I bought this house for $600 dollars at a tax sale auction and set out to remodel and redo it with a very small amount of money! It has been redone with free, recycled, repurposed items with paint being the only major expense! I searched all over town and hit curb piles, had friends, neighbors and whoever I could talk into keeping a look out.. watch for discarded items. Soon, people began to bring me things they thought might look good in my house! No area was free from scrounging, including the city compost pile where people dumped amazing treasures!
I've done a lot of diy work myself, like the tilework. Mostly because I couldn't afford better.
The cabinets were bought cheap (in 1992 from someone who was renovating their condo, and made to fit the space. There used to be a full window were the stove and microwave are now, and a wall where the fridge is, which explains the floor's patchy look as it transitions from maple to pine.
I don't have enough cabinet space, and a lot of unusable space above the cabinets. Also, countertop space is fairly limited. I love my pantry, though it does need a fresh coat of paint.

The front of the house is an ongoing "do it yourself" project, much of what we used is used and recycled materials (obviously not the plants! We broke up a concrete curved walkway and added crushed quartz sand and stepping stones. The split rail fence and plants, circle patio, vintage-rustic touches to the exterior are all done by my husband and I. The shutters around the small arch window are boards from a fence we took down in the back yard. I added the brick pavers to the corners of the house, the carved window topper was a yard sale find, and the shutters are made of reclaimed fence board. I'd like to add copper sheeting to the dome shape above the bay window and pull the "grass" (green weeds, to add more plants and natural walkways with sod areas around the metal patio chairs for the feet to enjoy.
