This project was so stretched out that I lost track of the amount along the way, but I think we redid our entire kitchen for under $1,000.
I ordered all the hardware from Ebay. It took a little time wading through all the *unique* items, but was well worth it. I got exactly what I wanted for about half the price.
We ordered our countertops through Mississippi Cabinet Company and we could not have been more pleased. We looked several other places but they were way less and it was the exact same counter top at Lowe's. I would have loved real granite, but it just wasn't in the budget right now. Not to mention all the baking I do. One food color spill and that beautiful granite would have been ruined.
Now for the backsplash, Dad picked up some fab subway tile for us at Dirt Cheap. I love love loved it. I am all about a subway tile and the aqua color was perfect for our house!
Overall I am thrilled with the results!
