchen remodel was to paint the walls. I previously shared that I wanted to keep the minty retro green color but to lighten and brighten it a little bit to give my kitchen a brighter look.
One of my favorite parts of my kitchen remodel is my subway tile back splash. It is so bright and timeless, which was the goal of my kitchen remodel. The other benefit to subway tile is that it is really cheap– I got my tile on sale for $0.17 a tile! The entire backsplash cost less than $60.
The backsplash is also relatively easy to do yourself. You will need a tile saw, and maybe someone with experience using one, but the rest even a novice can do themselves!
Tis the season to wrap all of the special gifts you’ve purchased for your friends and family. I believe that the gift wrap is almost as important as the gift to make it feel special and given with love. Here are some new and clever ways to make your presents look extra pretty and feel extra special this year!
Monochromatic. It looks even cooler in this neutral color palette!
After months of waiting, my quartz countertops are finally installed! I figured after not hearing from the company for weeks they would call and want to install them right away, and that was exactly what happened..
