Well, we did it... It's finally done. It only took about a week. I say "it's done" meaning the main parts our done. The main parts meaning, I can now take a before and after picture because the kitchen looks amazingly different. I mean night and day. I honestly didn't think it would turn out that well because I am not a great DIYer. I have done a lot of small things but nothing like tackling this old kitchen.
Here is what we did to our kitchen:
- Painted Cabinets
- Replacing Hinges and added handles
- Painted Countertops
- Replaced sink and faucet
- Replaced Over the Range Microwave
- Bleached tile
- Added Kitchen Island
In the next few weeks I will be posting more "How-To" posts on each of the above because I know when I first started researching things like cheap countertops I had no clue there was a paint or epoxy made for countertops. So look forward to those posts and hopefully I can help some people out just like other bloggers have helped me.
It was a lot of hard work but WOW what a difference and it is totally worth it. My husband and I can't stop staring at it HAHA. We are still waiting for the countertops to set so we can actually put stuff on them so everything is basically everything but at least the kitchen looks nice lol.
Since I have a really small kitchen I really want to reorganize my cabinets and drawers so that everything has a place and it's less cluttered. So I will also be posting some organizing tips on how I will be setting up my drawers, cabinets and pantries!
A lot to come but for now enjoy my kitchen with me!!
Thanks husband and family for all your help!!
