We're in the process of transforming our kitchen on a budget to fit our style.

sinks 04.14.16
We painted cabinets, swapped out hardware, painted walls, installed new granite countertops, new zero radius sink and faucets, marble subway tile backsplash, removed vinyl and luan and opted for distressed bamboo when the old original wood floor didn't match up with the plywood addition, removed a pantry and installed a pot rack and French doors. We still need a stove backsplash, baseboards, DIY kitchen island and a larger refrigerator. This is our forever home and we love the change.

    Roeshel, you can purchase base cabinets pretty cheap and put your own spint on them to match your style. That way you wouldn't actually have to build somthing from scratch! You know I love your projects so anytime I see them I'm impressed!

    I love this entire space! You did an amazing job! It must be even more satisfying knowing you did it yourself. Your finishes are timeless. I'm a "white kitchen" lover so perhaps I'm biased!

    Thanks, BeckySue. Our main obstacle is our tight budget, so DIY usually fits our needs. We also already have marble for the top thanks to the previous owner of our home who was a candy-maker. :) However - I do like keeping my options open so vendor
