Since we are spending so much time indoors these days, my husband and I thought it would be a great time to finally upgrade our kitchen. And we put together a list of fast kitchen upgrades that you can do all by yourself. Keep reading below to check them out (and find the tutorials!).
Kitchen Upgrades: On A Budget
Painted Kitchen Cabinets
If you have kitchen cabinets that have seen better days, you could upgrade them easily with the help of a little paint. All you need to do is give your kitchen cabinets a good sanding before painting and you will have a totally revolutionized kitchen. This tutorial of mine should help you figure out how to do it.
Painted Kitchen Tile
If you have tiled countertops, backsplashes, or flooring, that you just don’t seem to love anymore, you can redo the tile with NO demo or grouting work. All you need is the correct kind of paint, a super fabulous stencil and a few days of your weekend. Learn how to paint your own tile with the help of this tutorial.
Total Kitchen Remodel (Under $160!)
$160 goes a long way. Check out this post of mine to see how I remodeled my kitchen for under $160. Pssst…this method is going to require that you paint..A LOT. But paint is one of the most inexpensive items at the hardware store. Best to just use what you’ve got, right?

Farmhouse Kitchen Table
Build yourself a brand new kitchen table using scrap wood and this easy tutorial. You can have this new table built in virtually no time at all! And even better, it costs less than $100 to make. It would be so much fun to gather with your family around a brand new kitchen table. I know that I would love something just like this!
