It looks so much better! So much brighter & fresh looking! What brand of paint did you use? Was it the Martha Stewart kind or this other brand (I forgot which) that Home Depot sells? A 2 or 3 step process? My mom is debating painting her cabinets or just replacing them; I'm trying to talk her into just painting them.
Countertops were $800 installed, but that included the bevel edge on the countertop, 2 new cabinet doors over the range, on site sink cut-out and the side cabinet panel for the dishwasher. The countertop on the sink side of the kitchen is a small "L" shape and is almost 12 ft long. The other counter top is just over 6 ft long. The countertops also are seamless, so I paid a little more for a 12 ft long vs the standard 8 or 10 ft piece of formica. (the counters are Formica brand)
Sink was $88 and faucet was another $100. I think the new drain kit was $25, plus misc. PVC fittings to install.
New hinges/knobs/pulls were $200ish. (I needed 27 knobs, 6 drawer pulls and 26 sets of hinges) About another $200 for paint & supplies(1 gal of wall paint, 1 gal of trim paint, 5gal of KILZ for priming and painting the ceiling- I always keep KILZ around the house for various painting projects and roller covers, etc.).
If you decide to go with new knobs, etc, look in the stores, even kitchen & bath places and find what you like. Get the brand and collection name. Don't worry about the price for the "designer" knobs. You WILL have sticker shockin the stores! Then, come home and google it. You'll find the knobs/pulls cheaper online, unless you go with "builder choice" knobs, which will be the same price online as in the stores.
it looks so much brighter and happier ...yes i know that sounds weird as a kitchen can not be happy but it looks like it would make me happy to walk in it. great job! we just painted our kitchen (well, we had someone paint it for us lol!) and we will be putting tile down in the next week or two
