Quick Ways to Revive Your Kitchen

Kitchens are the heart of the home. They are usually the most used room in a home so function and design are key. You should also love the space. You should feel inspired to cook and spend time in your kitchen. If you don't, then there are some easy ways to spruce up your kitchen.


  • Paint. I love paint because it is cheap and pretty much anyone can do it. You can paint the walls to instantly change the look of the kitchen. Another great way to revive a tired kitchen is to paint the cabinets.
  • Speaking of cabinets. How about changing the drawer and cabinet door pulls and knobs? This is a great way to make a big change without much effort or money.
  • Lighting is another easy way to change the look of the kitchen. Brighten the space by adding some track or recessed lights. Then, make sure to add some pretty task lighting as well.
  • Curtains and window treatments are also a fast way to spruce up a kitchen.
Whatever you do, it should reflect you and your family.

Recipe & Measuring Equivalents Cards

I found a gem of a blog called, Lolly Chops that I just had to share with my blogging buddies. You have to visit Lolly's blog and see all of her free printables she designs herself. She has many different designs, but I thought my readers could benefit from her recipe cards and measurement equivalents cards. The measurement card would be great to laminate and add a magnet to the back so that you could put on the fridge.
