Here are some 'before' pics of my kitchen before we moved in to our current 'rented' home. The owners had to switch out the refrigerator as the original one did not get cold. The replacement is larger, but it's harvest gold.....one of my future projects is to paint it white to match the range.
You can see that there wasn't much counter or cabinet space. So one of the first things I did was to go to my local ReStore and find a base cabinet ($20) to fit between the stove and refrigerator. It was pretty shabby and dirty, I couldn't decide what color I wanted to paint it, so I used contact paper ($5) instead. A 'thrifty' $25 total! Saaweet!!!
Part 2 coming soon....I will be featuring the Kitchen Island I built....well, sorta built...I did 'make' it!!!
