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.

What is paint mud does that help protect wood with a lot of water exposure.

We are doing a complete renovation/remodel and I have tried to reuse as much as I can. My DH and I butt heads on it a little bit! A small scale example: He gave me a lot of grief for sanding and repainting the vent covers rather than buying new ones. Hey, it all adds up! :)

I'd love to see before and after pictures too! :)

I cannot wait for my floor to be put down, they are so pretty! I am painting the vent covers too! Every little thing helps. I am reusing and painting bookcase for a pantry. Painting China cabinet just not sure what to do with it. Going to have open shelves for my dishes.

I wish I was a good do it yourself-er.  :(

I'd LOVE to re-do my wood kitchen cabinets, but don't think they'd turn out at all if I did it.  The thing I need to do the most is my kitchen floor.  I'm going to try it and just pray for the best!

I have old wooden pieces that are layered next to each other (hate it...) and have to pull each one up individually.  Not sure what I'll put down when I get all those pulled up yet.  Everything is pricey :(
