So we put the cabinets back together for the sake of our house sitters while we were gone.
Finally, last week I started things rolling again.
Here are a few before shots:
Here is a photo of us last Thanksgiving! I get a kick out of this photo! (from left: me, my dad, my dad's fiancee Leah, and my sister Jessica)
Nathaniel sanding away!
Took ALL the cupboard doors and drawers fronts off. I used Kilz Spray paint wood primer.
The paint I chose for the cabinets is Benjamin Moore Collection in Marble White.Nathaniel also ripped down the old tile backsplash and I installed these cool decorative sheets from Rona
Here is the breakdown:
Paint- about $150
Holly's Custom Hood Vent-$40
White Faux tin wall tiles (backsplash)-$126
Linear Crystal Chandelier (Chintz & Co.)- a birthday present from my dad's girlfriend Leah!
So in the end our little kitchen facelift cost less than $500! Woohoo! And since we ended up doing a little at a time it didn't break the bank!
Ahhhhh! That was my sigh of relief that its finally done!
