Transformation Tuesday: Kitchen Before

I know I know, you were expecting to see the much anticipated Breakfast Room reveal but the winter weather delayed a few final packages so you must wait until next week!

In the meantime, I’m going to show you my March home transformation project, the KITCHEN.

The good: Lots of cabinets! I did a full kitchen gut about 6 years ago and turned my galley kitchen into a u-shape that is much more functional. The cabinets are manufactured by Kraftmaid that I bought through Home Depot.

The bad: Too much stuff on the counters and no organization under the sink. I insisted on a farmhouse sink (which I adore) but the deep sink and garbage disposal don’t leave much room.  I also definitely want something other than the standard builder overhead boob light I have now.

The ugly: My appliances. I know stainless is all the rage but keeping it clean is impossible. While my budget doesn’t support ripping them out and replacing, I hope to find a workable solution for keeping them clean that doesn’t require me giving away the dog, teenager, or husband!

The plan: Replace the light fixture, clean the appliances, create some sort of  under sink organization and reduce the clutter on the counters. Hopefully by month’s end everything will be exactly the way I like it.

The budget: $200.00

The timetable: March 1-31
