Sound scary? Well, in the not too distant past, my husband and I did just that.
We had changed so much in the condo since we moved in, yet the kitchen remained the same. Ugly, heavy cabinets EVERYWHERE, oak trim like you wouldn't believe, terra cotta tile, faux granite laminate - you name it, this kitchen had it. What we didn't have, however, was a lot of money for a new kitchen. By turn of the century Chicago condo standards, we have a pretty big kitchen. Big kitchen = big $ for renovation.
So, we decided to take matters into our own hands. For $1,500.
Here are some before pictures, to get you acquainted with the space (some are taken from when we bought the place, so the old floors are shown - they are now stained a dark ebony).
After we started demo & remembered that we needed to take "before" pictures :)
