Modernizing a Tiny Kitchen

I want to do a makeover for my mom's tiny kitchen. It has matching paneling and half wallpaper and small white tiles on floor. I just want to renew and modernize it again.

We did the same project for a friend. We repainted the ceiling, the walls, and the cabinets white to give it a fresh, clean look. Her old cabinets were 1970s, mustard yellow! On the white cabinets we stenciled a yellow pineapple. Then we found some cheap wooden knobs on ebay and painted them yellow (her old cabinet pulls were metal and gross).

I sewed some new curtains and got a cheap new rug. We used art from around her house that had bright colors and brought it into the kitchen. You can find cheap art at thrift stores or garage sales. Here's a look of the finished kitchen! I wish I could upload the "before" shot. Just picture the cabinets 1970's gold color to match the stove and a dingy curtain and faded walls. This is so bright and cheery! She loves it!

Using this site, I was able to update my countertops to look like granite for only about $100. I painted my cabinets, added a few knobs, and my kitchen looks fantastic. I cannot recommend this website's "painting laminate countertops" forum enough. Good luck!
