Okay, if you don't know we have been working on a kitchen renovation for the past four weeks. Lets take a venture down memory lane, shall we?
This is how it looked for about a year...
How refreshing is a new kitchen?!! I feel like a food network host every time I cook! (However, a dog and a cat don't make the best audience.)
Cost break down:
Labor... $0 (we did it, along with my parents)
Flooring (hardy backer board, mortar mix, grout, tile)....$1000 (Floor & Decor)
Counter tops (granite).....$2000
Appliances (dishwasher and stove).....$1100
2 Light fixtures.....$50 (Scott's Antique Market)
Backsplash....$50 (Floor & Decor)
Paint (ceiling, cabinets, and trim)....$45
(We will eventually add a new refrigerator to that total)
Changes we made:
Knocked down wall between main kitchen and breakfast area
Tore up flooring
Sanded and painted cabinets
Replaced existing countertops
Moved fridge and added cabinet
Updated light switches
Added microwave cutout
Let me know what your think..opinions or suggestions?
