We started by ripping out the floor which showed us it was time to replace a few parts of our subfloor.
The cabinets are made from MDF aka partical board. The laminate countertops have seen better days and need to updated. We have all black appliances not my choice but hubby has replaced half when I met him so I am going with it. We have now replaced all of the appliances.
I dream of a bright white kitchen. I like the idea of composit black sinks, new black multi colored countertops, ideally we would get cabinets.
I started pricing new cabinets and we were looking to add on the adjacent wall a workspace and cabinets. The other wall measures 6ft with a corner and additional wall 5ft it was meant to be an eat in kitchen although, I need the workspace as we have very little prep space.
I I priced my dream and it was the upper 3k and that was with out floors. Our budget is $1,000. Well that is how the cookie crumbles.
Off to pin test we go. I found a great cheap inspirational kitchen. http://sandandsisal.com/2013/09/budget-cabinet-makeover.html
It looks amazing and right up my alley. Hubby and I did not use any wood glue as we have a nail gun and plenty of putty, and time. My complete shopping list for wallpaper, nails, primer, paint, deglosser, cleaner, molding etc. was $128. That will do just the cabinet makeover. I used crown molding in 15ft bars for .51 cents a ft. It came to $38.
Here is what we did.
Adding the goopy white wallpaper I found for $15 at Home Depot covers 56 sq ft!!
I wouldn't purchase it again.
After primer 2 coats of exterior/interior Sherwin Williams reflective white semi-gloss. Really fantastic *roll on do not brush it will be ugly.
