When decorating, also keep in mind to add some flower arrangements as they have the ability of really cheering up a place.

strapped cash

Use reclaimed wood

Reclaimed wood can be anything from the salvaged floorboards of a school gym to driftwood you find walking on the beach. You can use reclaimed wood for everything from countertops to furniture to smaller items like cutting boards and decorations.

Paint it White

Paint the walls and cabinetry white and then choose brightly colored drawer pulls, cabinet handles and other smaller decorative touches to help them pop.

You can easily leather straps fairly cheaply at most craft supply stores. Switch out your current cabinet handles and drawer pulls for leather pulls that you make yourself.

Paint your cabinets

Giving your cabinets a fresh coat of paint or a fresh wood stain can liven up the space and make it feel new.

Clean it up

You would be surprised by how much a good and deep cleaning of a kitchen can freshen up the space. Really go to town.

Take everything down and put everything away. Put the small appliances away in cabinets and drawers. Take everything off the walls.

Use your windows
