A Kitchen Update

Back in september, husband and i set out to do a little kitchen "update." We limited ourselves to $500 and a whole lot of creativity. We figured out that with $500, we could do the following:

trim out our cabinets
update the cabinet hardware
paint (walls and cabinets)
replace the backsplash 

Well, i am very happy to say that more than 6 months later, our little kitchen "update" is complete. It's not perfect, but it is vastly better than what it was before. I am so proud of kevin and all of his handiwork that went into this. He pretty much did it entirely by himself (I helped a little) and did it all while going to school full time and being full time daddy to our little man. 

Here are some before pictures:

Appliances were definitely not in the budget this time around, but we had to get a new dishwasher when we first moved in last year. hopefully, we'll be able to update the oven/stove and refrigerator to stainless steal in the near future so all of our appliances match as well.

And here are the photos post-update!

You can see that a little went a long way here. While we didn't have it in our budget to make drastic changes, I feel like these updates took our little kitchen from 1985 and brought it into the 21st century. Cheers to home improvement!

Two things we would have done had we stayed in the house. Switched out the light fixtures and painted the countertops.
