First, demo day. Removed cupboards in the middle of the countertop to open up space and added recessed lighting. I sanded the oak cupboards 4 times, painted them, and put all new hardware. The wife did not like the backsplash, so completed a subway tile backsplash to her liking. After that the countertops where not to her liking. Kreg jigged 1x3 hard maple boards and glued them together (large task), and then ripped up the linoleum floor and replaced with tile. All done on weekends and after work!

  • Wow, what a transformation! The subway tile looks great, and the removal of those cabinets really opens up the space. Great job, we know your wife loves it!
