Budget-Friendly Decorating Ideas For The Kitchen

The kitchen is one of the most important and also intriguing parts of the house so decorating it is not a walk in the park. This being said, it doesn’t mean that it all has to turn into a highly expensive process. There are plenty of ways in which you can make your kitchen look charm and stay within budget.

1. Customized cutting board.

Make your own customized cutting board. It’s just a way to mix it up a little bit. Get a piece of untreated wood (maple and ash hardwood are great for daily use) and start by drawing your design. You can make rooftop cutting board which is a very simple project. Cut out the design, sand the edges and apply mineral oil.{found on apartmenttherapy}.

Another nice way to add your own twist to the kitchen décor is with a handmade towel holder. You can get a piece of brass rod from the hardware store and fold it to create your own design. This triangular shape is easy to make and also very practical but feel free to experiment.{found on bambulablogi}.

Make a colorful kitchen clock using wooden spoons, a round piece of wood (perhaps a cutting board) and a clock kit. Paint the spoons different colors. Then prime the main wood piece, measure out 12 even spaces and paint each of the hour areas with craft paint. Drill a hole in the center and add the clock kit. Attach the spoons with glue.{found on abeautifulmess}.

Add a little bit of color to your kitchen with these neon containers. To make them you need storage jars, neon string and glue or tape. First choose a color combo. Start by attaching a piece of string to the container. Begin wrapping it around tightly and when you’re done with that color, add a ead of glue and cut the string. Continue with another color.{found on papernstitchblog}.

Make your own paper towel holder using a copper pipe and a piece of wood. Decide on a shape and size and cut the wood accordingly. Then drill a hole into the base (at the center). Make sure the copper pipe fits. Apply glue and allow it to dry for a few hours.{found on almostmakesperfect}.
