Our Kitchen & Dining Room Remodel

2 Weeks
Advanced

We remodeled our kitchen & dining room (and pretty much the entire rest of the house) in the midst of moving into our home. It came out better than we had hoped for. Ran into several snags along the way...scheduling was difficult to say the least.

IN PROGRESS: The vinyl was a bear to remove, the underlayment was so hard and about a bazzillion floor tacks to pull up. At least I had a cute helper ;D

AFTER: I painted the cabinets using Maison Blanche Wrought Iron Vintage Furniture Paint. I used three coats & then topped it with Min-Wax Satin Water Based Poly Acrylic, three coats as well. Installed new stainless steel appliances.

AFTER: Chose to leave the cabinet doors off and display my custom cookbooks. Painted the inside of cabinet black, including the plug outlet. I have never used cabinets above the oven. They seem too small for much of anything, so this was perfect for my cookbooks!
