Yikes. I could not even handle the faux laminate wood for one single minute, so one of the first things we did was paint the cabinets white and change out the hardware.

Unfortunately, we didn’t have budget to do anything with that interesting fruit backsplash yet, so we left it alone, and this is the kitchen we lived with for about 6 years.

By that time, the paint on the cabinets was chipping, some of the drawers were saggy and broken, and if I had to look at one more piece of fruit on that backsplash, I was going to pull my hair out! 😀

So this summer we ripped out everything and started over. And when I say “we” I mean that mostly Donnie did the grunt work and I just picked out all of the stuff and did some painting. {Which is an equally important and difficult job… 😉 }

After months of planning, demo, drywalling, painting, grouting, measuring, installing, sewing {yes, I even sewed!}, rearranging, and eating lots and lots of microwavable meals, this is what we ended up with was hiring someone.

Why Home Improvements and Repairs Matter

Home repair involves the diagnosis and resolution of problems in a home, and is related to home maintenance to avoid such problems. Many types of repairs are "do it yourself" (DIY) projects, while others may be so complicated, time-consuming or risky as to suggest the assistance of a qualified handyman, property manager, contractor/builder, or other professionals.

Repair is not necessarily the same as home improvement, although many improvements can result from repairs or maintenance.

Often the costs of larger repairs will justify the alternative of investment in full-scale improvements. It may make just as much sense to upgrade a home system (with an improved one) as to repair it or incur ever-more-frequent and expensive maintenance for an inefficient, obsolete or dying system.

For a DIY project, it is also useful to establish limits on how much time and money you're willing to invest before deciding a repair (or list of repairs) is overwhelming and discouraging, and less likely to ever be completed.

Woohoo! So much better! I now get a big silly grin on my face every time I walk in the kitchen rather than cringing at the ugliness that was our old kitchen!

When we started making plans for the new space, I knew I wanted it to be light and bright! We went with the new IKEA SEKTION kitchen cabinets with GRIMSLOV door fronts {which are actually slightly off-white}, and we have been thrilled with them so far
