DIY Inspiration & Tutorials

My friend, Kari of Newlyweds on a Budget just did a great makeover of her kitchen for under $50.  Yup.  Isn’t that amazing?  Check out this after picture of her kitchen makeover on a budget.

Kari’s project has me inspired to do some home improvement projects.  So, where do we all look for inspiration?  Pinterest, of course.  Here are some great tutorials I found that you might like.
