A Creative Kitchen Renovation on a Small Budget

This kitchen is central to a 1908 San Francisco cottage that was restored and lovingly renovated. Using a sink that was purchased from a salvage yard and recycled floorboards, and an original O'Keefe & Merit stove, the owners updated the kitchen but kept an old-time quality. The open faced cabinets were custom made to keep the space light, and the ceiling is outdoor "novelty" siding that was stained white. The creative paintjob, each two-foot square is a complementary shade, keeps the space playful and creative.
