When I bought my house, the kitchen looked like this:
Yuck. I hated nearly everything about the kitchen. The oppressively low ceiling with glaring fluorescent light. The ugly bank of ceiling-mounted cabinets. The odd layout. The grungy appliances. The water-damaged floor.
No problem. It was nothing a complete gut-and-rebuild wouldn't fix. ;) I began to plan and budget for totally remodeling the space.
Then my employment status became uncertain, and kitchen remodeling fell to the bottom of the spending priority list. With no way of knowing when I'd again be comfortable putting money into a kitchen remodel, I decided to move forward with a low-budget makeover. By recycling what I had and using some unconventional solutions, I ended up with what I think is a pretty good result.
Over the next several posts, I'll be showing what went into making over my kitchen, so check back to see the details of my projects. And stay tuned for the big reveal at the end. :)
