Hello my lovelies! I think you’ve probably heard me (read me…? whhhhat…) mention that Jeremy and I were updating a few rooms in the house. That’s why I’m finally sharing this kitchen makeover post! Now, we do rent currently so there is no way we could do what I reallly wanted-ย  like, replace the counter tops, new floors, bleh bleh. So, this is just mostly decorative items. But I still think it came out super cute and the best part is we only spent about $60 on it all! Hellllllo Hobby Lobby clearance! Hehe… (P.S. I hope you like pictures… ahem.)

I love this padded furry rug! Makes washing dishes a touch more enjoyable…. a touch.

That’s it! I really love my new kitchen decor! It feels much more “us” in a grown up way. I know that sounds weird but we were still clinging on to items from when we first started living on our own. All the items came from either Hobby Lobby, Tuesday Morning or things I already had around the house!

I hope you liked this kitchen makeover! Do you have any tips on how to decorate/makeover a room while renting? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!

    Hey Dana, love your make-over. We rent as well and it’s always nice to be able to change things around a bit. I’m sitting here trying to get in Fall/Halloween/Thanksgiving mode but it’s hard to do while it’s still 90* outside. Here in the plains of Texas we don’t get fall until October or November. Anyway, thanks for the post and I’d be happy to share. I just can’t get out of the blogging rut to post anything new.

      I totally know where you’re coming from with the weather, we live in Florida so we are pretty much in the same boat!! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Thanks for stopping by Let’s Get Real today Dana. I was really excited to see what you did with your kitchen. Rent or not………sometimes the budget is low and the desire to switch things up is high. I especially love what you did with your cake plate centerpiece. I’ll have to get mine out and let it get some use. Very cute!

      Thanks so much! Our budget is always small, so you’re right I couldn’t do all the things I would want anyway, LOL!

    I love seeing renters showing off decorating tips! I rented for several years before we bought our current home & I wished we would have done something like this to our rental kitchen.
    I’m stopping by from Serenity Now.(#39 Open Concept and 40 Pumpkin Crock Pot Oatmeal) Have a great weekend!

    It looks moo-velous! We used to collect cows too!

    What a great redesign job!
    You have created a cozy and functional space!
    I have pinned this to share with others.
    By the way, I found you on Diana Rambles Pin Linky Party!
    I’ll be back to see what you are up to again soon.

    Cute! makeover, we are looking for a home and i am dying to renovate a space, so this is a great way to cure the itch of remodeling for now. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love how a few accessories can change a space. I especially like the herb and spice subway art. We lease our place, so I know what you mean about all the things you want to change but can’t. I’m visiting from the DIY Sunday Showcase link party.

    Renting certainly makes decorating a challenge, but you’ve done a fantastic job! Accessories are where it’s at! Very cute.

    Love what you did! We’re currently renting too and have the same issue. Can’t do what we want! Our Hobby Lobby opened about a week ago, so theres really no clearance yet! Will be visiting regularly now!

    I love what you have done in your kitchen. I am renting, too and I know how that feels. You did a fabulous job. Thanks for linking up to Tickled Pink Times Two!

    Love your kitchen changes. I bought a white cow creamer yesterday ๐Ÿ™‚

    It looks great. I have been a home owner but soon we are moving and I will have to rent an apartment. I am used to changing things when I want. This inspired me that I can do something even when I rent. I am stopping by today from Made U Look blog Hop. I look forward to your visit at homemaker-mom.com
