16. And finally, this kitchen that barely even resembles what it used to look like.

"My parents and I spent a lot of time on this kitchen when I bought my house three years ago. My mom and I spent days sanding down sand-textured paint off the wall only to find two layers of wallpaper under that. My dad and I refinished the cabinets and installed the farmhouse sink. I absolutely love it."Submitted by kayla869
