Kitchen makeover - I went dark

 

BeforeBefore

AfterAfter

Repainted old solid wood cupboards, replaced benchtops and taps, and retiled.

Cupboards...Dulux Renovation Range- colour Ticking

Benchtops....26mm Acacia Solid Oiled Hardwood

Taps.... Shaw & Mason ceramic disk

Tiles... 600x300 porcelain

 

The benchtops are on the thin side but as there is no sink cutout, they should be ok.

They are a bit soft though and if they start looking ratty I'll tile over them with a timber look tile.

 

Cut  tile in half and inlayed into bench either side of stove for Hot Pot Spots™😉

Had the diy bug, so also made a spice rack using an 18mm merbau utilty panel.

Re: I went dark.

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @Former Workshop member.

 

It's great to have you join us and many thanks for sharing your project. What a fantastic transformation that has made to the overall feel of the kitchen, you should be extremely happy with your work. Did you complete this all by yourself? I like the idea of inlaying the tile into the bench, as I'm forever looking for a place to rest hot pans and trays with none to be found. The spice rack is also a nice finishing touch.

 

We look forward to seeing what other projects you have going on around your home and garden and I trust you'll find loads of inspiration for them from within the community. Please let us know if you ever need assistance with a project or have something to share with us.

Re: I went dark.

That looks way better. That blue really makes the bench stand out more.

 

I love the pot stands as well. Brilliant idea.

My hairy friend popped in occasionally to check on things and

spread the dust around for me.

Made a paper towel holder that dipenses in 4/4 time. 🎼

Used 18mm ply and the weight of the hinged lid allows one hand operation.
