So, without further adieu, I’d like to introduce you to my new Kitchen (with a capital K):
So here we are prepping the doors for paint, actually Justin is. I sanded and painted the body of the cabinets inside, while he faced the mosquito filled tropics of our carport. But while I had to use a brush he got to use our brand spankin‘ new spray painter.
Oh and by the way, I got this great idea for painting the doors off of This Old House (I LUV TOH)- You put small screws in the top of the upper cabinet doors and in the bottom of the lower cabinet doors then you attach wire to the screws and you can hang them so they don’t get knocked and you can paint both sides at once.
I thought it would be fun to take a few pictures of details. I may add another post later when I have more time and more finishing touches ready to photograph in the house.
p.s. I thought I should give you an idea of cost.
tile: A total score at $1.56 a box,
plus 2 free boxes (from the day before) because they couldn’t find the price in the inventory
Cement board about $100 with screws, a million new screw heads etc.
Grout and thin-set : $50.00
Reused master bath cabinet free.
Cut several cabinets in half, free.
boxes above cabinets, recycled wood from a local church, free.
Paint, Ace hardware water based enamel 2 gallons about $60.00
Hinges and handles, clearance approx. 100.00
above sink, Habitat for humanity $10.00
Above Table Lowe’s Clearance 8.00 a piece
Prefab (ran out of time) approx $200.00
Paint on walls,
Back-splash left over from other projects
Green wall color, mis mixed 5.00 gallon
I made from approx 1 yard of $5.00 fabric.
Lowe’s approx $80.00
Habitat for Humanity $75.00

I guess that doesn’t include the price of the microwave, which I think was about 150.00 or less?
