We bought an old fixer upper before my spouse lost his job. Now that we are financially unable to do as planned, I am trying to find a solution to my tiny kitchen with plastic counters that is separated by a "breakfast room" that is just as dingy thanks to the common floor of kitchen and breakfast. Any ideas that would not kill us financially? Notice floors. Not real brick. (Excuse the mess in the breakfast room, we were painting the sunroom)Thank you so much!
