Gemma is saving up for a major kitchen overhaul, but does that mean she has to live with a kitchen she hates in the meantime? No! And neither do you! If your kitchen has a case of the hum-drums, try a quick fix like she did: slap a little paint on your cabinets and some peel and stick tile over that lifeless linoleum, and shabang! Your kitchen will be sleek and chic in less than a week! Or probably only an afternoon to be more precise, but 'week' rhymed.
Grand total was less than $200, and most of that went toward the hardware which will be used in the future remodel. See more on her site The Sweetest Digs.
And are you one of the many non-American's who often emails me wondering why Americans like our white kitchens so much? I don't have an answer for you. But I do have this black kitchen makeover from Rebekah at DeBlog as a sort of peace treaty truce thing. I think because there were SO MANY fake, shiny, tacky wood cabinets used in American homes built over the last decade or so that we've finally decided to just give our eyeballs a rest and paint those suckers. Just my theory. What say you?
