Frugal and Fun

So this kitchen my kitchen circa 2006.  It's from my old house in California.  This is one of the funnest kitchens I've ever had.  When I got the house it had oak cabinets, brown linoleum floors, almond appliances,  and cream formica counter tops.  I had $7000 to spend and that included appliances.  With some clearance shopping and elbow grease I was able to transform it.  I painted out the cabinets and added a molding (by hand).  I changed out the hardware, added tile to the countertops (granite was not yet super popular ).  Added a floor tile (hired out a handyman) and even had enough left over to have a custom wine cabinet built.  I really wish I had shot a before picture.  Too late now.
