Kitchen Remodel

50,794 Views
It took nearly two years to complete and cost about $1500 to do, but we finally finished our kitchen remodel. Just in time to sell our home. Sigh. It all started because I wanted to remove the wallpaper and the carpet.
We are sad to leave this beautiful kitchen behind but hope someone else loves it as much as we do. You can see all the details on my blog. ‪

The main view of the kitchen, after the remodel. We exposed the brick wall, built open shelves, rebuilt the stove peninsula and added a bar area, amongst many other projects. See the complete transformation -- included the increased storage -- at froufrugal.com.

    I love the window wall and the sink area with the exposed brick. Just two things that I didn't care for were the underneath backside of the stove and the industrial shelve unit on the left side. I just don't think these elements are as classy as the rest of the kitchen. Good job on taking a plain kitchen and making it unique - also love the lighting.
