Happy Wednesday! Today is the big day– the day I’m sharing the remodeled kitchen reveal. We’ve been enjoying this space for a while now and it’s changed our lives, I tell ya. And the best part? The entire makeover cost us under $2000. First, let’s look at a few befores, just for old times sake.

The only thing I miss is the stained glass cabinet doors.
Ok folks, here she is, all shiny and bright and new in video form, naturally, with a starring role by miss Ruby Sue! (wait for the outtake at the verrrrry end)

Ok, so lets break it all down. Demo for this room was minimal. We only tore out the backsplash, and replaced the hood and cooktop (tutorial coming next week!). The rest we pretty much worked with what we had, and added a few new things that freshened up the space and also made it more current.
I showed you how to install under cabinet lighting, add moulding detail to your existing kitchen island, how to paint kitchen cabinets the right way (so they look sprayed!), I replaced the stained glass, showed you how to replace the faucet, and how to transform your ugly blinds into roman shades. We also showed you how to install a subway tile backsplash and added this island light Kenroy Home sent me a while back.
My goodness, when you put it all together like that, it makes it sound like it was a lot of work! Ha! I’ve learned if you do things yourself, you pay more in time than money. This was a time consuming room, but we saved so much money. I can’t even imagine how much more we would have spent if we would have torn everything out and started anew.
Up tomorrow, it’s a state holiday here in Utah and I’m sharing the amazing cookie recipe we made in the video. It’s a family favorite!
