there are before and after pics. please let me know what you think. :) total cost was about 1,000.00( one thousand dollars) the wallboard is actually exterior grade. we sanded, primed and then painted. i like the worn look it gives.
the kraft maid cabinet that we used for the island came from a thrift store. the cost was 24.99 and we made the top.

Yours is the identical layout to the kitchen I am renovating including the window over the sink and pantry by the fridge.
The only thing I am doing differently is moving the fridge to beside the entrance door allowing me to shift the stove to the original fridge location. This will then allowing me to place a cupboard where the stove is and have better access to the dead cupboard space in the corner presently blocked by the stove.

Nice results on your reno.
