My Kitchen Redo… Time to DIY

We have been house hunting and it is not going well. This housing market is bad right now. Bad for sellers and bad for buyers with less than perfect credit. So for now we will stay here. I am going to do lots of upgrade to our home. We will also continue saving and working on our credit so that we can get a country home that we dream of in time.

But for now, it is diy time! I am starting with my least favorite room…MY KITCHEN! It is a VERY scarey thought but I want you all to know that if I can do this ANYONE can! That is why I want to take you on this diy trip with me! I want to update the cabinets, countertops, backsplash and island. I have to do all this on a next to NOTHING budget! Can it be done? I want to prove it can!

Here is my before picture. Ugh I know! Ugly brown cabinets and even worse formica counter tops.

I also HATE the island. It is basically NOT usable. I want to make it a flat surface that will allow us to eat there and cook there.

So here we go! I will report back as soon as I can. Wish me luck!
