One Summer I got a chance to tackle a little bit of everything at once with a residential remodel project. It began on the exterior with trim repair and paint and then moved in to the kitchen. After removing the wallpaper, I applied a decorative texture with a faux finish using paint and glaze. Once I removed the old flooring, the tile work began in the kitchen and front door entry. The laminate countertop was then replaced with granite followed by a new tile back splash and kitchen sink. The installation of the new granite exposed roughly an inch of unstained wood throughout all the base cabinets where an extended lip of the laminate countertop previously had been. Using a combination of stain colors, I color matched some decorative trim and then installed it, covering the exposed gap for a clean finish. An outdated base cabinet panel was also replaced with a new sheet of 1/8 inch finish plywood which I color matched as well. By keeping 107.9’s smooth jazz radio station cranked and the RC Cola flowing I was practically unstoppable… By the time the dust settled it had ended up being an enjoyable remodel, which provided plenty of variety.
