30 DIY Ideas For Your Kitchen

We talk a lot about food – from cooking and eating to politics and justice – but what about sprucing up your kitchen? These are some fun DIY ideas to deck out your kitchen without breaking your budget.

My husband and I are in the middle of a kitchen remodel, and I can report from the thick of it that redoing your kitchen is expensive, especially if you want things to be eco-friendly. We’re hiring folks to install the recycled counter tops and sink that we chose, but I can’t wait to add some more DIY goodness to our kitchen decor!

What I love about the DIY ideas below is that they’re not just money savers. Since the list comes to us from our sister site Crafting a Green World, you know that they’re as kind to the planet as they are to your budget. Boom! Pow!
