Tiny Kitchen Renovation with Faux Painted Brick Backsplash
One of the very best parts of this holiday season is getting to see family and friends that you haven’t seen for a year — and part of the fun is hosting holiday guests! We decided to invite some guests of our own here to Remodelaholic for our very own special holiday guest series! And our first guest comes all the way from Germany, so give Lydia and her adorable small kitchen renovation a warm holiday welcome:
Tiny Kitchen Makeover with Painted Faux Brick Backsplash
by Lydia of Pudel-design
at first I want to thank Lorene and Cassity from Remodelaholic for featuring my post!
As I opened the mail Lorene send me, I was so excited and happy to read her request!
This is amazing;)
I am Lydia Pudel from Pudel-design,
I am a graphic designer and I write about my projects and art.
You maybe have seen some of my projects,
like “The carpet reveal”, my
“DIY Bubble Chandelier”
or “A DIY housewarming Gift” on Pinterest or some other blogs.
So today I want to share with you my kitchen renovation journey!
It took me about one whole year to finish this project, not that I was lazy or something, but like you all know, sometimes life gets in the way of a good DIY and you have to pause;)
But we learned a lot during this renovation. My hubby now can open any kitchen cabinet without using a handle or knob, because we lived without them for quite a time;)
Do you want to see the finished kitchen?
Here it is.

This was where we started!
But at first we raised the cabinets, put shelves underneath and painted the walls.
Now are you ready for the full after shots?

Hi, I’m planning to upgrade our kitchen and I would like to ask what wood did you use in your counter top?
