Recently I've been completing some renos on an 80's home getting it ready for sale. I've given the kitchen and bathroom a makeover, installed a new trough and splashback in laundry, installed new blockout roller blinds throughout, installed a new toilet cistern and seat, and have received help from family to do the less skilled/technical jobs (I mea that in a nice, practical sense) such as painting, gardening, changing door handles, etc.
With $10k to do cover the cost of everything necessary at the house, knew I had to be smart with the money and couldn't have done it if we had to hire trades. I only paid for the installation of the blinds and installation of the hard wired smoke alarm.
Removed the benchtop, sink, tiled splashback and rollerblind + pelmet.
Overall I'm very happy with the improvement to the kitchen. I would've liked to have installed laminate flooring and upgraded the stove/oven but the good ol' budget decided otherwise.
Fantastic work @ProjectPete. Many thanks for sharing. Great to see what can be achieved on a relatively modest budget. I'm sure that @2Belindas would agree that your investment will pay dividends given how important a modern kitchen is to most buyers.
Looking forward to seeing what you are working on next.
We look forward to reading about your projects and plans. Please post whenever you need a hand or have something to share. We have lots of helpful members like Pete sharing inspiration, experience and knowledge.
Welcome to Workshop,
Thanks veyr much @begbiebella - had a lot of fun doing it!
Thanks @Ang_flange! The project panels are very easy-to-use/work with. You just nee dot be mindful of their wear and tear over time being timber. Whilst they can dent/scratch, you have the benefit of being able to sand it back and stain/varnish it again to give it a fresh look
The laminate paint comes up a treat. Bit of a process with prep, drying times, etc but worth it and can certainly save some $$$. Get a quote to replace the cabintery and weigh it up.
Thanks again for sharing this @ProjectPete. It’s generating a lot of interest today on Instagram.
Thank YOU for the sharing opportunity @Jason! Maybe one day I'll have more Insta follwers than #wifey haha
