Simple Kitchen Makeover: {Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart}

As a Better Homes & Gardens Stylemaker, I am honored to work with their amazing brand sharing their stylish and affordable line of home products available at Walmart! As always, any product reviews or opinions are honest feedback from my personal experience.  This post contains affiliate links to Walmart, which means the brand rewards me with a small commission for any sale resulting from a link click through from my blog.  I am excited to share my February project with you today!

Who doesn't love a good before and after?  With just a few, easy changes, I gave this kitchen a fun update!  The kitchen is the heart of the home.  Have you ever noticed how people congregate in the kitchen at gatherings even though there is a whole house to utilize?  I love how this kitchen is so open to the rest of the house with the living room on the other side of the island and the breakfast area nearby.  There was nothing wrong with it to begin with, but we wanted to transform it so it flowed better with the rest of the house. I went to work using  products from the Better Homes & Gardens line at Walmart and the end result turned out amazing!

Here is the before...nothing wrong with it per se, we just wanted to update things and make it feel more inviting!

The most impactful change I made was swapping the outdated lighting.  I selected these awesome globe pendants from the Better Homes and Gardens line.  The clear glass globes were a great fit and give a space a more modern and airy vibe.  At under $25/each (including the bulbs), these were too good to pass up!

To bring in some interest and character, I accessorized the space using wood tones and textures.  Plants are a great way to add a organic, natural feel and look great in any space. Wood tones, textured planters and a few other touches finished off the look without overdoing it.

This beautiful, wood bowl would be great to store fruit in, but if you are like me and want something unique...just add a glass bottle and seasonal stems for a fun display!

Keeping with the wood theme, I used a Acacia wood dough bowl to corral cooking necessities.  Such a simple way to keep things visually appealing on countertops.

To balance out the look, this wood slice tray was perfect to use for a little coffee station.

To update the breakfast nook, I selected new chairs, a new rug and a new light from the Better Homes & Gardens line at Walmart to create an updated, modern look.  Check out the before....

And the after....

Such an upgrade!  I love the sleek modern look of this area now! The new, modern farmhouse style chandelier was made for this space!  I love the unique shape and the Edison bulbs add in a nice, industrial feel!  These bulbs are included with the chandelier...a major bonus!

When I saw these chairs, I knew they would be a great option to pair with the existing table.  They are such great quality and super simple to put together.  If gray isn't your color, they also come in more colors! 

On the table, I came up with a fun tablescape to add some personality to this area.  As mentioned earlier, I love using live plants as decor and when I found the terrazzo planter, I knew it would look great here! The design adds so much texture.

Speaking of texture, how great is this trellis shag rug?  Since this space is so open to the kitchen and living area, I wanted to use the rug to define the dining area.  The subtle pattern and colors create a nice contrast with the wood floors.  You won't believe how inexpensive this rug is, especially since it is such good quality!  Linked below...

This makeover was so much fun to complete.  I couldn't be more pleased with the end result!
