We've lived here for 6 years and the kitchen was hideous. It was like you were stuck in a bad Swedish sauna in 1981. The pine timber was, to say the least, overwhelmingly hideous. We kept putting it off because kitchens are so expensive, so I decided that I could wait no longer and damn it, if we couldn't afford a new kitchen, then we were just gonna have to make do with the old one.
10 days later, primer, sealer, undercoat, 2 coats of acrylic, 2 coats of enamel, evil aluminim windows, french fricken bastard windows, a gimp shoulder from RSI....and we're finally done.
It's always 12 months between renovations here, and that's why. I always seem to under calculate the sheer monstrosity of the work at hand. If I was a tradie, doing quotes & stuff, I would be broke - that I know for sure.
Anyhow, the renovation was called "let's do the kitchen with a budget of bugger all".
This is the result. Not to everyone's taste I suppose, but I do love a tip scavenge....and I do love my wifey for helping me even though she didn't have to x
