This project took a looong time. Years. About 5 years ago, I reconfigured the kitchen to fit the way I live and cook: no upper cabinets, a small under counter fridge. A gas stove/oven. There was no dishwasher, as I prefer to wash them by hand.
When I decided to sell the house, I knew my lack of a dishwasher and half fridge would hurt my ability to sell. So I bought a dishwasher (on sale for $480) and a smallish traditional fridge (on sale for $548) and had them installed. I painted everything, including the trim around the windows, which was the one thing from the original remodel that I had never gotten to. I installed some shelves for dishes. Here are the results.
The dishwasher was installed in the spot where my half fridge used to be.
