Before and After: Cramped 50's Kitchen Gets Major Makeover on a Minor Budget

Dark and dated. That about sums up this 1950's California kitchen. For the budget redo, the cabinets stayed, with a little modification. That being the removal of those separating the working area from the breakfast nook and applying paint (soft green-gray on the bottom and crisp white on the uppers). Ceasarstone "Blizzard" countertops  replaced the old tile countertops.

Glass tile backsplash, some wallpaper and (it appears) a new tile floor round out the big stuff. Now, that sounds like a lot of changes to be considered a 'budget' makeover, but as the space's footprint wasn't change and the cabinets removed/replaced, it probably was, comparatively speaking. Be that as it may, there's a good amount of inspiration here for the DIYer.
