I love all the tuscan kitchens I see on here and thats the direction I would love to go. I don't have a huge budget and would like to DIY when possible. We are going to put wood floors throughout the home. Scrape popcorn ceilings, update appliances. Take out top rows of cabinets and bulk head to open up the space. Reface cabiets take down wall paper and so on. I am so over whelmed. Any advice, tips, or where to start would be so appreciated. Or opinions! Thanks in advance and welcome to the 60's/70's! Need to add we are wanting to pretty much keep the footprint so it stays affordable. and manageable for us. Even though it is not the ideal lay out with the dining area stuck in the corner.
