The kitchen renovation

This old kitchen was swollen from water in some places so had to be replaced. The linoleum on the floor was way past its use by date having been laid in 1975.We had the original floorboards limed and got a kit kitchen from an auction site on the web.I didn't come with bench tops we had to buy them separately but I got a good deal by just buying what they had on special without seeing it. That way avoiding the temptation to go over budget.Keeping  the cost as low as possible was our goal.

We painted everything white to make it look bigger and added an old couch and dining room suite from a thrift shop, I recovered the chairs in a word print.
