Is hard but we are doing it. Reusing the cabinets, just restraining them and putting nice hardware on them. We are reusing the countertops by painting the laminate to a fresh color. We got a piece of wood that was part of an old gym floor at the school. It is so nice looks like butcher block, that was free and so excited about that part. The only thing we had to get was sheet rock and paint mud and tape floor that we looked long for and got a good price and looks great for laminate.
