You don’t need weeks or months of remodeling to refresh your kitchen’s palette, especially if you’re starting with a neutral look. Here are four of my favorite elements to add color quickly to any white, cream or gray kitchen.
The first project on our list features a wonderful rustic backsplash made from the reclaimed wood of old shipping pallets. You can see this backsplash is a great DIY project opportunity for your kitchen because it uses inexpensive materials to create great looking results. If you decide to have this kitchen backsplash, locate some old pallets with boards in good condition, scrub the boards clean, and cut them into smaller sized pieces.
