DIY Super TINY Kitchen Remodel or......Making Better Use Of A Small Space

After our bathroom remodel we jumped right
into fixing up our kitchen.

It had seen better days and was super un-functional.
Who ever "designed" our kitchen was not
(repeat was NOT) a space planner.

When the kitchen was new some time in the
1940's I'm sure it's cottag style cabbnits and
yellow tile was charming. Still pretty cute today
but, time had taken a toll on everything.

The placement of the entry into the kitchen
and into the garage left little to no countertops.
Try prepping a meal for four in a kitchen with
no countertops. Not having the power to levitate
I used the green house window as extra counter space.

Which kinda grossed me out.

As you can see everything in our old kitchen
was original. Right down to the ironing board
cabinet. Which held my spices. 

The only things we changed when we first moved
in was replacing the dark green faux marble
linoleum floor. We covered it over with a white
linoleum. White... not the best choice for a kitchen
floor but,  it wasn't faux green marble! Seeing how
the cabinet knobs were unexplainably missing
we replaced those with red round pulls.

We also added some cabinets over the stove
as well. There it was for 8 years.




.... crash...!!!!!

My youngest (with he help of my hubby)
took a crowbar and gutted the kitchen
all by him self.  ;)

My boys are such good helpers.

Oh, here is a picture of that green marble linoleum.
Who... what.... why...????

Ahhhhhh much better already. Potential.

Stay tuned for progress report coming soon.

Side note, nothing prepares one for the disgustingness hidden in
ones walls. I'll spare you the details, lets just say there not as cute as
