I’m super excited to bring you 11 beautiful DIY kitchen hacks on a budget today!  This is a new series I will be taking part in where us bloggers will be sharing everything DIY once a month, this months topic is kitchens! A big thanks so Julie from Redhead Can Decorate for inviting me along!  So if you are new here, welcome!  Our kitchen was the very first thing I posted on my blog 6 years ago, wow does time fly!  It was a project my husband and I were extremely proud of and has been featured in Better Homes and Gardens. Now, if you walked into my kitchen today, you sadly won’t see the same kitchen that I’m sharing with you today, I’ll explain later in the post.

DIY Mason Jar Lamp

Hi there, my name is Kristi and I blog at Chatfield Court, where I share fun and easy DIY projects as well as the home improvement projects that we’ve done while fixing up our small 1950’s brick ranch. I’m honored to be here to guest post at My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia. I’ve been reading Kristin’s blog for many years, way before I started my blog, so it’s a real thrill to guest post for her while she’s spending the holidays with her family.
