One DIY'er decided she was done with her gross kitchen, and somehow managed to pull off an incredible makeover for just $100. This is one project you need to see to believe.
Eliza lived with this nasty kitchen for 2 years, and then suddenly realized that she didn't have to put up with it!
The place was "yellow and stick and sad" and seemed to always be dirty. On top of that, her roommate splattered food everywhere when cooking (but didn't clean up well), so once the roomie moved out, Eliza went nuts making over the kitchen in just two weekends.
For the floor, she didn't want to spend more than $1 per square foot. She looked at tile but ended up going a different route.
She found plank-style adhesive flooring from Lowes' Style Selection line and went with "Woodland Oak."
Next, she laid down the floor. She used an old fashioned rolling pin to roll the tiles down.
She says she didn't have a floor roller and didn't want to rent one and then figure out how to carry it home on the subway.
To clean the floors before sticking down the new tile, she used Simple Green first and then Windex later.
Lastly, she added a few finishing touches. Voila! The incredible $100 makeover!
If you thought this incredible $100 kitchen makeover was great, you may be interested to see how one man turned a nasty countertop into a cool faux-granite countertop for less than $40.
To finish it off, they got a granite composite sink and fancy taps.
The counter top part of the project cost only $34.50, but the sink and taps were expensive. Nice makeover, 2BNamedLater!
