DIY Additions for Your Kitchen
The kitchen is the heart of your home so giving it a little upgrade is the least you can do this summer. Spruce up your kitchen with a few DIY project ideas.
Start off with the walls of your kitchen. You can choose to add a peel-and-stick backsplash with mosaic tiles or leave your walls exposed, it’s all up to your personal feelings. The peel-and-stick kit is easy and pre-mixed so all you have to do is pick the color and pattern and apply. Keeping your project in the area of the walls, insert a roll of chalkboard paper to make a custom measuring chart. This will give your kitchen a modernized feeling that you can customize the content on a whim.
Try your hand at painting by adding a different color to the cabinets. This weekend project gives your kitchen a whole new look and adds value to your home. Not only can you paint the actual cabinets also try painting or switching out the knobs or drawer pulls.
The faucets can also get a fresh coat of bronze spray for a complete quick makeover that will surely give the sink area a brand new look. You can take this same initiative with appliances that are on display but instead of spray paint cover them with a sheet of stainless steel contact paper.
