Kitchen Renovation

My mum has her birthday on the 25th of February and I wanted to give her a gift that she could really enjoy. I decided to renovate the kitchen for her. :cake:

Inspired by renovating my bedroom, I thought that giving the kitchen a fresh new look would be a really great present (mum thinks so too). Our kitchen was looking a bit sad and sorry with; linoleum removed from the floor and bare cork style flooring, dark cupboards and slightly orange walls, it was really screaming for a redo.

Here is what I have done so far:

  • Light sanded the cork flooring
  • Painted the cork flooring (in a nice charcoal colour)
  • Applied a thick coat of gloss to the cork flooring
  • Sanded 90% of the kitchen cupboards

What’s up next:

  • Finish sanding the kitchen cupboards
  • Paint cupboards (white)
  • Paint walls (white)
  • Paint random ‘country’ tiles (white)

I am not going to lie, it is quite a large job to do, but at the same time I am only making ‘surface’ changes and not pulling out cupboards and replacing them. When I renovated my bedroom it gave me more confidence in using power tools, so picking up the sander again wasn’t that big of an issue. I am really looking forward to finishing this project, and although I won’t have it finished by her birthday, I don’t think that matters too much.

I plan to share some pictures when it’s finished. ou3uo
