When the landlord doesn’t let you paint or replace anything, you have to be creative to make your kitchen brighter and warmer. This homeowner decided to take the doors off the upper cabinets to make the space more open and put up some pretty paper on the back wall, to make the dishes pop. She also opted for framed photos as a cool backsplash, and a nice rug to cover the ugly linoleum. The rest of the money was spent on cheap solutions to keep things organized:

  • tin canisters
  • glass jars
  • dish drainer
  • cutlery caddy

To finish the transformation, Christmas tree lights were reused on top of the cabinets to provide some nice ambient light. Creativity at its best!
