My Kitchen Refurb


I was so fed up of my kitchen, nothing worked..even my stove! i was cooking for my family of 9 with 1 dodgy oven and only 1 gas ring!! We'd had several years of a leaking bath (room above) so the ceiling was in a terrible state and hardly any of the cupboards had doors due to the little people using them as swings :-/ sooooo it was well over due for a re-fit! I always try to do things on a budget and ebay is 2nd home :-)...we got the cupboards from there, they are 'magnet' and cost me £260! The range cooker also from ebay and cost me £250..it had been dropped on one corner but still works perfectly... you can hardly tell! The clock was £16..ebay..and the sink + unit was made by two retired carpenters £120. Curtains were £32 (i bought extra long ones to make the under sink curtain and more for the laundry room..you can just see this in the background. The colour was dictated by my coffee maker, the only appliance worth keeping :-) I love designing rooms, ive done my entire house now..some rooms several times over as the kids needs change. What do you think?

We had highly varnished pine boards before very 80's so we had the ceiling lowered, plastered and spots put in!
