When I first introduced Green Acres (our new-to-us acreage), we shared a ton of our renovation plans, including our hope to add an addition to the side of the home in five-ish years. That addition will smash right though our existing kitchen, meaning I get my dream kitchen in five-ish years. The thing about that plan is…. here’s what our kitchen looks like right now…..

So you can see why I may not want to wait that long! lol. I can’t just leave this kitchen alone for five years! So I’ve decided to do a budget-friendly kitchen makeover so that I can have a beautiful kitchen to live in while I wait for my dream kitchen.

Here are the new Kitchen Decor Plans:

Black and white with pops of wood and green. That’s my vision for the space. That’s a kitchen I can live in happily for the next five years.

If I had all the time and money in the world, I’d replace appliances, paint or replace cabinets, and do some expensive upgrades. But this is a temporary budget-friendly makeover, so I’ve got some other great kitchen decor ideas for this space!

To start with, we are painting our countertops! Did you see the ones above? They don’t really fit with my modern style. Instead of paying big bucks for new countertops, we’re going to try a countertop transformation kit!

Then we’re going to replace the sink, faucet and soap dispenser (thank goodness!) for our kitchen makeover. Starting with this beautiful matte black version

and it’s matching soap dispenser

We’re doing a risky black on black on black design and I’m still not 100% sure how it’s going to turn out! But I love the combination of black and white so I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

We’ll also be adding some gorgeous black bars and hooks for our towels and accessories.

Did you see the backsplash above? Obviously not a dream backsplash for my style. The quickest and easiest way to transform this in a weekend is with a peel and stick tile.

Have you heard of peel and stick tile? This will be another experiment for us because we’ve never tried it before, or seen anyone we know try it! But if it works, it’ll make a huge difference in the space, and take hardly any time to install.

  1. I love your design board for this space, so pretty! I’ve painted countertops before and it came out surprisingly well, I can’t wait to see yours after!

  2. You know how I am with home renos.. aka not always the most “in tune” haha. But I love kitchens! Excited to see how you guys do this!

  3. Loved these reformation tricks. Kitchen can either be a messed place or a beautiful location in the house. I will consider some of these methods during our next renovation.

  4. I used inexpensive (purchased at Walmart) peel n stick tile in my kitchen back home and it worked out just fine. Peel n stick tile has come a long way in the last five years so I am sure you will like it. Are these more costly changes, i.e.: faucet, hardware, things you will be keeping in your dream kitchen? You will need to make sure you have good ventilation while doing the counters and maybe you shouldn’t be around it because of the fumes…I hope you checked with your doctor. Have a fun weekend!

    1. That’s great to hear about the tile! I still don’t know what to expect! lol. Yes, the faucet, sink, hardware, etc we are hoping to keep when we do the dream kitchen later, so they were ok to spend a bit extra on :) And THANK YOU for your concern! The room will definitely be well-ventilated and I have a pretty heavy duty mask to wear just in case – wouldn’t want to take any risks there!
