When we first moved into our condo, the kitchen was the typical cookie cutter developer's generic kitchen. It currently still is a work in progress that I am completing on the weekends. I have taught myself everything that I have completed so far from the directions, YouTube instructions, and with a lot of patience...
I started with tiling the back splash with a neural colored porcelain tile. I decided to purchase the electric wet-saw and it was a BIG help and only $90 at Lowe's. I then used tile mastic to adhere the tile to the wall. I was sure to keep my tiles numbered when cutting them in order to be sure they ended up in the right spot. After grouting the tiles, I gave them a good scrub. When it was completely dry, I caulked near the sink. It turned out gorgeous, and I did it all myself!!
After the back splash, I decided to tackle the cabinets. I purchased the Rust-Oleum Interior Paint and Primer in One Kit for only $150 from Lowe's. This kit worked great because I did not have to sand the wood before painting. Instead, I scrubbed the wood with a rough sponge with a deglosser. It required a lot of elbow-grease, but it did not take too much time. I painted the cabinet doors in the garage, which required 3 coats of paint to be sure they were thoroughly coated. After a finishing protective coat, I hung them back up. I then added modern sleek hardware to finish them off. I love how they turned out.
As you can see, I had the faucet switched out and the light is currently in the process of being hung. Once the budge allows, we will upgrade the appliances to stainless steel and the counter to granite. Check back for the final product!!
