Decorate Your Kitchen On A Budget. Bored with your kitchen? You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to innovate a little. Just follow these tips and you’ll make big changes on a small budget. Need a colorful window treatment? Just buy a cheap basswood shade and paint it a bright color. You can use a partially dry brush and paint at random for an aged look.
Paint your walls in a bright, sunny yellow and randomly paint a few areas with a darker yellow, deep peach, and terracotta. Mix the paint with the enamel solution and wipe each coat with a damp cloth before the paint dries.
Use a dry brush to repaint your old cabinets with a few coats of paint. You can buy car masking tape and stick it right under the mold for an attractive accent. Use fabric boards with hook and loop fasteners to create a baseboard around your under counter area. You can cover old appliances like dishwashers and old cabinets with a new colorful curtain that hangs below the edge of the counter.
Use mismatched dishes and cups to decorate a stylish shelf on your kitchen wall. Brightly colored plates and hanging teacups make pretty decorations. Use your precious family photos to decorate bookshelves or nooks and crannies. You can use inexpensive photo frames and a pretty shelf to show off your home and life.
If your countertop isn’t what it used to be, remove the old surface and replace it with colored, mismatched tiles that you can get without buying anything at the discount store. If your countertop is uneven, use a piece of plywood to smooth the surface before tiling.
If your refrigerator has better days, ask a local supplier to cut a blackboard to fit the front and stick it directly onto the surface of your refrigerator. Use a bulletin board as a border and you’ll have your very own personal notebook center right on the fridge.
Decorating your kitchen doesn’t have to be expensive. With a little imagination and a little work, you can turn even the most boring kitchen into a work of art. Colorful curtains and paint will make a huge difference in any kitchen. It doesn’t matter how large or dark the space is.
