- About my kitchen reveal:
- My kitchen makeover focused on improving the cosmetics and functionality of the kitchen without requiring a complete overhaul (my budget was a tight $3000). When I purchased my condo, the kitchen screamed of stone-age-meets-1990s. I updated the look by ripping out the stone tile floors and installing a plywood plank floor, which I painted white (my favorite mistake since it looks great but requires vigilant and constant cleaning). I removed all the concrete countertops (which were porous, stained, and mucked with bits of food from who knows when) and replaced them with Ikea butcher block that I stained and sealed with Waterlox. I also painted the existing cabinetry, replaced the cabinetry hardware, added a subway tile backsplash, and painted the entire kitchen a bright white. I absolutely love the modern country-meets-city look of my new kitchen!
