Kitchen Remodel Cost Breakdown

If you haven't read about it yet, our Kitchen Remodel was done for around $700 this last winter. Because we don't know how long we will be in this home, we didn't want it to cost a fortune. When I scored this Tile at a garage sale last summer for $250, I knew this would be our starting point. So to answer some of your questions, here is a cost detail for the Kitchen Remodel:

Paint/Primer: $55
Hardware:    $110
Wood Trim: $105
Faucet:        $178
Shelving:      $50
Tile:             $250

Beadboard: $20
Chandeliers: FREE

TOTAL:     $768

I have had a lot of questions as to where and what I purchased, so here's that breakdown:

Paint/Primer: Primer was Adhesive Primer by Sherwin Williams b/c we had laminate cabinets. The paint on the cabinets is Sherwin Williams Creamy in semi-gloss. The hinges were painted in a brushed nickel to math the hardware and the chandeliers were painted in a satin black.

Hardware: Knobs purchased on ebay for .99/ea with free shipping. Cup pulls by House of Antique Hardware.

Trim: We purchased 4" crown molding and lathe to trim out the cabinet drawers and doors.
The island trim we had leftover from another project.

Faucet: Purchased on Ebay

Shelving: Purchased shelving and corbels at Home Depot.

Tile: Garage Sale Find

Beadboard: Home Depot

Chandeliers: FREE - a Craigslist find

So there you go...all the details. Let me know if you still have any questions.


  1. It just turned out wonderful for such a great price! I am currently working on a foreclosure rehab kitchen for my niece and she has no money! Paint, paint and more paint is the only way to go!

  2. It turned out beautiful and way to go on the total cost!

  3. This is beautiful. I have been looking everywhere for pictures of kitchens with white appliances and "soft-white" cabinets to see how it would look. I want to paint my kitchen but know I can't spend $ on new appliances! Looks fine in the pictures! Do you like it "in real life"?

  4. LouAnn-I love it in real life. At first I thought it would be too much, but I have had nothing but compliments on it and not once, has someone told me they don't like my appliance. Some have actually said it made them look a little better because they do blend in now and not stand out so much. And if we ever do switch to stainless, they'll look great, too. Good luck and keep me posted!

  5. I love, love this gorgeous remodel!!!!! Experts I tell you! :} Where did you get your wonderful bar stools? I love them. Hope you enjoy all the hard work you did!

    Happy New Year,
