Most of us have a budget unfortunately, and to an extent I like the challenge of working with budgets. Everyone wants boundaries right? Well maybe not everyone. I like to call this project the “Bacon Bungalow.” This space was small, a little dated and was in desperate need of some light. With that being said, I could see so much potential in this house. The kitchen originally had honey stained oak cabinets, a busy backsplash and laminate countertops. Every room had blinds, which made the space dark and closed off. I’m all about privacy but I think you can achieve that without “builder blinds.” Theres a big world of window treatments out there with lots of different options for light control and privacy. It is amazing what new paint, countertops, backsplash, lighting, and window treatments can do. I was able to do all of this and more (like a super cute girls bedroom) for less than what some people spend on a family vacation.
You do not have to have a large budget or all new furnishings. Find the charm in what you have and then go buy a lot of paint! I hope you can see how charming the “Bacon Bungalow” is 🙂
