Before and After: 1980's Kitchen Makeover

By: Diy maven Jun 06, 2014

Carolyn described her 1980's kitchen "yucky." It's certainly far from that now. Confined to a tight budget, she and her husband did all the work themselves except for the installation of the countertops. The DIY mostly happened in the evening  when their young children were in bed. It was then they tackled the cabinets, tile backsplash, flooring, and more. The result of their dedication paid off big time. Take a look at the kitchen now:

I am in love with this floor, and the overall look.  But, I am  SO SICK of subway tile.  Can it just die already?

Being a young handyman I enjoy working in a retro environment. I'd love to work on a project like this. And yes, the breakfast counter is a really special one.

That breakfast counter makes all the difference in the world! Looks fantastic!
