Happy Wednesday!

Today I will be writing about how we remodeled our kitchen on a budget, but before I do that here are the before pictures of our kitchen when we first purchased our home.

Kitchen Before Kitchen Table Before

This is how we remodeled our kitchen with an affordable budget.


White is still my favorite choice for kitchen cabinet colour. It is timeless and fresh looking and can look great with many styles. Painting the ceiling can really transform a room. I chose BM Harbour Haze at 50% strength. This paint colour on the ceiling makes the kitchen so much brighter, especially during our long winter months.

Kitchen Shelves

Many of my kitchen inspirations usually involve some form of open shelving. It makes the kitchen feel open and airy while still being functional.
