The Great Kitchen Update!

The Great Kitchen Update!
Since the kitchen is the heart of our home, we renovated the roombefore we moved in by:
  • removing a cabinet and added a dishwasher
  • removing the double oven and replaced it with that cabinet
  • painting the existing cabinets white
  • painting the existing knobs and hinges with oil-rubbed bronze spray paint
  • spray painting and installing a new light fixture
  • painting the room


After we moved in, we:


Here’s the opposite side of the room where we removed the double oven, replaced it with the cabinet, and added new countertops. We also started painting the stairway for a future project.

Here’s the view of the whole room!
Total Cost? $229!
· Rustoleum spray paint in oil rubbed bronze, $5
· paint for walls and cabinets, $15
· Kilz Primer, $10
· Granite-look laminate Countertop: $130 at Menards
· Delta Faucet, new in an unopened box labeled ‘as-is’, $50
Hookups for the dishwasher, $10
· Light fixture, found on freecycle, painted ORB, free.

· Dishwasher, given to us by family, free.
· Hinges and knobs, existing, painted ORB, free.

In the future, we’d like to:
  • replace the laminate tile with wood floors
  • paint the remainder of the trim in this room
  • paint the door in this room
  • paint the walls and above the cabinets a shade that is similar to the color of the tiles on the backsplash
  • replace hinges with new and add glass knobs

I haven’t posted on our kitchen in a while, but doing so makes me so excited. I love the transformation and can’t believe the difference between the two!
