Julie at Being Home refinished her kitchen cabinets HERSELF. In our house, I have the ideas, and the man is thrilled to use his tools, doing the manual labor.
The appliances now match, the faux tile backsplash removed, and oak stained dark. I think the best upgrade was removing the ivy wallpaper and brass lights. I also see that the kitchen faucet was improved as well. The detailing on the island is my favorite detail. I am amazed at the transformation.
