Restyle Your Life Challenge Day 19: Spruce Up Your Kitchen

Posted by   + Show Post

The kitchen is often the center of many family activities! Adding just a few new (affordable) pieces can really brighten the mood. Today's challenge is to treat yourself to a new kitchen item!

Here are a few things you can do to spruce up your kitchen.

  • Add a centerpiece to your kitchen table.
  • Buy a new set of kitchen curtains.  
  • Get a new mug for you!
  • Add a couple new kitchen towels.

   

Do you spend a lot of time in your kitchen? How often do you buy new things for your kitchen?

Do buying new spices count. I ran out of a couple and had to restock.

Although I will say only a couple weeks ago I bought new dish rags and hand towels. And my grandmother bought me a cutting board since I didn't have one and it annoyed her whole she stayed here that I didn't have one.

I ALWAYS get a new centerpiece for the island... it's always simple... like a place mat with a candle and fun pieces to surround it. Sometimes I don't even buy. I'll use a vase from the dollar store, put pine cones from last year in, and surround with tree trimmings and a couple of ornaments or ribbon.

I spend a LOT of time in my kitchen. Unfortuntely, I can't afford to buy anything for it right now. I did make new curtains for it recently, from some material I had laying around, and I use candles & fruit for a table center piece most of the time.

the best i can do to spruce up my kitchen is to deep clean it, move the stove clean the curtains and table cloth as opposed to replacing them, wipe everything down, pull all the junk out of every drawer and cupboard and re organize them. clean out the fridge/freezer,  etc..
