Kitchen Makeover on a Budget
Learn how one homeowner and a creative friend transformed this kitchen with money to spare.
A Magical TransformationEver dreamed of starring in one of those home-improvement television shows where a financially savvy designer magically transforms your home? Well, we made the dream of a new kitchen happen for one lucky homeowner--Diane Smith of McKinney, Texas. The only stipulation? That we get to cover the transformation from beginning to end.
Though Diane is a talented faux-finish artist, we enlisted the help of her good friend and one of our favorite Texas designers, Jennifer Spak. We gave the pair a budget of $2,500 and a time frame of a few short months. We knew the outdated kitchen didn't stand a chance against this dynamic duo.
We think you'll agree that the result is incredible. The kitchen is filled with ideas, and Diane and Jennifer even came in under budget. Take some of their great ideas home with you.
