$967 Kitchen Redo

"No" - This is not my kitchen.

This kitchen was recently featured in This Old House.

Moral of the story: Never underestimate what you can do with $967!

We've all seen this type of kitchen..........



Hold onto your hat...........





The homeowners removed the cabinets and relocated the dishwasher and sink. Then they painted the cabinets chocolate brown. (The entire remodel was completed by the homeowners, so there were no labor costs.) The new tile backsplash cost $400. The new counters were $300.

Great job, don't you think?

Wow! I won't show this to Mr. Tide...he'll just question why I spent more than $967 on our kitchen remodel!!! They did an awesome job and it never ceases to amaze me what people can do for very little money.

Backsplash: Fabulous! Did they individually tile those small pieces?

I would rather do the labor myself, I'm a lot more dependable!
Love the glass tile work. It's looks like a whole new room.
