8 Inspiring DIY Kitchens

8 Inspiring DIY Kitchens 1

I have big news to share! Are you ready?…My husband and I are officially Homeowners! We just recently closed on our first home and couldn’t be happier! It is a cute little ranch in a tiny town in Minnesota. (Yay! I’m finally home again to the great state of MN!) My husband will now be commuting to work, but we wanted to move closer to family as we are starting our own little family with a baby girl due in June. Whew! A house and a baby within months! Are we crazy?!

Well we haven’t gone crazy yet, have been super busy making updates to our new place. Before we move in, we are painting about every surface imaginable. Walls, trim, cabinets…you name it, we are painting it.

So, while we are busy-as-bees trying to get everything done, I decided to share with you all some of my inspirations for what I am doing with our kitchen. I have always loved a white and bright kitchen and decided to paint the existing cabinets.

Below are some great tips and tutorials from some very talented ladies who have re-done their own kitchens. Enjoy the prettiness and I can’t wait to show you what we have been up to!

    We painted our kitchen white a decade ago and I still love it (although sometimes I fantasize about what it would look like if I painted the lower cupboards a dark, moody colour). I’m a huge fan of painted kitchen cabinets – thanks for sharing at To Grandma’s House We Go link party 😀

    Visiting via Best of the Weekend link party. I just finished having my own kitchen remodeled so your post obviously intrigued me. We are just old enough that we didn’t have to DIY it this time but have certainly gone that route in the past. I loved Befedagin’s kitchen. Gorgeous.

    Congratulations. Owning your first home is so exciting. I’ve owned several and the thrill is always there with each new one. A house becomes a home when you put your own stamp on it. What fun you will have.

    Hi I’m stopping by from the Link party and I love some of these kitchens. We recently moved into our home in Nov and I finally have my dream kitchen. We’ve both gained about 10 lbs and I’m bankrupting us with the groceries haha, but I love it. Congrats on the new home and especially on your little girl. Mine is 24 and is the best thing that ever happened to me, yours will be too!

    Having just finished a complete kitchen gut job that took us months, I was inspired by these makeovers and the end results. Spectacular! I especially loved the DIY by Dwell Beautiful. The color of those cabinets? I die. Loved it. 😀 Visiting via 21 Rosemary Lane’s Linky party
