Kitchen remodeling is one of those major projects that homeowners
are afraid to tackle themselves, but with a little sweat equity and
help from the local home improvement store, anyone can renovate their
own kitchen. Don’t be intimidated: if I can do it, so can you!
I bought my current house, it hadn’t been updated since 1973. There was
sculpted shag, white and gold linoleum… you get the picture. The
flooring was an easy change. I ripped out carpet and put in Pergo
Select, scraped up linoleum and laid heavy weight vinyl tiles that look
like slate, and hired someone to replace the carpet in the bedroom. But
the kitchen also looked like a blast from the 70s. After some thought
and major design planning, I decided to tackle the renovation myself.
The process was easy and my new kitchen cabinets look fabulous!
