Vanessa Brunner added this to 24 Dramatic Kitchen Makeovers
10. Tennessee Ranch KitchenAFTER: Although she was intent on renovating the apartment attached to her stable, Houzz user prtiris knew she needed to work on a tight budget. Buying salvaged cabinetry and reusing and replacing almost everything in the original space helped her save some serious cash. Some of the apartment's original cabinetry was used to reconstruct and build the island. Leftover poplar boards from the ceiling were painted, waxed, stained and then nailed on top of the old cabinetry. New kitchen size: 11 by 12 feetBudget: This DIY kitchen cost $5,000.Location: Wild Heart Ranch, Sewanee, Tennessee
