This week I am going to share five cheap and pretty ways to spruce up your kitchen. If you are like us, you spend about 85% of your waking time at home in your kitchen. And when you entertain, it’s where people end up gathering, am I right? So why not take a few minutes this week and give it some love.
I am not talking about a new backsplash or new appliances here peeps. I am talking a few minutes and a few bucks.
Super simple ideas that anyone can do!
First up, I am going to show you how I added a no-sew curtain above our sink. No sew you ask? Yes, I used my hot glue gun. (My mother is probably cringing as she reads this! Sorry mom!) Although it’s not my favorite thing to do, I am not afraid of a sewing machine. However, I don’t own one. My mom, who taught me how to sew, has one and she is kind enough to let me borrow hers when I need it.
But since I didn’t want to wait to get my hands on her sewing machine, I just pulled out my hot glue gun.
When there is a will there is a WAY!
As I was purging last week, I ended up getting side tracked and made a few updates to our kitchen. It wasn’t a bad thing actually because I ended up helping the purge pile. You see, I had this fabric sitting in my stash. I can’t remember what I originally bought it for (it’s from Hobby Lobby), but it was just going to waste sitting on a shelf. I also had a tension rod that I previously used in the nursery. So for me, this project was free. For you, it may cost $10-$15.(tension rod is about $6, and depending on the fabric you choose the price will vary.)
To rewind a bit, here was my kitchen window before:
And here it is with the new valance. I love how much color it adds to the kitchen.
