What challenge have you overcome in your kitchen? We were fortunate that when we moved in the appliances had already been updated to stainless steel and the floor had new tile but little else had been touched. The first challenge was the acoustic drop tile ceiling which we replaced ourselves with drywall a little over a year ago. The second challenge we took on was the small renovation, in a small kitchen on an even smaller budget. Continued

What challenge have you overcome in your kitchen? Continued
...replacing the cabinet door and drawer fronts on the right side (a challenge as the cabinets are original to the home), replacing and adding 4 cabinets on the left side (which added much needed cabinet space), installing butcher block counter tops, an apron front farm sink and a subway tile back splash for all under $1000!

What's the story of your kitchen?
Our home is a 775 sq. ft. 1938 Cape Cod with wonderful bones, but the kitchen was one area we felt (after 3 years of talking ourselves into it!) that we could bring some of the character and charm back to life.

What is your favorite meal to cook here?
My husband is a teacher and an excellent cook so I am fortunate that he gets home earlier than me each day and often greets me with a warm meal. Our favorite foods to cook together though are fresh Italian meals with basil and tomato from the back yard garden (when it is not snowing in Ohio!)
