Hi Every one,
Finally,its time to start talking about a project I sneaked peak on my Facebook page long time ago.Oh Yes!!.. I am renovating my kitchen almost all by my self.I have learnt lots of lessons, failures (and returns ) but before I start talking about what I am doing and what I need to do more.Lets start from “The Before”.I really love my kitchen,a big and bright walkout kitchen with lots of cabinet and a window above the sink .I didn’t touch and loved as it is more than five years ,now its time to do a make over.We updated our glass top stove 2 years ago to gas cooking range.This is the best decision I have ever made,I prefared to go for an upgraded model with a seperate bottom baking drawer for some quick baking and warming lunches.We choose GE profile,if you are tired of using glass top stove I would 100% suggest you to switch to gas stove(will share my experience soon).I desperately want to change the ugly black range hood which was intially white and I spray painted black as a temporary update (that last more than 4 years).
My dish washer that comes with this house broke down I guess it was older than I expected, so we are going to buy new one soon.I definitely going to change window treatment,but no idea at this moment.
So what else is happening here…updating my kitchen cabinet and counter top and yes back splash.You can see my oak cabinets,black laminate counter top and bare walls.
My oak solid wood cabinets were in pretty good condition thats why I want to keep them.I am going to paint them.I have lots of cabinets and drawers,Its a bigger than average kitchen.I need to be prepared for lots of work,lots of sanding priming and of course patience. If you are intending to paint anything you need to wait between coats and it may takes more than the estimated time you would ever think of.I wanted backsplash that goes upto the ceiling and Wanted it so much so I already removed the cabinet thats right in between my window and my walk out door.
You can see the big bare wall after we removed the cabinet.What else,I will change light fixtures and other time to time updates and upgrades.Are you ready?I am enjoying the change so far,stay tuned and get inspired with me.
