Budget kitchen makeovers

By Mary Beth Breckenridge Published: September 25, 2012

I'm rarely wowed by photos of kitchen makeovers done by professionals. The results can be gorgeous, sure. But if you throw enough money at a project, you ought to expect great results.

I much prefer to see makeovers done by average folks with more creativity than cash.

That's why I enjoyed seeing these two makeovers among several highlighted in HGTV's latest email newsletter. The makeovers are from's Rate My Space online community. Click through the photo gallery to see the before and after pictures.

Note the curtains in the "after" photo of the first kitchen. They were repurposed from a Salvation Army find.
