Not everyone can afford to move into their dream home right off the bat. To get things just right, it takes time, money, and a lot of effort (if you plan to DIY!). This kitchen and its pink countertops had to go. Along with those, the cabinets, appliances, shelving, pantry door, and other features got a major facelift. Check out what this kitchen looks like today. You will NOT believe your eyes. Trust me.
Amazing, isn't it? It's a completely different space! The couple behind DIY home blog Chris Loves Julia, the owners of the home, didn't break the bank by changing everything all at once. They painted the cabinets and walls first, then slowly tackled all of the other projects. The total cost came to just over $10K and one of the owners, Julia, breaks it down below:
double oven $1700
range hood $150
pantry door $120
globe pendants $179
reed sconce $335
That's INCLUDING the appliances, people. It may seem easier to hire out the labor, but if you really want to save money, do-it-yourself! To see more pictures of the entire process, visit Chris Loves Julia!
