The project started April 26, and ended like today with my hubby painting the floor trim to the bottom cabinets. All I have to say is it WASN'T a 3 Day JOB DIY NETWORK! haha! Those stinkin' commercials make it look so quick and fun to redo your cabinets. UHHH the only smiling I did was when we first started which lasted 10 minutes into the deglossing step, and when it was complete. Well, I take that back, I smiled most of the time my Man, and Dad did a great job together.
The bright side is we spent 80$ on the kit that did the entire kitchen, 40$ on the cabinets that go over the range micro(yeah didn't realize we didn't have the right cabinets until we already bought the micro so we had to fix it!), and 250$ on the over-the-range microwave. We saved a thousand or more dollars by DIY and spent Roughly 370$ for what looks like a brand new kitchen. Not too shabby if I do say myself! We are so happy with how it turned out! So here she is the before... and AFTER!
Ready for a change because mama no likey.
Fantastic eh?! LOOOOVE! Big Shout out to my Husby- thank you for all you do! AND my Dad who did a huge portion of this project! Love you DAD, you ROCK!
Happy Creating on a budget! :)
