This is how Carolyn’s kitchen used to look. It was a dark, “1986 yucky room” when they bought the house. When she submitted these photos for my Kitchen Contest, she explained that they had a very tight budget, so they did everything but install the countertops themselves. “We are novice do-it-yourselfers, which meant we had a lot to learn along the way.”
“We have 2 small kids (ages 2 and 5 when we did the renovation), so we mainly worked nights after they were in bed. But now I love my kitchen and all of the ways we were able to make it fit our style.”
Every time I see my beautiful ‘new’ kitchen, I think of all the hours my husband and I spent together, making it just right!”
