We ripped up the floors, the counter, the backsplash, the baseboard, door trim, window trim...it scared the hell out of me when it was bare bones.
We hired our amazing tiler/good friend Rob who we have used many times in the past...he did the flooring from the kitchen back door, to the front door all through my hallway as well. He did the backsplash, and coordinated the install of our new quartz countertop.
We hired our good friend Paul who is an awesome carpenter to build us a wine rack, which rules! He also did all of the baseboards, and window trim in the kitchen, and throughout the hallway to the front door.
Our cupboards were in really good shape and we couldn't justify getting new ones. They just needed new colour. My friend Laura referred me to Leo, who transformed our cupboards into brand spanking new ones! He sands down the doors, and drawer covers four times, then paints them. Then he came back and sanded the sides of the cupboards that are attached to the wall and painted those.
We're still working on the other aspects of it (needed some time in between to think about choices) such as paint colour, and window coverings, light fixtures.
The end result is amazing...here are some photos, and one photo will show you before and after :)
