Personally, I think the hue of the doors are dated.

Take a trip to your local paint store and look at the wood stain color samples. By choosing a stain that complements your color scheme you will preserve the look of real wood and add a refreshing change at the same time.

Doors in a home are like jewelry to an outfit and I hope you find a jewel of a solution that suits your taste.

I recommend placing the microwave under the cabinet above the kitchen sink either on a shelf or hung with a bracket attached to the underside of the cabinet.

Place removable wall paper on the kitchen cabinets on some or all of the panels inside framed area.

New cabinet knobs could add pizzazz.

I would've used a tray, maybe one with handles, instead of the plank top. The tray can be used for serving or for displaying barware or liquor bottles.

Repurposing the chest for a friend is a labor of love which I admire plank top and all!

I love how you mixed modern and traditional elements.

Your walls, toilet, vanity, sink and floors are all light/white.

In the future you can add hints of color by changing the lower half wall color, painting the vanity a soft color, swapping the vanity knobs or changing the toilet seat lid to one with color/pattern.

Your makeover is phenomenal!

The refinished floor looks beautiful, but for an inexpensive quick update I would lay down linoleum that is not permanently glued which incorporates the colors of the countertops, appliances and cabinets for cohesiveness and to add drama.

At least you won't be reading comments that criticizes your upholstery for not incorporating piping.

When the budget allows consider replacing the shelves on the wall above and to the right of the sink with floating shelves that have hidden brackets for a more streamlined appearance.

The seating and work surface the trestle table provides is fabulous!

It would be beneficial if you also post the ceiling height, width of the door, your budget to complete the project and if it will be strictly a DIY project or if you will employ professional help.


How Can I Downsize to a 6'x6' Bedroom? Good Questions

Typographical errors are occasionally on an AT post and I usually figure out what was actually meant to be typed, but this time I have got to get clarification. Is a "Food Porn Box" as referred to regarding gifts from "Firebox" really a gift item or a typo? If it's not a typo I can't imagine what a Food Porn Box is!
