Kitchen

The Back Story

Here’s a kitchen project you will enjoy outside and inside your house. Almost every kitchen has a window, so why not hang a window box to grow fresh kitchen herbs? You can buy a ready-made box, and you’ll have fresh herbs like rosemary, basil, and sage right at your fingertips. Before you hang your box, make sure you measure and mark both sides so your box will be level. Then, plant your herbs and let nature do the rest. Whenever you paint inside your house, you can roast sage leaves to neutralize the smell of fresh paint.

1970's Kitchen Nightmare

Jesse & Megan are a young and recently engaged couple. They are first time homeowners with a 1975 kitchen nightmare. While saving every penny for their mortgage and upcoming wedding, they do not have the means to bring their kitchen up to date.  Now it's up to Antonio and his team to give them a stylish and modernized kitchen.

Instructions

Are you having trouble reading recipes in the kitchen? If you’d like to lighten things up, try adding under cabinet lighting. You can find easy to install individual lights, just like these or track lighting with separate heads. There’s no wiring required. The best part is they’re really simple to install. Make sure you get plenty of batteries. Most of these fixtures take AAs. Remember not to store spare batteries in your refrigerator or freezer. The moisture and cold could actually shorten their shelf life at home.

Supplies
  • Individual Lights
  • Track Lighting (Separate Heads)
  • Batteries
Instructions

Do you want a fresh idea for your kitchen chairs that won’t cost you a fortune? Here it is. Collect a group of different style wooden chairs that are about the same size. You can find them at garage sales or thrift shops. First you want to clean the chair, then you want to sand your rough spots. Always use two coats of spray paint to cover your chair. Now, you can tie them all together with matching seat cushions. I like the way this looks, what do you think? Using mismatched, freshly painted chairs is an easy way to express your own personal style in the kitchen. 

Supplies
  • Chairs
  • Soapy Water and Rag
  • Sandpaper
  • Spray Paint
  • Cushions
The Back Story

Love the look of crystal clear glass tables, inside and outside your home? Here's the best way to clean and protect them. First, remove anything heavy that could crack or break a glass tabletop. Always place objects on your table gently. Never toss anything onto a glass table, because it could easily chip. Use coasters under drinks or food, especially anything very hot or cold. Clean your glass often, to get rid of fingerprints, dust, and smudges. Use window spray, or water and vinegar for a streak free surface.

The Back Story

Every busy household needs a family message center. Here’s a simple way to make a custom chalkboard for your house. To start, go to your neighborhood home improvement store and get a wood board. Make sure you sand it to a smooth finish. Then, wipe it clean and apply a coat of primer. When it’s completely dry, you’re ready for the fun part. Take a can of chalkboard spray paint, and get creative. Once the board is covered wait twenty-four hours. Then, rub the side of the piece of the chalk over every inch of it. Wipe off the chalk with a damp cloth and your new family message center is ready to hang.

Instructions

What kind of kitchen sink do you have? Cast-Iron is the most common. Rinse your sink often especially for foods that can stain, like tomato sauce. Avoid abrasive cleansers, and your sink enamel will last for decades. Stainless Steel sinks clean easily with a paste of baking soda and water. Dry afterwards to prevent water spots. Acrylic sinks need special care. Try two drops of dish liquid on a sponge and never put a hot pot in an acrylic sink, otherwise it’ll melt. 

Supplies
  • Baking Soda
  • Dish Soap, Sponges
  • Sink Polish and Cleansers
Instructions

Looking for unique backsplash ideas that are easy on the budget? A backsplash is the area behind your sink. Try a beaded board panel for a county kitchen feel. Give it two coats of high gloss paint for quick clean up. A sheet of glass can be painted on the back for a modern backsplash look. Seal well around the edges, so water can’t seep in; or, try stainless steel stick on tiles for an industrial feel that will match your appliances. Remember, your backsplash sets the tone for the entire kitchen, so be creative. 

Supplies
  • Paint (Brushes, Pan, and Rollers)
  • Spray Paint
  • Stick On Backsplash Tiles
  • Loctite Gel
  • Glass
  • Beaded Board Panel
