$1,200.00 Kitchen Makeover

[Edit: Check out additional photos here! For photos of construction, click here and here for the Vent Hood tutorial. This was featured in Romantic Homes September 2011 more info on that here.]

My $1,200.00 kitchen remodel is nearly complete! Here is round one of photos!

I love photo mosaics. Picasa makes them so easy!

Mostly close up shots today because the rest of the room is a mess! I hope to get it put back straight very soon!

I love my new vent hood! I'm not quite happy with the silverware on the ledge--I'm not quite sure what I want up there--any ideas?

I love white Ironstone! Can you tell?

My everyday dishes are at arms length from the dishwasher! Yes I now have a dishwasher!

I finally have a place to put my giant punch bowl! It is so pretty with the sunlight hitting it.

Here is a close up shot of the cast iron brackets. I love that they have the number 103 in the design. Item or model number? They are the original chippy wonderful way I found them.

If you pay close attention to the photos you can see where I was re-arranging as I was snapping photos. My grandmother gave me this set of Depression glass mixing bowls. I got the soup tureen at Goodwill.

I have an obsession with trays! Can you have too many? The milkglass salt and pepper shakers were my great-grandmothers.

This is my $12.90 cutting board from Wisteria.com. It was originally $129.00 and I got it for 90% off!

The hardware is Martha Stewart's collection at Home Depot. Look for a post later this week with sources for items. The green Depression glass sugar jar was also my great-grandmothers.

I normally keep paper towels under the cloche, but ran out! Oh no! I re-purposed a vintage Barbicide jar for straws.

Pretty dishes look great stacked on cake plates. If you've never done this before, I recommend it!

Can you have too many Jello molds? I love how they look in an antique egg basket.

My grandmother gave me this--we call them potato salad bowls because her mother-in-law always served potato salad in it! She has picked a set up for my dad, aunt, and uncle, as well.

These mixing bowls are almost too pretty to use.

I need to find a white coffee maker--or maybe stainless steel. White or stainless? Hmmmmm. . . . .

Check back soon for the final before after shots, as well as a post on the vent hood, sources for similar items, and an over all cost break down.
