Updating a kitchen on a budget
Things brighten up so quick and that nasty ole’ thing looks sparkly and brand new. If you like one of these and are curious as to the ‘higher end model’, just take a print-out to your local speciality supplier and they will surely find you a similar looking model.The Moen Kipton faucet is beautiful if you have a softer, more transitional style.
What you don't need is a whole lot of money, as the transformation will cost you a fraction of even the cheapest new cabinets.
Before I talk to you about buying a new sink, the first thing I recommend you do is use some Comet on your existing sink. Here are a few of my fave budget-friendly faucets…and yes, even after that lecture I’m still using big box stores for my examples.
I do this about once every month and I’m AMAZED at the sheen I get! I have a wide-range of lovely (and handsome) blog followers, from Canada, the U. A and beyond and this is the best way to show what is available to the ‘majority’.
If you look at the sides of the cabinets in the before pictures, you can see that they were fading. I honestly don’t know when we started them, but we finished half the kitchen by my daughter’s birthday party that September and didn’t finish the other side until our guests came for Christmas in December. And one day we’ll sell the house and hopefully make a little money on our updates.
The sun was turning them a grayish color and they just looked so ugly against the cabinet fronts. So now I can tell my husband he was right for once!
"Back then, it was still cost-effective for small shops to build them," he recalls.
