Where to start? How much to spend? What are the priorities? What color? These are just a few questions to ask before beginning.
Our kitchen really hadn’t been touched in about 10 years except just some new accessories and trying to change out the table and chairs.
- A new floor was a must
- Get rid of popcorn ceiling
- New light fixtures
- Paint walls
- Paint cabinets ??? Not now
- New blinds
- New hardware for cabinets
- Counter tops – something had to be done
- Appliances – still in the thinking stage, except a new hood
- New sink and faucet was the first priority
- Glass tile back splash
Thanks to Moen for my new sink and faucet. After some painting and working on the counter tops, these will finally get installed.How I would love new granite counter tops, it just wasn’t in the budget. I was introduced to a new product at Haven from Kitchen’s Redefined this year. Painted Paper Countertops. It’s almost like decoupaging your counter tops. I chose a darker gray, marble look. More details on this product soon.
I have loved my apple green, using accents of black and red, but ready for a more neutral look. Keeping the dark oak cabinets and doing white walls. There’s not really a lot of wall space, but this will be so much lighter.
First job complete was scraping the popcorn ceiling off – full post will follow. Messy job . This will be covered with Brewster’s Paintable Wallcovering which looks like beadboard.Painting has started.
Watch for updates soon along with a list of all products and how I used them.
