It’s amazing how far you can stretch your kitchen renovation dollar when taking the DIY route. That’s how this kitchen makeover was achieved for only $1,449:

Even though the kitchen was not at all to their liking when they were considering purchasing the house, this couple purchased anyway with the thought of renovating it right away. And boy, did they! Even with all new countertops (gorgeous butcher block ones at that), bead board backsplash, lighting, flooring, partial cabinetry, paint (on walls and cabinets), sink and faucet, they came in on budget at only $1,449! The key here was DIY industriousness, which is truly inspiring.
