The kitchen is the heart of the home, and the space in which everyone seems to end up gathering. This book, from the editors of the popular Do It Yourself magazine, gives a wide variety of ideas for spicing up a kitchen, from tiling a backsplash to adding window treatments to increasing storage and functionality.
kitchenHATE this look. Hate the wood, hate the matching floor, hate how the cabinets are plain with no decoration or hardware, hate how there is no variance in the cabinetry design (all the same shape, no open shelves or glass to break things up)
Dark and dreary kitchen gets DIY white painted cabinets, new pendant lighting, and updated trim (but on a budget!) at 11 Magnolia Lane. The finished product was featured in BH&G Kitchen+Bath Makeovers magazine, too.
