LMDS Project: Creating a French Country Kitchen on a Budget

268 ratings | 10918 views
This was my own personal labor of love! My condo kitchen in Duxbury, Massachusetts was small and totally outdated - complete with knotty pine cabinets and mis-matched appliances. I had the opportunity to do a trade deal with a local magazine where I would receive new appliances, so that big part was taken care of. Aside from labor - aka sweat equity - my financial outlay was less than $500.00. Together with a very good friend, we spent several months of Sunday afternoons making over the little kitchen into a beautiful and functional. In this video, I go through the entire process! - Design (and labor!) by Linda Merrill - After photography by Michael J.

What a beautiful transformation! I really enjoyed the use of photos in a video sequence with your narration. I love the story behind this makeover and of course the fact that you were able to be so creative on a small budget. I can see why you adore it so much.

Goodness, what do I love best about this remodel? I can't pick one! I adore the copper cake molds, the roman shade, the cabinets and the knobs the best I think. Wonderful job Linda, what a lucky client you had ;)
