Check out these smart and stylish kitchen projects that our House Tour participants are most proud of and then click through to view their whole home:Anna & Luby's Home Meets Showroom Proudest DIY: Kitchen cabinets. When we moved in we knew we wanted to keep the original Geneva cabinets, but because they were too far gone from smoke damage they needed to be repainted or replaced. The top cabinets were mustard yellow and the bottom were brown. We took all the doors and drawers off, as well as the oven face and door and took them to Maaco. We were able to have them all painted for about $300. We painted the original cabinets in place ourselves. It really made the original orange boomerang Formica countertop pop. Albie Design's Family Home Proudest DIY: The kitchen table, a team effort (as many of the DIY projects in my house are). My husband spotted the table at a construction site that was about to be demo'd. The table was originally a commercial butcher block, so he removed the legs and racks & sanded the top. Together we designed legs to be made be a welder. I love the way it turned out!!! Rustic meets modern. Mandy & Michael's Crafty Charm Proudest DIY: I painted the cabinets and installed the floor in the kitchen. I was pretty proud of the floor because I'd never done anything like that before. Caitlin and Levi's Youthful Loft with His and Hers Offices Proudest DIY: My kitchen was painted a really bright yellow when I moved in that I didn’t like. Instead of trying to paint over it, I decided to attach cardboard wall tiles from Mio Culture using a removable tacky. When we move out, cleanup will be a cinch. Bernard's Time Traveller's Life Proudest DIY: Having the balls to put up the kitchen walls, and using the paint color specified by my designer friend. Mike's Masculine Vintage Proudest DIY: Have you seen my kitchen?
