Our kitchen needed a lot of help when we moved into our 100 year old farmhouse. Previous people who lived here had ripped up the floors and left nothing but cheap particle board down, the glass in the built in cabinet was broken out. We had to fix it up on a budget of $200 and that including new flooring.
I turned a multipurpose/junk closet into a craft closet in one day using items I already had around the house. A little paint to freshen it up, some wallpaper tacked to the wall, a media cart I found curbside and spray painted and some containers made it all fresh and neatly organized.
