Hiring out painting, wallpaper removal. Years ago I spent a month removing wallpaper from my dining room. The man I hired did my living room in one day and the walls were totally prepped and ready for paint. I painted that year but never again. Since I'm in my 60s (and I'm working full-time on my feet) it's a pain for me to go up and down the ladder without getting leg cramps, hiring out the painting is a godsend. I still can't bring myself to use a cleaning service like most people but maybe someday....

Oh praise The Lord! We are ready to retire in Florida and 99% of the kitchens we see look identical to your before. I am saving this after photo to remind me of what a dated kitchen can look like without breaking the bank!
Well done Lynn!!!

Agree with ciddyguy--after pics should ALWAYS be taken from same spot as before.

I, too, would hate to loose the cabinets for something that gets dusty\greasy. perhaps white uppers and contrasting lowers for more color. It looks calm, clean and bright, but does need a jolt of color, even a soft one like a watery blue or gray. Major kudos for the diy-ers!

I am going to need loads of ideas soon. We are retiring to Florida and the kitchens are stuck in the 80s complete with flat melamine cabs that have wood pulls! Thanks for these stylish ideas--keep them coming!!
