This series has been a blast to put together! I hope you guys are enjoying it too. If you've missed the intro, part one, part two or part three, make sure you catch up!
Now it's time to show how our dark, closed-off kitchen became a bright light in our home. I may have mentioned before that I'm so ready to overhaul our 1954 cabinets...but until we a) hit the lottery, or b) save up the funds, I, at least, have a pretty kitchen to look at. ;)
Our kitchen hasn't changed a whole lot since I revealed the renovation, right after we moved in,so here's a little refresher...
We couldn't afford a new kitchen, so I made it look as new as possible. We painted the cabinets, added new hardware, ripped out the linoleum and continued hardwoods throughout. We removed the restaurant booth (yes, I said restaurant booth) and used the cabinet from the back side of it to create an island. We also added lighting, new appliances, a new backsplash and countertops. It made a world of difference, and I couldn't believe how great our 1954 kitchen looked.
What do you think...should we have just kept the old look?! ;)
