Kitchen Remodel
 
4 Attachment(s)
I recently completed my kitchen remodel, and though I would share some a few before and after pics. I did 95% of the work myself, and only hired out to install the electrical for the microwave, as well as cut the counter and install the sink. The cabinets are stock from Lowes, in which I painted, sanded some areas, stained the entire cabinet (what was painted) and wiped down, and then 3 coats of poly. I have a dark laminate floor to go along with it all. It took me a little over a year, but I got it complete.

Bottom two pics are before.

Glad to see the upgrade! I bet you love cooking in this kitchen now, I am a big fan of your counter top choice, what martial is it Stone or Wood?

Countertop is two pieces of in-stock laminate that Lowes sold.

My brother and I spent 2 hours in Lowes figuring out what we should do with the backsplash. After we decided and went back home, we changed our mind and spent another hour figuring it out with what we got. And yes, it didn't cost a whole lot of money. While it would be nice to have that expensive countertop, this looks just fine for the house. It's a whole heck of a lot nicer than what was there previously. The cabinet drawers and doors open. I have more countertop area, plus it's level. And it's always nice to have good lighting around the sink. The lights I installed are perfect to have on in the evening.
