Steph's kitchen has been a work in progress since she bought her house. The kitchen was really in need of updating as nothing had been done to it since it was built. Actually, it was pretty overwhelming to go through the list of what needed to be done.
When she first moved in, we did the bare minimum before we ran out of steam to do anything else. We cleaned everything, took down the wallpaper and painted, put down new flooring, and swapped out the 90's gold handles for sleeker silver ones. We labeled the cabinets and drawers in anticipation of taking them down and painting, but that project never got started!
Four years later, a partnership with The Home Depot and Liberty Hardware, gave us the push we needed to complete the long overdue projects!
What we did in the mini makeover:
To learn more about the handle and knob install, see our post here.
We brought in our Mikita wet/dry vac from the garage to use with the Ridgid sander fitted with SandNet from Diablo. This step would have been a mess if we had not had the dust collection and SandNet that works so efficiently with it. We had virtually no dust from using a sander inside the house. Also, we used the Ridgid Foldout Panel light to brighten up Steph's dark kitchen. I need all the light I can get when I work! It's lightweight and adjustable to add light where needed.
To free up floor space we took the time during the mini makeover to install a Rev-a-Shelf pullout trashcan in one of the lower cabinets. This is definitely an easy upgrade, especially if you are planning to paint at the same time.
All finished! It's always fun to step back and admire a project once it's finished. It's amazing what a little paint, beautiful hardware and new lighting adds to a space. This mini makeover has certainly added value to Steph's basic builder's grade kitchen.
