Before & After: Kitchen Makeover for Under $2000

3,273 Views
See our makeover!
Compared to our previous place, the kitchen in our current home was a dream when we first moved in. Two people could cook in the kitchen at once! The appliances were made during our lifetime! There were no baby cockroaches under our sink! We soaked up the all that luxury for about a year before all that wood finally got on our nerves.
Time: 1 Months Cost: $1900 Difficulty: Medium

We began to dream of stainless steel replacing the off-white stove and a refrigerator that actually fit our kitchen. Our goal was to make it light and airy–a challenge with black granite countertops, to be sure. My Pinterest board was filled with gorgeous open shelving, white subway tile, and lots and lots of brass.

However, we had a teeny tiny budget. I’m talking miniscule. We certainly couldn’t afford to remodel (sigh), so we came up with a budget and a plan:
Paint the cabinets
Add a backsplash
Replace the appliances
Switch out the hardware
Update the light fixture
Create some open shelving
….all for under $2,000!
