Project by: Karen

We just moved into a 1929 Tudor bungalow. The kitchen is small and has only one window. The upper cabinets made the room seem darker. In addition, they were hard for me to reach (I'm 5'2"). So I took them out and replaced them with open shelving in gloss white. The room was instantly brighter. I added storage in the pantry to make up for the lost cabinet space.

I then added a rug, new drawer pulls, and a chalkboard paint backsplash. A complete transformation of the kitchen for about $1100!
