Spotlight on the Kitchen

Kimba over at A Soft Place to Land has picked my kitchen redo as one of her favorites in her weekly Do It Your Day posts! I am so honored to be picked, and thanks for the many comments on my blog! I posted a comment attached to that post, but thought I would reiterate what I wrote here:

My husband and I did all the work on the kitchen project, without the help of professionals. Just to clarify a few things on what changed:
-Primed and painted the cabinets white
-Tore out a tile counter top and replaced it with one from Ikea
-Retiled the backsplash with white subway tile
-Installed under cabinet lighting from Ikea
-Painted the walls green

And we did it all for about $1000. Saved so much by doing it ourselves!


  1. AMAZING. And much deserved, Liz!

  2. Liz,

    I have had your kitchen remodel posts saved as "favorites" on my computer for MONTHS, waiting and waiting to do my own kitchen redo. Not only do our spaces have almost the exact same layout, but your budget-conscious and style-conscious redo really caught my attention. I would love to ask you some questions as my hubby and I start gathering info to make decisions about our own renovation. So, if you see this comment, pease, please email me at rebekahturbeville (at) gmail.com if you're willing!

    Either way, great work!!!
