Herringbone hardwood floors and all new kitchen for $2300!

My husband and I spent the past few months updating our entire kitchen for $2300. We did everything - counters, cabinets, sink, floors, lighting, painting, the works. We are so in love, but our favorite part is the herringbone floors!! They were so tough but so worth it.

Here's a before and after:

We have tutorials for almost everything we did!! Please check out more here:
