DIY kitchen remodel | HometalkMart 20, 2021
One of the longest running projects in my house was my kitchen remodeling! I’ve been working on realizing my dream kitchen for five years. I made mistakes along the way and it took me some time to figure out what I wanted, but it was worth it in the end. Everything in this remodel was done by husband and me – with the exception of two power outlets that were hard-wired into the floor – so it was a real DIY kitchen!
The conversion cost around $ 3,000, with an additional $ 4,500 going to devices that died along the way. Full information (colors, cost breakdown and product information) can be found on the blog.
Update: You guys have been great with all of your feedback. The three biggest questions were: 1. Where is the microwave? 2. Why did you cover this window? 3. How did you cover that window? I thought I would answer them here for you.
1. Microwave: I brought it to the island by converting trash drawers into pull-out drawer.
2. I covered the window because of a peeping neighbor. Our house is on the slope of a hill so the window is at street level. A neighbor made comments about the work we did in the kitchen, but he has never been to our house. I made a curtain that covers the arch part (if you look really carefully you can see the ledge in the center where the curtain ties are). It looks like I covered more of the window, but 90% of what I covered is the wall.
3. The shadow was created using my no-sew window tutorial. You can find it on my hometalk page or on my website (http://www.therozyhome.com/blog/no-sew-tie-up-shades). Hope this helps and thanks again for all the wonderful comments!

I painted the inside of the cabinets with a paint I created.
I made the island in a herringbone pattern and then washed it white.
