My house had a decent sized kitchen, granted it was unusable because it had no appliances!
We ended up removing everything from the kitchen - cabinets, counter tops, flooring - All 7 layers of hideous flooring! I did save the cabinet knobs since they were brand new.
I finally got around to cleaning my kitchen and taking the 'after' shots of the renovation.
Originally, there was no pantry, so we added a pantry where the A/C Unit use to be.
I have to give a shout out to Rachael Ray for this great pantry organization tip - Use an over the door shoe rack to organize all the little things! It's a great help and saves a lot of space!
Unfortunately, there isn't really a dining room in my house. So I have a small eating area in my kitchen. Thankfully, I found this great table at Bed Bath and Beyond that fit perfectly!
I think my favorite part of my new kitchen is the 'chandelier' light fixture above my table. I got it on clearance at Lowe's for $70!
I am definitively enjoying my new kitchen!
