Creating A Kitchen You Love On A Budget

When I bought my current home it was definitely what would be described as a fixer upper. I had to completely remodel the kitchen, which wasn't much more than a shell when I moved in, but I was on a tight budget.

I started this blog to share what I learned and exchange tips with other home improvement enthusiasts. I hope you enjoy my blog.
