Flipping through home magazines or scrolling endlessly through Pinterest can make you yearn for a whole house redesign. Who has the time (or money) for that?

Not many people. I don’t!

But still, I like to do a little renovating now and then. Most of us need to take it one room at a time and one project at a time. Today I’m going to talk about how you can inject a bit of your personality into your kitchen with some budget-friendly crafts.

Kitchen Crafts on a Budget

Kitchens can be one of the most expensive rooms to remodel. The most obvious ways to change things are by painting a wall, the cabinets, or a light fixture. But even those cost money.

However, if you don’t have a large budget, there are still a lot of ways to update your kitchen. If you put a little time and effort into some DIY décor and organization crafts, you can get a new look without spending a lot of money.

I’ve come up with a list of thrifty kitchen crafts – some big (like a range hood update) and some small (like new refrigerator magnets). Scroll down to check them out and then get started on your new kitchen!
