I'm happy to say that mostly everything I had planned to do this year is done. I should be completely done by summer! One thing they don't tell you when it's time to paint your cabinets is that it is a true pain in the butt. That said, by painting them myself, I've been able to save money and purchase nearly all of my appliances without having to go into debt. I have a new range, a new dishwasher, new countertop and sink. The cabinets are painted and the backsplash is being tiled now. The only thing I haven't been able to get quite yet is a new refrigerator, but I have the model chosen and I'm saving to buy it by summer. My kitchen will look close to brand-new and I will have no new bills to pay. I know I would not be able to say that if I had either bought new cabinets or had paid to have them re-faced/painted.

Lovely armchair in the last photo and I liked the suggestions for simple updates such as changing door knobs, tiles and window dressings. These are great, low cost ways of updating a kitchen which, overall, you are happy with - Alice

Thank you all for comments...never saw responses until now, so apologies.

forzatalio...many thanks...range is black! Tiles were really lovely initially when the pine was new and much lighter...and I loved them but so much cooking in this house has really changed the wood. So much for my expensive double extractor!!
debanger3 - I'll save the tiles for the boiler room.. They have to go..!
jennycoe91...thank you.
I hope to put glass splash back...saw it done in a recent revamped kitchen...really lovely and many colours to choose from.
As for the painted cupboards...will get the professionals in...will have to wait a while for them!
Thank you all...
