They've recently been doing a special on how to make your kitchen better. Better storage, better colors, better cooking, everything. One special thing was all about renters: how to fix things up without having to pay out the ass in maintenance fees once you leave. Well, I stumbled upon a pretty cool idea of theirs a week or so ago. Needless to say, I couldn't help myself:
This peg board was probably one of the easiest and coolest home improvement projects I've ever done. The total cost was 24 dollars, and that INCLUDED a quart of paint to match what we currently have in our living room. If you do it without the paint, it's about 12 or 13 dollars. Since I got a Home Depot gift card for Christmas, total cost to me was a big fat ZERO. It opened up a whole cabinet of space, which in turn gave me a whole new countertop free to work on. I need to get a few extra hooks so I can hang up some more utensils and my french press. Needless to say, it was an easy project that I absolutely recommend if you have a free wall and need some kitchen space.
