    This is lovely. I found this an thought what the heck I will see what she has done that is so different from everyone else. To my delight and surprise you actually made sense and most likely saved the most money with your planning and smart buys. We are getting ready to redo ours and I will use some of your tricks and tips to help.

  2. It was a good idea to add under-cabinet trim pieces to make your kitchen look that much better! I want to get new cabinets for my kitchen but I don’t have a lot of money. Do you have an idea on how to get cheap cabinets?

      Thank you!! I def think Ikea has the best value cabinets out there, but painting your existing cabinets is always an option. I’ve seen some really amazing renos on tight budgets that completely transform the existing cabinets with paint, hardware etc.. New lowers and open shelving on top is always less expensive too if you have other storage options or are a minimalist in the kitchen! Also think outside the box, like a vintage table as an island or incorporate other furniture or second-hand pieces!

  3. Excellent explanation. Anyone can easily comprehend since it’s simple & focused. Keep up the great work!
