The Kitchen is Done!

February 17th, 2008 at 07:15 am




It has been approximately three weeks, but for less than $200 - we painted our kitchen cabinets and added new brass hardware. I love the new look and it has brightened the kitchen up.

We had a dinner with 12 people today for DH's birthday - everyone was very complimentary about the cabinets and they could not get over how much it changed the look of our kitchen. I was going to add a new counter top for another $900 later on, but everyone said just leave it the way it is, they thought the kitchen as is would sell.

I have lived in this house for 25 years, it is going to be hard to leave when I sell, I raised all my children here and my nieces and nephews and are sad I'm selling too, a lot of memories here, but it will be nice to be able to do something different. Maybe when I get through this debt mess I could move south and get out of all this snow!

    Very pretty - yes I think the kitchen would be fine w/o any additional expense, counters look fine to me unless there is some giant burn mark somewhere and even so if it's strategically located could be covered up w/a plant or something. Big Grin
    Nice work!

    Thanks for your compliments, we are really enjoying the new kitchen; it is so bright now and makes the whole room feel much warmer. I just can't believe what a little labor, paint and hardware will do for you. I lucked out on the hardware - we had found handles and knobs at about $4 each and we needed 16 of them, then we went to a Job Lots and I found the same handles and knobs for $1.00 a piece, so I saved $48 and returned the first purchase to Home Depot. Made the whole deal much sweeter.
