9. Paint or Reglaze Kitchen Sink
If you can’t afford to redo your kitchen countertops, chances are you are stuck with your kitchen sink. Removing a sink requires some countertop demo, unless you have a top mounted sink, and is, you guessed it, expensive! Although a time intensive and detailed task, reglazing your sink may be a good option if you have a worn or chipped one. Make sure you have the time and dedication for this task, as it requires several days of not using your sink! Maybe a test for someone to complete on your behalf while you take that vacation? You can purchase your own kit online or in any home improvement store.
