They Were Sick Of Their Old Kitchen, The Solution Was An Act Of DIY Brilliance.

Do-it-yourself projects are fun things to do that can make your home a better place to live while saving yourself a ton of money. When contractors come in and do the job for you, you just never know what kind of work you’ll get out of them. Some of them are top notch and are very good but others are only there for the paycheck and don’t really care about the work. That paycheck can also break the bank for you because there are too many people out there that overcharge for their services. However, even the ones that have reasonable rates can break your bank.

Doing it yourself will guarantee that the care goes into the project that you desire. Nobody will care about your project as much as you do. The amount of money that you can save by purchasing the materials yourself is absolutely amazing. There is no third or fourth party marking them up even higher on you.

Here you will see a kitchen that was completely redone in two weeks at the total cost of right around $2,000. You will be hard pressed to find this kind of work done by an outside party at that price!

The kitchen before the remodel.

The kitchen wasn't all that bad to begin with but a change was needed.

Adding the new fridge panel.

The area around the fridge was redone to make things more accessible. It wasn't easy work but well worth it when all was said and done.

The cabinet trim

Adding trim to the cabinets wasn't very expensive at all. Lowes had the nails and trim for around a hundred dollars.

All torn apart

What was a nice kitchen is halfway there to being an even better one.

An oil based primer was used on the cabinets.

Using oil based primer takes a long time. Only one coat per day can be done because of the long drying time. It's worth it at the end though because cleaning is much easier.
