My white kitchen tour

Growing Vegies 03.05.16
Ten years ago we had the ugliest house on the block when we moved in. And not much of a decorating budget. So we kept the kitchen lay-out intact, splurged on a few appliances. And used paint and vintage pieces to add personality.

    Well, it sure is pretty, but looks more than a minor re-do with new tiles/countertops, etc. I'd like to see a before pic to get an idea of how bad the white was. Looks quite expensive re-do. Costs?

    This is beautiful. But "ugliest house on the block"? I hardly think so.

    The end result of your makeover is lovely. However we lost a lot of the impact of "wow look what she did" without a BEFORE picture.

    I could fit my kitchen inside one of your cabinets- well almost... it is 8 ft wide, and 12 ft long with dining room-kitchen door in the north east corner, chiminey north west corner, and outside door and basement door to the south west.. when we bought

      Nancy Bomak I was going to say the same thing. My entire work area is 3 square feet in an L shape. It's a beautiful kitchen for sure.

    I painted my dark cabinets at least 10 years ago & never been sorry . Sanded them down & used Diamond hard paint from Pittsburg paints Sill as white as ever !

    So the enormously high ceiling, the tile floor, the back splash, the inset lighting, the underset sink and new facets and all those modern light controlling rheostats were there ? Paint and some vintage pieces - yea, right !
