Bright Family Kitchen DIY
A young mom to three kids (including a baby) managed to spend her days renovating a house. All by herself. She is comfortable using power tools, and gets the job done! These pictures show the amazing before and after she has managed to achieve.
I found and purchased everything I could on kijiji…Seriously, I bought the yellow table for $25 with 4 chairs. I was able to sell the chairs for the same price so the table was free. I used some spare primer and paint I had in the basement. The new chairs from kijij were $10 a chair!
I made the faux roman shade from some leftover fabric I had from a previous project. I would love to get some pretty fabric that is colourful but that will have to wait until I find the perfect one/
I bought both the dishwasher and stove on clearance for killer prices. I mean seriously low…I still haven’t found a fridge for a good enough clearance yet so it will have to wait.
I painted the toaster yellow so it could be a nice bright accent in my kitchen and it worked like a charm. I made most of the artwork in the kitchen. We got the sweet VW sign for free. We bought the Dr. Pepper sign on Vancouver Island a couple of summers ago so it was just hanging out in the basement.
I got the wood counter tops at ikea. They were on clearance as they are no longer carrying this exact type. I finished them in minwax stain and 5 coats of waterlox topcoat.
I used my Rona money for the breadboard, trim, track lights and some other projects around the house.
