Low budget kitchen make over

My daughter & son in law removed both walls to their living & dining rooms.
I was able to use the base, shelf & face frame of one of their old cabinets.
They purchased 2 badly damaged cabinets that that I used the doors & face frames from.
The old cabinet did not have drawers , so added drawers & Reshaped old doors to match the new ones. Made one large drawer in the damaged sink cabinet.
The tall cabinet was actually an upper, raised the counter top on it to make room for a drawer for both of her cutting boards.
There are lights under both sided of the bar top, in the glass shelves & motion lights under the toe kick.

After they lay the flooring i will install the fluted panels on the bar walls & they will be painted & distressed.
This was a fun project, we both like to repurpose things.

Woods: oak pine plywood mdf

Tools: table saw shaper miter saw router

Thanks !!
I like your turnings. I would like to start again.
I bought a used Craftsman lathe about 50 years ago, I turned a lot on it but it is worn out. I want to replace the bushings & keep it for small stuff & purchase a larger one
