Finally, after a few months of working in the evenings and some weekends, and taking a long break to study for an exam, the kitchen is done.
Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations Kit on kitchen cabinets
Granite Tile on the counter
Ceramic Tile on back-splash
Now, finally my first floor looks inhabitable and is not cluttered with tools
It looks like there are some significant changes coming to my life in the next few months, and to accommodate them, I need to do some remodeling in my house. In particular, I need to:
1) Resurface the kitchen cabinets – the current kitchen is fugly – dark wood which has accumulated some grease on the surfaces.
2) Remodel first floor bathroom – it’s a half-bathroom, and it (still) has popcorn ceiling and vanity cabinet that seems to be from the 70-ies.
3) Remodel second floor bathroom – full bathroom with sick looking blue-colored bathtub, toilet and sink. No comments needed.
Of course, my current financial situation does not allow me to simply hire contractors, so I will have to do all (or most of it) in a DIY fashion. Time to break out those tools!
Kitchen Cabinets are the first in line – I can start working on them immediately without significant expenditures on materials.
