So I bought it. Its ours! Here is the plan: Live here till my son enters middle school, flip the place and sell it for more then what I paid. Then use that money for our first house. The process has begun and WOW the transformations have been amazing. Its going to be hard to move, its pretty awesome here now.
We are living in a older building, when renting everything was outdated. EVERYTHING. So I just started and one room and moved around.
Today's post, is centered in our small condo kitchen.
I renovated EVERYTHING, myself. BOOM.
Huge savings if you DIY.
This room is going to be broken down to several DIY blog posts, as there is just way to much info!!
Lets start with Cabinet Re-Surfacing
Goodness, this was the FIRST thing in the entire home that I needed to change first. 1970's fake wood cabinets. I looked up many DIY tutorials on Pinterest on how to re-paint them myself.
All the hardware once removed got Spray painted Silver.
Look at those cabinets, isn't that nasty?
Once all cabinet doors are removed, I cleaned them all and removed any build up. Then, I started Priming. The primer I used was AMAZING and is called
"Glidden Aquacrylic Gripper Primer/Sealer"
