Hello loves, since doing our kitchen reno I haven’t gone into too much detail about the changes we made (minus out DIY shelving and our concrete countertops) so I wanted to take a minute and talk a little bit about how we created our farmhouse kitchen under $600! I’m extremely proud of what we accomplished with so little because whenever I hear about kitchen renos they usually cost between $15k and $20k. Of course this kitchen wasn’t falling apart, we were still able to keep all of the appliances and kitchen cabinets so I guess you could say we gave this space a “facelift”. We started with painting, we used Behr cabinet enamel $32 to change the look of the dated wood and give it a brighter whiter farmhouse feel. We left out the center cabinet over the sink because we then unscrewed that piece and ripped it down to create room for our shelving. After that started on the backsplash. I originally wanted antique tin tiles but that would have been super expensive so we decided on the classic subway tile with grey grout and I loveee how it turned out. Honestly my boyfriend did both the backsplash and countertops by himself and I did all painting and sealing. The box of tiles cost $43 but we ended up having to purchase two so the total cost was $100 for the backsplash including grout. We then started on the infamous Ardex feather finish concrete countertops. I recently did a DIY post on them, click here to check them out. The total cost $68 was which is such a steal for any type of countertop. We then built our shelving above the sink, click here to read about our DIY which cost only $40. The last addition to our little farmhouse kitchen was this amazing farm sink from Ikea. I had been dreaming and searching for one forever and this double apron sink from Ikea was by far the most inexpensive one around! It sells for only $312 which is crazyyy cheap and they sell the single bowl for only $185. How can you go wrong? Once all was said and done came the fun part, DECORATING! It’s still a work in progress but I am so happy with everything! The total cost for our kitchen facelift was roughly $550 and makes such a difference.
