Home Remodel

So we have been in our house for almost 5 years now.  When we first moved in we painted everywhere, but now I am getting sick of everything and want to make some changes.  We don't really have any money for a serious home remodel, so I want to try to make some changes on a small budget.  I really want to re-do our bathroom and kitchen the most.  Our kitchen cabinets are straight out of 1987 and I kind of hate them.  I was thinking of just sanding them down and re-staining them, or painting them, but I haven't really figured that out yet.   I decided that I would start with our bathroom and work my way to the kitchen.  I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do with the bathroom, so I turned to shower curtains for some inspiration... after hours and hours of looking at shower curtains online I discovered that Amy Butler has a home line which includes shower curtains!  Amy Butler is one of my absolute favorite fabric designers, so I think I need to buy an Amy Butler shower curtain.  Her line only contains 4 shower curtains, but here are two that I love:

and some awesome towels:

They sell these items at Bed, Bath and Beyond, so I need to plan a trip there to check them out in person and then make a choice on which one I want to use.  After I choose that, I am going to re-paint the bathroom to match.  I would love to just tear out our whole bathroom and start from scratch - but I know that won't happen!  Some other ideas I have for our bathroom - get rid of our towel bar and add one of these to the wall that the towel bar is currently on:

or this:

and then I also want to get a new cabinet for the wall over the toilet - we currently have 3 glass shelves - our bathroom(actually our whole house) is always dusty, and it drives me nuts!  But it's always a pain to dust all of those glass shelves, so I want to get something that is enclosed, like this:

I would also like to be able to add some hooks or something to the inside of the doors to hang my necklaces on, if thats possible. 

If I ever get started on these home projects I will be sure to post updates!  Hopefully I will make a final decision on a shower curtain soon, and then I will definitely be motivated to get this done!
