before and after, cheap on the fly kitchen makeover

2 months ago

This was under 1,000 if you don’t include all new appliances (we’ll use those in our real remodel). We are planning a total gut of the kitchen, but my kids are small and I work nights and can’t handle the disruption right now. So i did this myself to just see if I could make it livable. I really did not want to spend much money or time on it. It was kinda unplanned. I started with peel and stick on the floor and then did the backsplash. Then decided to just paint the cabinets a fun color. This is by no means my dream kitchen. But it’s definitely a more pleasant place to pack my kids’ lunches. I’m still debating on either painting the counter (though I read you can’t use the counter for awhile) or covering with contact paper.

Cost breakdown-
Appliances- 6000ish
Floor tile- 60
Backsplash- 157
Paint and primer and supplies- 200
Cabinet hardware (still not all on)- 65
Over head light- 130
Can light converter and light- 25+35
Kitchen faucet- 85 + 40 for air gap and garbage disposal button

$797 without appliances. $6797ish including them.
