    • Very nicely done. I'm moving into a new house in the next few months and for the first time I'll have a walk-in closet. This gives me some great ideas for that upcoming project. Thanks for submitting your project.

    • I really love the shallow drawers along the hanging rods. I've never seen that and it looks like an incredibly useful way to use otherwise wasted space.

    • This makeover is beautiful! It's easy to tell you put a lot of effort and skill into this transformation. The cabinets are masterfully designed, especially the unique spice cabinets on the side of the microwave- what a great storage solution. Was this part of a total home makeover?

      • Yes and no, the rest of the house has been updated (over time), and the previous kitchen was somewhat updated as well. New paint, added a pantry cabinet. However, as most people can relate, you try to update one thing, but you need to update something else, etc., etc., Therefore the original plan was to fix some of the broken cabinets and move the dish washer, however you couldn't do one without doing the other and therefore the project became a complete gut to the wall and studs in some areas, the only thing not touched was the floor. The new kitchen was simply too small for a reach in pantry, therefore the spice racks were a great alternative.

    • Another awesome kitchen project! The lighting above the cabinets looks really nice. What a neat design with the corner shelving space, too. Did you create this design yourself?
      By RYOBI Nation, on August 23, 2016
      • Yes, this project was for family members who's home was hit by the Christmas Day Tornado in Dallas. They wanted to update the kitchen island, however they wanted something a little different than just the traditional granite. Therefore, I recommended a wood counter top, we looked online and found wood counter tops were actually very popular, therefore I put together a design that would have traditional kitchen cabinets on one side but book shelf type cabinets on the other side. There is an existing wall between the cabinets that houses the electrical and plumbing, therefore the 45 degree angle is because of the existing wall, that we lowered but of course we did not want to move due to the plumbing running through the floor. I decided to add the beed panels, and the two shelves in the middle. Raising the cabinets and putting sofa table legs under them, was more of a functional design to keep access to the outlets. Yes, this is an original design, one part function and one part creative. LOL. Thank you!
