Does your kitchen need a serious overhaul? I thought I needed a complete remodel on mine, too, but my budget simply precluded doing any major home improvement projects. After spending far too many hours on Pinterest looking for projects I did not have the money for, I found some more doable things in the name of kitchen makeover ideas that worked perfectly for what I needed. Cheap but showy projects that truly allow you to feel your kitchen got a makeover, these tutorials show you exactly how to creatively get some awesome new looks in your dining room and kitchen areas. From new DIY countertop ideas to paint techniques to backsplashes and tile, you will find some cool ideas to add to your weekend project list.
DIY Kitchen Makeover Ideas
1. Paint Cabinets Without Sanding
You can paint your cabinets without sanding them! Get effective results with primer and paint and a little help from Ugly Duckling House. I definitely enjoyed this post. I am planning on doing my cupboards soon too so I’m looking for any hints. Really helpful tips!
2. Install A Backsplash
Add life to your kitchen with a tile backsplash. There are many options, including mosaics on mesh backing for easy installation. There are so many options these days, from glass mosaics, to classic subway tiles, to peel and stick versions anyone can do. Save hundreds of dollars by doing it on your own and by following along with the complete tutorial from The Budget Decorator.
3. DIY Overlay Concrete Countertops
I love the overlay technique which allows you not to have to deal with large amounts of poured concrete, too. The thought of that just frightened me to much to even try! However, you too will learn that is not necessary. Check out this awesome step by step Youtube video tutorial and learn how to make concrete countertops like a pro!
4. DIY Planked Peninsula With Corbels
What a fabulous project, it certainly looks great! I specifically adore the color and I think this would look great when I eventually get round to painting the cupboards in our utility room. Loving the way it turned out. Thanks to this inspiring post from The Happie Housie Porch.
