Craigslist Kitchen Cabinets

So if you’re like me, when purchasing a home there is always one thing you wanted to immediately to change. (This probably came from watching too much HGTV… at least Greg likes to think so) However for us it was the kitchen. Kitchen’s are a big project, but as overly ambitious first time home buyers we were excited and ready. And lucky for us the original 1950’s kitchen had already been updated with new kitchenaid gallery stainless steel appliances <;2 years ago [thank you previous home owners]. Although now after living in it, it just screams the need for more functionality, casual entertaining space, and a complete remodel!

While we’re always interested in saving money by DIY, we still really wanted to add value to our home that we could take to the bank in the future. Has anyone seen the cheap, poorly done DIY/Flipped homes? You know the ones that immediately scream I did this myself to save money or I watched a lot of Flipped and think that makes me a pro with the jagged cuts and unfinished rooms. Or maybe you’re like us and have watched a ton of the HGTV shows that have a $50,000 remodel and sell their house for $100,000 more. What a Deal, Right? However I hate to break it to you but those shows are filmed in Toronto, Canada eh?and depending on where you are in the US this recouped cost typically never matches those figures.
