Under $400 kitchen remodel

So we were adventurous and decided to remodel our kitchen on a budget. The actual cosmetic work was under $400, although we did add a dishwasher, garbage disposal, and replace the tile.

Products: We used the rustoleum countertop transformations ($20), rustoleum cabinet transformations in espresso ($160 for 2 kits), 3 inch handles ($100 for 20 handles), stick on tile by smart tiles- shhh! ($50 for 6 sheets), and comfort gray for the walls ($20 for 1 gallon).

The cabinet transformations kit was time consuming but well worth it. It was nice that I didn’t need to think about the steps and that the kit was nicely packaged for me. It took me 3 separate weekends to finish. I should have installed the hardware first (I had veneer cabinets so i ended up with splinters/ peeling in the back but since it is on the inside I can live with it!) Enjoy:

Here is the kitchen stock photo from our real estate listing:

Added tiling, painted countertop, removed all the cabinet faces (the kitchen may have sat like this for over a month :/)

Heres a picture with and without the glaze. Since the color was so dark, it just made it slightly 3D and darker.

Put the cabinets back on:

And added the hardware!

All that is left is adding the light!

Laundry Room Remodel

This was the simplest room to remodel. We removed old appliances, shelving, and linoleum. We added tile, painted, and bought new appliances. We still need to add shelving, lighting and a curtain but this room is close to complete.
