Just a Girl and Her Blog
Just a Girl and Her blog is run by Abby Lawson, and whilst it is very sickly sweet American Dream, there are some amazing DIY transformations that we fell in love with. Our main focus is on the incredible kitchen transformation, turning a dark and dowdy kitchen into a fresh, clean white kitchen. We saw a partial transformation where this family changed a few things, and then the finished project after their kitchen was entirely gutted. Check it out here.
Another kitchen renovation we’re crazy about is this one featured on Nina Hendrick’s blog. Once again, transforming a brown lifeless kitchen into a beautiful white open space, this renovation shows how easy it is to change the way your kitchen looks with a like of paint and some perseverance. Nina’s blog also shares simple seasonal decorating ideas, to mouth watering recipes and healthy lifestyle tips, you’ll be spoilt for choice! Check out more here.
