Thrifty Home Improvement – $20 Kitchen Makeover, No Paint!

Posted on July 30th, 2012 by Discount Debbie

I know, you’re thinking, “There’s no way only $20 could make a difference throughout an entire kitchen without painting it or doing something to the walls.”

I ask you… when is the last time you noticed the hardware on your cabinets? It’s amazing the impression they make, which isn’t surprising since they’re placed throughout your entire kitchen.

I recently moved into a new rental, and being a Thrifty Diva I chose to get something more affordable, but no doubt, you sacrifice looks a bit to do so. While the place is nice and funcational and safe, some of the fixtures are simply outdated in appearance. With it being a rental, there’s only so much I can do to improve it (especially since the owner wouldn’t approve my request to paint).

Looking at the kitchen, it screamed 80s. The most obvious factor, the wood cabinet pulls.

I got on Amazon.com and found the best deal on these Satin Nickel Cabinet Pulls. Much better!

I removed all of the wood cabinet pulls, placed them in a ziploc bag, tucked them away in the back of an out of reach cabinet, and when I move out someday, I can simply put them back on the cabinets. But I bet even the landlord would prefer my cabinet pulls. 😉

Though if my current cabinet pulls fit my future cabinets someday… psshhh… I’m putting back in the ugly wood ones and taking my pretty, shiny new ones with me!
