Kitchen Remodel on a Dime

Photos: Michael J. Lee

I saw this really cute and cheap kitchen remodel over on Shelterpop. The author claims she did it for $600 (although the new stainless appliances were gotten in some kind of "trade".) In any case, I thought it was really smart and well done, though it's not my style. Bead-board wallpaper, cabinet painting and removal of popcorn ceilings went a long way to update the space.

On a side note, the commenters preferred the drab "before". Who knew?

The point of this post is that I am motivated to remove the popcorn ceiling in our kitchen as a baby step towards a remodel. We're going to need to DIY as much as we can and the ceiling can be done now, even if we can't do a total demo for awhile.

Off to scrape a sample into a plastic bag and pray it's not filled with asbestos.
