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

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.

    Awesome! I had a home renovation business for 8 years so I know how much work it takes, but that first time you have a meal in your new kitchen....such a great feeling. You should be proud!

    Thanks for posting. We are in the middle of a major renovation of our kitchen, dining and living area. I have same design oak cabinets as you. We are also going to paint ours. Love how yours turned out. Makes me super anxious to keep working on our project.

      Wanda, thanks! I just looked and I can't find the name of the brand anywhere on the sink. It's a undermount zero radius sink (30x17x 10 in deep). I do love farmhouse sinks too but my husband

    This is how I envision my kitchen to look once I have painted the cabinets. I already have the black granite counter top. I just LOVE the tile back splash!

    How are your floors holding up in the kitchen. I've heard so many stories of water causing buckling and spots...Afraid to do wood in the kitchen or dining. Also does it scratch easy with dining chairs being moved in and out at the table?
