Modern Farmhouse Kitchen Holidays 2107 Stenciled Backsplash
20 Budget Backsplash Ideas

Here is a tour of our kitchen which we remodeled a little at a time, for a grand total of around $4000. Since the house is open concept, any decorating decisions I made in the kitchen would influence the rest of the house. Our house is only eleven years old, and the kitchen had “good bones” — so I couldn’t justify ripping out new cabinets. So I opted to paint them and add low-cost embellishments a little at a time, based on my time and available budget. All of the tutorials, paint colors and sources for the decor are listed below.

  1. I just bought a Ryan home with the same floorplan, but the kitchen is different. It doesn’t have the island, and has a wall separating the kitchen from the living room. I want to take down the wall, but I needed to see what it would look like first. Your photos are perfect! And I love your style. Great inspiration for me. :)

    What exactjy is the script backsplash? It’s so pretty and unique!

  3. How does the paint hold up on your cabinets? We are thinking of painting ours but worried they will scratch and not look good after awhile. Did you just paint the front or the inside too?

    How are the wreaths held onto the back of the cabinet doors that are hung by wide ribbon? I really love that look!

    I am using the Deco Art for my kitchen remodel based on your blog. I now have a full appreciation of the time and effort it took you to redo your kitchen. Wowza, it’s taking FOREVER doing it on my own. I’m seeing the light at the end and after considering all things, I want to use the sprayer on the doors and drawer fronts. Do you recall the water to paint ratio you used in that sprayer?

    1. How exciting! This is still my favorite paint after all of the different attempts at painting my kitchen. The only reason I switched paints in our new house is because I wanted a different color that what DecoArt offered. For water I didn’t use a ratio as much as I eyed it up. I added a small amount of water to make it less thick, more like a cream. I would say 2-3 tablespoons…enough to make it easy to push through the sprayer. So I tested it out on some cardboard to make sure it came out smoothly. It develops a “skin” over the sprayer so be sure to clean that off often.
