Kitchen Reveal!!!

1 kitchen + 8 weeks + 6 DIY projects = MY ONE ROOM CHALLENGE REVEAL!!!


When I set out to transform this bland 80’s builder-grade kitchen, my timeline was tight and budget was even tighter, but as I ALWAYS say… “Great style has little to do with how much money you have, but rather how creative you can be with your budget”.


So, that’s exactly what I did!  I rolled up my sleeves, got VERY creative with paint, and gave nearly EVERY SINGLE SQUARE INCH a fresh coat to create a no-demo-reno “modern cucina”.


Before (obviously ;)












Can you spot all of the DIY differences?  Click the links below to see a step-by-step guide for each project!


Melamine Cabinets… are the same, but got some DIY trim detail, new hardware, and PAINT!




Laminate Countertops… are the same, but got a fresh coat of Mica fleck PAINT!



Ceramic Floor Tiles… are the same, but got transformed with a stencil and PAINT!



Backsplash… got covered up with faux brick panels, plaster and PAINT!



Shelves… were customized with stain and Metal Effects PAINT!



Bench… was upcycled using Chalked PAINT!



This project was the perfect example of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”… just PAINT IT!  For more information about any of the Rust-Oleum products and colours I used for this project, click here.
