This old kitchen is dark and dingy, with too much wood and not very much style. But wait until you check out the revamped space - it's fresh, bright and contemporary. And the best part? The owners did everything themselves. Check out the amazing transformation after the jump.
The biggest change that the owners made to the space was adding more storage above the existing cabinets. This shifted the scale of the room, making it feel taller and more spacious. Painting everything a crisp white color lends a feeling of freshness to the new kitchen, and the reflective black countertops and stools give the room some depth. Head on over to the Pencil Shavings Studio blog to check out the "during" photos, as well as lots more images of the finished space.
