Kitchen Update

6 Nov

…slowly but surely! Keep in Mind it was all PINK!!

Wow! What a process! Since we are squeezing the painting of the cabinets in whenever we have an extra hour or two it sure is taking a long time!

So far:

All uppers are complete

All lowers have been painted- drawers are back in place while the cupboards still need to be hinged back on

The ceiling has been painted (so much brighter!)

The walls have been patched and painted

Fabric for the do it yourself window treatment has been selected and is being sewn

New light above the sink has been installed. Light was only $11.50 purchased at a lighting sale (Real Deals- look at earlier posts for sale details) similar fixtures sell at Restoration Hardware for $100 +

Still to do:

Countertop- we were going to paint, but we have heard the product we were going to use is not so great so we are looking at replacing it

Floor-the floor is in rough shape, hopefully adhesive tiles will  help clean it up. This is only a temporary kitchen we plan on gutting the entire room in 2-5 years but the pink was just too hard to live with!

New cabinet drawer handles were ordered, we are just waiting for them to arrive. They were $17.00 each at the big box stores but I found them on-line for $2.19 each!

Paint is incredible! It entirely changed the look and feeling of this kitchen!
