And the cabinets are only 10 years old, so they were not worth replacing , cheap though they may be.

Since we chose to rent out our house, we wanted to be realistic about a few things.

There will be painting, installing (new sink, faucet and lighting) and new accessories. It’s suppose to start snowing on Saturday so it’s the perfect time to do some indoor projects.

Speaking of indoor projects, I recently updated my kitchen with new lighting. The lights come with directions and once you turn off the electricity it’s a simple step-by-step process. Before I show you the new lighting up close, let’s take a look back at the lighting that came with the house.

Besides a few of the things I showed you that we did just to live in the space, I also tiled the back splash including a half wall as an accent for more interest and lastly adding some architectural character to the existing cabinets. We received our new family room rug the same day that we had the carpets cleaned, so while waiting for the carpets to dry, I rolled it out in our living room. Okay so what not a good before and after with out a hideous before?

There we are few other things that I did to make the kitchen look a little better in itself and in our space. Added some hardware (I went for the color black to match the grout and appliances) 2. All of a sudden the tile in the kitchen was not as offensive, because it matched something else… Okay this is not super hideous (although you need to see how truly disgusting it was…) Cleaning up the mess after buying our house: " alt="" src=" width="500" height="375" border="0" data-jpibfi-post-excerpt="" data-jpibfi-post-url=" data-jpibfi-post-title="Kitchen Review and Reveal" data-jpibfi-src=" data-pin-url=" data-pin-media=" Small repair and updates over time (before the actual makeover): Installing a subway tile back splash (and tutorial): Updating the Cabinets Tutorial (without painting of course): Well, what do you think?
