The Coolest Way to Paint Your Tiny Kitchen on a Budget — Kitchen Projects

My friends have beautiful homes with expansive kitchens and adorable children and handsome, hard-working husbands, and I'm over here in my tiny house that I rent, single, and I can't even keep a plant alive.

How I Reset Myself (and My Kitchen) in January — January Reset

I don't do New Year's resolutions, although I understand the impulse. The year is young and fresh, the feasting season is past, and in the quiet of early January there is more space to take a deep breath and have a look around — both internally and externally — and ask what is going well and what could use a little work?
