Kitchen Update Plan
Sometimes I wonder if we should have a bought a brand new house! It sounds pretty cool renovating a house, making your little updates, and so on, but darn do costs add up rather quickly.
The next room I’m planning on updating is the kitchen. I think it will really lift up our house once the updates are finished. I have made a budget for our kitchen plan.
Here is what our current kitchen looks like:
Here is the look I am going for:
Instead of the gray cabinets, I will be painting the cabinets white.
- Paint kitchen wall with Sherwin Williams Raindrop color – $50
- Paint kitchen cabinets – In-laws donating a gallon of white paint
- Pendant lights – $75
- Bamboo Shade – $85
- Tile Backsplash for 50 sq. feet – $300
- Cabinet Hardware – $300
- Extra Buffer for costs I have not account for – $100
Total Planned Cost – $910
I am going to use a West Elm coupon when I buy the paint. $15 off a $75 purchase. I am, also, waiting for a Sherwin Williams sale to save even more. I missed the last sale two weeks ago. 40%! It was sweet.
I found these awesome mason jar lights. The plan is to buy 3 lights to place over the kitchen window. Make sure to sign up for the 5% off coupon.
I’m in love with Young House Love’s choice of penny tile. It doesn’t break the bank like other options I have been looking at and I think it’s going to look great.
Getting the paint on sale and painting the wall is the first task! It’s slow progress because I procrastinate every weekend. But, also, I’m waiting for sales so I can snatch up things. Every penny counts when updating a kitchen on a thrifty budget.
