Everyone has a dream something in mind. Maybe it’s a dream house, or a dream car, or a dream vacation. Something that you like thinking about but doubt you’ll ever get a chance to make into reality.
After all, when you factor in time, budget, and motivation, it sometimes seems like nothing ever gets done.
But don’t get discouraged. And if you need some inspiration, look no further than Tanya over at Dans le Lakehouse.
She had been dreaming of making over her kitchen for years, but didn’t want to spend too much money. But thanks to some thriftiness and cleverness, she got the kitchen of her dreams for a very reasonable price.
Tanya’s kitchen when she started was fine, but plain. It had lots of oak cabinets, which, while nice, were too small and made the kitchen look heavy and cluttered.
Taking inspiration from the 1950s and ’60s, as well as from her collection of turquoise butterprint Pyrex cookware, she transformed the space into an airy kitchen with equal parts vintage charm and modern sleekness.
Because really, is there anything cuter than a retro-styled kitchen? The answer is no.
Tanya admits that the kitchen may change in the future, and that like so many artists, designers, and DIY-ers, she never really feels “finished” with a space. But for now, this turquoise kitchen is just so charming.
Check it out below, and let us know about your dream renovation, makeover, or project in the comments.
