I had the EXACT same cabinets, and painted them. My boyfriend and I ripped off the center wooden panel, filled any holes with wood putty and painted them an offwhite/cream. We probably only spend about $90 to redo the cabinets but everyone thinks they're new! :) Check them out in my own AT home tour.

We also had a very very similar backsplash and mounted mosaic tiles directly on the formica-ish backsplash. I have before and after pics - hope it helps!

I'm insanely thankful you started this website.. I have this site as my homepage at work, and everytime I open my browser, I get distracted and forget why I opened the web in the first place. :)

Eeeek!! This is so exciting. I live in a studio with my boyfriend (and 13 year old cat!) and am incredibly proud of my 483 square foot total DIY renovation. Not all girls can re-tile a backsplash and install wood flooring! :)

Hey Lisa-

I'd recommend a really large scale peice. You can find affordable art from well known artists at www.lumas.com.

Hope this helps-
