Overall we're very happy with the way everything turned out, but it was a much bigger project than we had anticipated. We're almost finished... just some minor details and touch-ups left to do. We learned so along the way with the biggest lesson being: do NOT try to live in the same space you are trying to renovate...

The old kitchen uses dark wood cabinets and plaid wallpaper. This gives it a rather dark effect. We believe the kitchen should emulate a happy feel.
THE NEW KITCHEN
The backsplash is surprisingly easy to clean... 2 good cleaning powders you can get in the grocery store (on the aisle where you'd find Comet or SoftScrub) are "Barkeeper's Friend" and "Bon Ami". I use them with a non-abrasive sponge.
The new kitchen is more lively with the stainless walls and varnish finished cabinets.
Her other renovations include a bathroom. Look at the transformation!
