    Very nice Shannon! Small improvements make all the difference.

  2. Hilshere1 on November 5, 2022 at 5:27 am

    Great job! I totally agree with you on waiting. I’ve lived in my 1950s house for nearly 2 years. You absolutely must live in it fora at least a year before you do renos. I too have had to do a budget friendly makeover on my kitchen to make it more functional until It eventually will be gutted but that’s at least a few years down the road. For now, at least it is functional and works for us.

  3. Viv'sALittleBitCrafty on November 5, 2022 at 5:27 am

    New here 😊 and all I will say is WOW your kitchen is one of the nicest kitchen’s I have seen here on YouTube. I think it is gorgeous, unique and so not cookie cutter like many on here. It is great to see something with a personality, I just love it.😍

  4. Dvine Dzine on November 5, 2022 at 5:28 am

    I love the white with the green tile! The tile brings the charm.

  5. Jeannes1234 on November 5, 2022 at 5:32 am

    Your kitchen renovation turned out great. It looks so fresh and bright now.

  6. Pink G on November 5, 2022 at 5:36 am

    You are a nice person, and the kitchen is very cool after modifications 👍😍

  7. Tiny Kitchen Big Flavor on November 5, 2022 at 5:38 am

    I absolutely love your kitchen!!! So airy and bright love it… Great job guys!!!

  8. Tiny Kitchen Big Flavor on November 5, 2022 at 5:40 am

    Funny thing is, I am in the process of renovating my tiny kitchen and I have been looking for inspiration when I came upon your video and I love what you guys have done.

  10. Zena Asura on November 5, 2022 at 5:41 am

    Grand. you painted the beautiful woodwork white.

  11. My Haunted Life on November 5, 2022 at 5:42 am

    My kitchen cabinets have the same hardware. I have not only knotty pine cabinets, but also my wainscoting in the kitchen and dining area. I hate to cover it it, but I can’t imagine refinishing everything. I also have the scallops over the sink. They were in the dining area and I yanked them.😂 I’ve been here 20 yrs and it’s time for a change.🙄 I really want to go with the 50’s style. My kitchen is a HUGE space. It’s basically a big square room in which they put a kitchen. Would love to add more cabinets, but…. Anyway, thanks for the ideas. I’ve got hardwood under layers of linoleum. Uuughhh. Gonna check out your husband’s channel now. Thanks again!🙏

  12. Going Green Mom on November 5, 2022 at 5:43 am

    Looks great!

  13. Organized With Joy on November 5, 2022 at 5:43 am

    Hey Shannon! I LOVE how your kitchen turned out! I love the mint green tile honestly! It looks so clean and cozy now with all the bright white and mint green! Thanks for sharing!😊💗✨

  14. Jackie of All Trades on November 5, 2022 at 5:44 am

    100% Agree that this fix totally elevated your space. It’s a blessing to have handy fixers in the family that can patch things in a pinch. Thanks for mentioning REAL LIFE, and how you have to fit in the work where you can. Not like a TV show where it all gets knocked out in a weekend. Slow and steady wins the race! I love the work you did with the design, paint and decorations and how your husband and kids pitched in as well, especially the flooring footage (adorable). Definitely this was a family affair and the results were so worth it. Thanks so much for sharing.

  15. Leanne R on November 5, 2022 at 5:44 am

    I love the white and green. The same colours as my kitchen.

  16. Becky Hp on November 5, 2022 at 5:44 am

    I love it. I wouldn’t replace the cabinets

  17. gabrielpaulsmom on November 5, 2022 at 5:46 am

    That is literally my kitchen except I have brown speckled countertop.

  18. Christina on November 5, 2022 at 5:46 am

    Love the idea of moving the fridge! It really changes the space!

  19. GrandmaSewHappy Homestead on November 5, 2022 at 5:47 am

    So cute how it turned out

  20. Barbara Hvilivitzky on November 5, 2022 at 5:50 am

    This was great! My kitchen is not functional at all – sink on one side and a long way on the other side is the stove – with no counter space near stove – so I get my exercise going from one side to the other. However, that said, I do try to set up for success by zoning the spaces for what they are for with not stressing out over the dream kitchen I would like! I will never be able to afford a kitchen make-over so have to learn to love the one I have!!!

  21. a anon on November 5, 2022 at 5:51 am

    looks fabulous. i would have to cover that damaged tile next to the stove either w/ a quick fix-large cutting board or some peel & stick tiles.

  22. MessyMoneyMama on November 5, 2022 at 5:51 am

    Would Grant be able to do all the cabinetry himself for the big renovation? That would make a big money difference but I love your retro kitchen as is too!

  23. SHIRYON on November 5, 2022 at 5:53 am

    It looks great and you ended up with a pretty and very functional kitchen that will serve you well for years. Grant is very talented….you guys are a great team.

  24. TheBombshellBabydoll on November 5, 2022 at 5:53 am

    Thr decorative hood cover is so cute…. it kinda took away from the retro. 🙁

  25. TheBombshellBabydoll on November 5, 2022 at 5:54 am

    I feel like it would really add to the vibe with a checkered floor

  26. Lelia M. Cleveland on November 5, 2022 at 5:55 am

    Great idea! Great job, you guys!

  27. J Bellbird on November 5, 2022 at 6:01 am

    You did a great job on your kitchen, love the mint tiles. Now it all looks airy and spacious, very functional for a family✨

  28. Cynthia on November 5, 2022 at 6:01 am

    It’s adorable ~ I love it Shannon!!

  29. Michael Desilets on November 5, 2022 at 6:02 am

    Y didn’t u just get a new dishwasher? The opening was already there

  30. Amanda Swilley on November 5, 2022 at 6:03 am

    Your kitchen is so adorable. The original details, such as the mint back splash and the cabinet hardware, give it a charm that you can not find in modern kitchens. You’ve done a great job of making it functional yet keeping the original charm.

  31. AllThingsShannon x on November 5, 2022 at 6:04 am

    Oh wow I love watching these types of videos! You done such an amazing job, you should be proud of yourself! I recently transformed our kitchen on a £30 budget 🥰 Have a great day and love from a small Youtuber ♥️

  32. Sandy McClay on November 5, 2022 at 6:05 am

    I have the original kitchen in my 1960’s home….very much like this!

  33. Opal Durham on November 5, 2022 at 6:09 am

    Love your kitchen. Looks like a happy place.

  34. Moran Guy on November 5, 2022 at 6:10 am

    Very nice trqnsformation. I would get ride off the green wall and paint it white or grey or even dark blue….

  35. Kimberly Allen on November 5, 2022 at 6:10 am

    I can’t believe it’s been two years since you moved — I was following you when you were in your condo. I love your 1950’s kitchen. It’s so cute.

  36. Linda Fernandes on November 5, 2022 at 6:13 am

    Great advice….I love your kitchen and the mint backsplash and walls.

  37. Jennifer Elaine on November 5, 2022 at 6:14 am

    I absolutely love this kitchen! That beautiful tile! 😍 Beautiful!

  38. Luz King on November 5, 2022 at 6:16 am

    Love your kitchen. My house is from the 1940’s. The linoleum was lifting up. I cut part of it. Turned out it was like 3-4 layers. So I just would put kitchen rugs. Until we could afford to redo the kitchen as well. 10 years later. :).
    Did it ourselves. Takes time.

    You are a good designer, with lots of talents.

  39. Илья Тихомиров on November 5, 2022 at 6:16 am

    Красивая,чистая,уютная кухня! Лайк!

  40. Sharon Shmuel on November 5, 2022 at 6:16 am

    The transformation is amazing looks so lovely now lol 💖

  41. amybee40 on November 5, 2022 at 6:17 am

    I replaced my broken dishwasher with a set of wide drawers, and have never looked back!

  42. Tracy Gayer on November 5, 2022 at 6:18 am

    Great transformation!

  43. lmdav on November 5, 2022 at 6:18 am

    I prefer the before – kitchens today have no character!

  44. Sarah sayed on November 5, 2022 at 6:18 am

    I love this kitchen. I’d never change it.

  45. Cali Flowers 💐 on November 5, 2022 at 6:18 am

    This kitchen is what made me hit the subscribe button! No regrets! 🧡

  46. Debbie Hawkes on November 5, 2022 at 6:19 am

  47. staceystar* on November 5, 2022 at 6:20 am

    Very Pretty !! Updated But kept Some of The 50’s Look & Vibe !! Good Job !!

  48. Art-Gallery on November 5, 2022 at 6:20 am


  49. Dreama Wofford on November 5, 2022 at 6:21 am

    I LOVE this!!! 💘 If I could live with it, I would keep it this way. In my opinion, no reno needed! I love the character of your home, and your minimalist techniques are awesome. You do good work!!🌼🌿
