MHCT&M: DIY Kitchen Updates

Hello everyone! 
How are you on this last Friday of January? 
Can you believe that February is already around the corner?! I sure can't! 

Before February does show up, it is time for one last Must Have Craft Tip post full of ideas for your kitchen.


My husband and I have updated a few kitchens in our time together and we have both hired out some of the work but have also done a lot of it ourselves to make our space more to our liking and up to date.
Today, I have rounded up ideas to help you update your kitchen space that you can accomplish no matter the budget. If you are willing to put in the time and elbow grease, many of these can be completed by you!


Whether you want to just do a few small updates or redo many parts of your kitchen, you are bound to find some of these ideas great to implement in your own house.

 Paint can be your best friend when it comes to a budget and kitchen updates! 
Give your cabinets a fresh coat of paint to brighten up the space and did you know that you can also paint your counter tops if you don't have it in your budget to get brand new ones? Well, you can! 
 
 Here's another great example of using paint. Don't have a budget for a new tile backsplash? How about painting a pattern to mimic a backsplash? No one has to know it is only paint!




Don't want to go the paint route for a backsplash? 
How about you try using peel and stick tile or floor planks instead? It is definitely less messy than putting all the grout on the wall too.



Another update that is quick and can be relatively cheap is updating your hardware. You can buy new ones or just paint your old ones but it is amazing what this one little change can do to your space.

 Don't forget to look up in your space! 
Ceiling treatments can add so much to your space. Whether it be adding planks, painting it a fun color or pattern, or make it a coffered ceiling, don't forget about the fifth wall above your head.



And to go along the lines of looking up, how about spaces down low. 
I love this pop of color under the cabinets for a fun, unexpected pop of color and you won't believe how she created it. It is NOT paint!

Tired of all the closed doors in your kitchen? Take some of them off for a more open look then take some colorful paint or fabric and add it into the backs of the cabinets for a fun pop of color. You can easily update the look or even put the doors back on when you get tired of this look.



Here's another idea for a more open, exposed look. Take down a set of cabinets all together and add open shelves to show off your dishware and other kitchen treasures.

Lights are another great way to give your space a quick facelift along with adding a little flair to your space.


If you want to update your counters and are feeling a little adventurous, you can always try to create your own concrete countertops! They do look great when they are complete!

Have builder grade cabinets that you want to add more detail too? 
Add crown molding or other molding/bead board to the cabinets before giving them a few coat of paint. Once they are complete, no one would know that they weren't that way originally!

You can also ass more detail by adding posts to the end of a cabinet. This would also allow you to extend your counter a little more for extra work space on top.

One last simple detail would be to add feet to the bottom of your cabinets to make them look more like a piece of furniture. This is a great idea to do on an island to make it stand out from the rest.


Have you updated a kitchen?
What is your favorite thing to change that makes your space feel brand new?!


Stay tuned for a whole new topic next month! :)

MHCT&M: Kitchen Organizing Hacks

Hello, my friends! We are back for another week of must-have kitchen ideas and today I am sharing organizing hacks with you. 
 
 
Whether or not you are on the Marie Kondo kick, organizing your kitchen at the start of the year is such a great idea. Getting rid of things you don't need or use and finding a place for the things you do need and use makes it easier to find things in your kitchen. I always feel better when I know where things are, when they are easily accessible, and when they are somewhat tidy. 
So today let's take a look at these 10 must-have kitchen organizing hacks you will love! 
 
 
Organizing your kitchen is easy with these hacks! 
 
There are MANY kitchen hacks across the internet, but my focus was really on practical hacks that I would actually use and find helpful.

 Create a kitchen charging station for electronics.

  Use magazine racks to hold your canned foods.

  Use hooks inside of cabinets for more storage.

 Use a cake plate to store soaps and sponges.

  Put bulk food into jars and baskets and label with vinyl.

Aren't these kitchen hacks great? 
They are all very simple to implement into your own kitchen and will hopefully provide you with some organization that makes you feel good to be in the kitchen! 
 My biggest tip is to pick one that looks like it might work for you, and go from there. 
 
Okay, friends! Enjoy your weekend organizing that kitchen a bit and we'll see you back here, same time same place, for more must-have kitchen ideas!
