Proudest DIY

“When we moved into our house back in 2013, the kitchen needed a face-lift. It was actually one of the main reasons we bought the place—there was a blank slate just waiting for our personal touch. Seven years later (yes, it took us that long to finally take the plunge) we ripped down the upper cabinets and started our DIY kitchen makeover in January 2020. Other than installing the countertops and adding an outlet, my husband and I tackled the entire project ourselves. In 6 months, we updated every surface in the kitchen, and we couldn’t be more proud of how it turned out.”
