My take on this project was installing those new LED lights in the ceiling, new outlets, flooring ,painting the wall and installing the back splash tiles on the wall. I had the pleasure to work with the best Craftsman I've known so far. Learned so much from my father in law
This will be my last #kitchen update post. Why❓Because it’s ✅ complete ‼️
After getting married, we lived in Cerritos then in 2009 bought a newly built townhouse in Azusa. We moved to Rancho Cucamonga in 2013. Our #ranchocucamonga cookie-cut house was built in 1988; 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. We even had to fight for it with multiple buyers at the time. The only thing updated was the floor (tile made in Spain with tan and gray tones) with original gold fixtures /hardware throughout. Renters didn’t take the best care of it either. To us, the kitchen was the ugliest room in the house with wallpaper even IN the cabinets and outlets & absolutely no counter space. 🤦🏻♀️ The cabinets didn’t have any backing either. A year after moving in, we had all the windows replaced with double pane. We did minor improvements to the kitchen on our own, even buying used appliances from a neighbor when they were upgrading their kitchen. •
Finally 5 years later, we said we were all in and really needed to do something. So in August, our kitchen was demolished‼️
Only a couple minor surprises like finding a hot water slab leak prior to starting and no tiles under the original cabinets but really no drama like on those shows on HGTV lol...
It all wouldn’t have started without the help and advice from our friends Shaun & Katie Bayliss. I’ve had so many direct messages asking who we used. Well Katie is a lawyer and real estate agent @katiebrealty (even has her own makeup line which I use @katiebcosmetics ) and Shaun comes from a family of contractors and did a majority of the work. They have flipped houses for 10+ years. They should have their own show 😆 •
They will always be part of our kitchen..... cause their photo is in it too. 🤣 (the day we all rode the train at Tom’s Farms) #kitchenremodel#kitchenrenovation#marble#backsplash#quartz#quartzcountetops#homedecor
