Cool Tips for the Home
Great kitchen makeover...can't believe this is the same room! New lighting, paint cabinets and add hardware, new wall color, new back splash, paint island cabinet black, change out white appliances for stainless, add trim on ceiling where box light used to be. This is much less expensive than a complete gut and redo.
Great kitchen makeover

A pseudo shelf that made it possible to arrange all the cleaning supplies in a way you can easily see what you have!
Curtain rod to hold bottles.
Hot glue flowers onto a lampshade to dress it up!

De-tarnish all your silver at once... line your sink with aluminum foil, add 1/2 c table salt, 1/2 c. baking soda, fill with hot water, then dump in all your silver! Let sit for about 30 min. The tarnish will transfer to the foil!

For my paint, I simply picked up a few sample containers of paint. $2/a piece, and more than enough paint to cover my little 2×2′ background. One sort of a medium greenish brown color (called Truffle), white, and then two shades of turquoise. My plan was to make use of both sides of the board, have one painted basic white, and the other a pretty bright turquoise.

Step 7: Distress the cabinets by chipping back corners. Use steel wool to rub the areas covered with wax or petroleum jelly to allow stain to show through. Step 8: Apply an aging glaze, and let dry according to manufacturer's instructions. Step 9: Apply three coats of a clear sealer to cabinets and doors, allowing to dry between coats.
