Creating a User Friendly Apartment Kitchen5:28:00 AM
I've written several times about my super talented married daughter Kasey
and her DIY home improvements before.
This is their kitchen. It was a mish-mash of built in cabinets and appliances placed randomly around the room.
They've decided to do most of the work themselves and to rearrange the room to make it more user friendly.
Step one was to remove this extra large built in cabinet which was no easy task! Kasey did most of the demo herself and we won't talk about the electrical mishap!
Those wooden boards that were on the top and on the bottom of the cabinet were actually made of mahogany with about 10 nails on each board.
Each board was extremely heavy and so full of nails that I wasn't even able to salvage them for projects.
Don't you love the triangles painted on the wall? Kasey painted those too.
The wooden floors were very damaged and and so were covered with an inexpensive wood flooring product called Allure that they easily installed in an afternoon.
When the huge cabinet was finally out it was time to start re-arranging the appliances and installing the IKEA cabinets.
Butcher block counter tops were installed on the top of the cabinets and the room was beginning to look like a real kitchen!
Wallpapering the kitchen is her next project and I've already been recruited to help.
Next up: Wallpaper, area rug and Mid Century accessories.
Stay tuned for the final touches on this real DIY kitchen and a look at the whole room!
Now run on over to see the results of this beautiful room!
