My room makeover::
My kitchen was a dark space that needed to be freshened up, and three years after purchasing the condo, I was financially ready to take on that project. I bought new appliances, refinished the cabinets, replaced the lighting, installed a subway tile backsplash, new countertops, faucet, sink, glass doors, painted, and added open shelving. I worked on this project, and also hired a handyman. It cost approx $6,000 and took me about 3 months to complete.
My makeover advice::
Make sure you budget in more time than "expected" to complete the project. I went into my project with a very ambitious timeline, and it took me twice as long due to a number of things that were out of my control.
What I love most about my new space::
I love how much brighter the kitchen is. Before the kitchen was a very dark space, but with the updated cabinets, paint, and glass doors, the space feels completely different.
