Designing a kitchen for myself is not easy, I am a bad client!
I started this process with the desire for new cabinets. My old cabinets are 30 years old and very tired looking. The hinges do not match the hardware, and there are at least 6 coats of peeling paint on them. I intended to keep my granite, but found that the process of removing it and then putting it back after the cabinets went in was not cost affective (it was $2,000 more to put on new counter tops). As with all construction, one action leads to another. When the counter tops are removed they cannot save the backsplash. Do you see how things are adding up? Oh, and they cannot remove the sink from the granite to install on the on the new counters…really come on!
The project is adding up quickly. Well, it is too late now so I guess I better just enjoy the ride.
Here are the final choices…
The top cabinet will have glass doors and the interior of these cabinets will be painted blue
The new counters are going to be honed Marble.
The stove wall (below) and backsplash are going to be nickel gap boards

The hardware that goes with my scheme (functional-vintage) best is this…
On Thursday my existing granite was removed, then all we had to do was demo the cabinets. This is what our kitchen looks like now.
NOW…doesn’t it look great?
I looked into the most cost-effective way to dispose of the cabinets, 1-800-got-junk does not give you estimates before they come, they said it would be $445 to dispose of the cabinets.
I sent them away that is just too much, so I broke down the cabinets and put them in this Bagster it was only $149.
