Andrea's kitchen looks nothing like it did when she and her family first moved into their home. A makeover was in order, but the budget was small. In this case $1,000 small. The fact that she and her husband were able to accomplish the re-do for that price tag certainly drew my attention. They did have some things going for them when they started, however. Like a
Naomi's client had a kitchen spanning two poorly functioning rooms, divided by a load-bearing wall. They invested in a support beam that opened up the space in one impressive way.
Last Friday, I posted this kitchen makeover and a commenter mentioned she'd love to see some non-white cabinet makeovers. Ask and you shall receive! Check out Cassie's new and improved kitchen.
This builder-basic kitchen didn't just get a facelift. It got an entire face transplant! Not only does it look like an entirely new space, even though the layout didn't change one iota, it looks completely professional-grade. See how this homeowner DIY turned out.
Oooooh my goodness, the time has come: my big kitchen makeover reveal is finally here! Take a good, long look at the "before"... then click on through for all the "after" photos your heart can handle! Warning: angelic choirs may be present; hearing protection suggested.
Oh, hey! Remember this? Before it can turn into a sparkly, made-over wonder, we need to have a game plan, y'all! A game plan and some IDEAS... inspiration, if you will. And if there's anything I'm good at, it's planning things (it's a compulsion, really). So! Let's see where this kitchen is headed, shall we?
When we bought our house in 2007 (pre-bubble burst... YAY), one of the first things on my to-do list was to give our very blah, very builder-grade kitchen a makeover. Well, this last fall, after tackling every other room in the house instead, we decided it was finally time to give this sage green behemoth its due. But first: the before photos!
Kimberly's kitchen is one of those rooms that don't look like they need a makeover until you see the 'after'. Then it provokes a change of heart. It did me, anyway. How about you? Do you groove to the
Oh, hey! It's a comically small kitchen island floating awkwardly in the middle of the room! If this predicament sounds (or looks) familiar, we've got just the makeover for you.
When Mike and Trina Burke bought this 1920s farmhouse in the country it was falling apart and in desperate need of some TLC. Fast forward a few years (and many, many hours of hard work) and they're sitting pretty in a bucolic, picture-perfect farmhouse complete with the classiest country kitchen I've ever seen!
I'm not going to lie, this 'before' photo is a little scary... and probably a little sticky. And smelly, too. And, well, there's a whole lot o' yellow going on up in there. The 'after', though? Oh, the after rains down buckets of awesome--and wipes that sticky, smelly, yellow mess right off the map!
We're in the throes of our own personal kitchen makeover (more on that later), so my makeover-o-meter is operating on full power: everywhere I turn, spectacular makeovers of all kinds are waving their hands and shouting my name! The inspiration is almost overwhelming, which is why I stopped dead in my tracks when I spied this $50 kitchen makeover. Yes, folks, FIFTY DOLLARS.
Isabella's kitchen was cramped and totally forgettable. With the help of designer Cameron MacNeil, it's now open and inviting with a contemporary bistro feel. Some of the makeover highlights include marble countertops, a drawer dishwasher, a chalkboard
Way back in '09, Jennifer posted the most remarkable reveal of her Old Painted Cottage. Although the entire home was made over, we're going to look at the kitchen today. Talk about being a shadow of its former self.
