my DIY high
There's nothing quite like stepping back and saying, "Yes, I made that."
When you're a hoarder and you own a tiny home (it's not actually that tiny!) you have to get creative with storage and organization. I knew I wanted a smaller home for several reasons: a) it's less to clean and b) we couldn't afford anything bigger
I wasn't super happy with the layout of our house. We live in a "cookie cutter" neighborhood with three layouts of the most adorable houses ever. One of the three layouts has an AMAZINGLY OPEN kitchen. The other two...do not. They have "galley" kitchens. Now that I'm thinking about it there are definitely more than three layouts to the houses in my neighborhood...
Anyway, I found a GREAT step by step tutorial on how to raise cabinets and add a shelf. Now I LOVE my kitchen.
Here's the original tutorial from Domestic Imperfection:
Basically, I copied their entire kitchen. I so badly want the butcher block counter tops, but I just can't justify ripping out our granite tile. Or our stone backslash. It makes me very sad, but I've learned to deal with it.
Photos from the home listing:
Those cabinets look like an awesome white/grey color. They were not. They were definitely baby blue and weird. A good attempt, but just...no.
MY KITCHEN NOW:
Hi, I'm Rachel.
I pick up other people's garbage and take it home.
Whatcha lookin for?
