As I mentioned in my last post I wanted to go into a little more detail on how I wallpapered, painted and then distressed our kitchen island. I am going to guess that the total cost to change up our kitchen island was less than $6.oo. I used paint colors that we had left over from other projects and less than half of a roll of paintable bead board wallpaper. This is a great option if you have a kitchen island that doesn’t get a lot of abuse and needs a makeover – it looks pretty and the price is certainly right! You can read all about my budget kitchen makeover here, but here is the skinny on the kitchen island itself. A simple paint glaze I used added a great distressed finish to add a ton of character to our kitchen.
Today I am bringing you a super budget friendly way to completely transform your kitchen for about $12.00. Need an inexpensive, quick fix for a so-so kitchen? Well here it is. Textured, paintable wallpaper turns a drab back splash from boring to polished in just a few easy steps. No power tools, no expensive supplies, and no contractor bills. Plus this is an easy way to change things up without a permanent damage to the walls that would be expensive to remove and replace like tile back splashes. This stay at home mom did it all on her own after bedtime while her kids were fast asleep and you can do it too.
Make a new chicken feeder look like an antique using white vinegar. I was able to make this uniquely beautiful plate holder for my kitchen with just that. Vinegar has so many amazing uses, but this one is for the crafty at heart.
