Kitchen Thriller

You and I must make a pact …  Not really.  There’s no need for us to make a pact, nor bring salvation back. I’ve just had I’ll Be There by the Jackson 5 stuck in my head all day, and that’s the first line of the song.  I’m not complaining, it’s a great song! 
 
Funny story about that song:  I was driving around with my mom and sister in downtown Phoenix one day, trying to go visit a friend in the hospital.  I’ll Be There just happened to be playing on the radio.  I was unfamiliar with the area and kept getting turned around and around.  In my growing lostness and frustration, I went to flip a U-turn in the middle of a busy street (downtown Phoenix, you know).  At that very moment, my sister, who was in the backseat quietly singing along to the radio, decided to bellow out at full-force the part where little Michael goes “JUST LOOK OVER YOUR SHOULDER!!!!”  I screamed, swerved into some bushes, almost peed my pants and nearly killed us all.  So, just an FYI, sing that song with caution in the car.
 
That story doesn’t have much to do with this amazing kitchen redo from Annie.  Sorry.  Wait, here we go:  If you think that this old kitchen really needed to Beat It, You Are Not Alone. Now it’s a  Pretty Young Thing.  Thanks Annie!  (are you ok? are you ok? are you ok Annie?)    Sorry again.  Seriously stopping with the MJ lyrics now.  By the way, this kitchen remodel was done in 3 days for around $500.  You Rock My World!  Ok, stopping for real.

  1. What did they do to the countertop? I love the way they look and obviously for that amount of money, they did not replace them. We’re looking for a great-looking, but inexpensive, way to do something with our countertops.

  15. Hey to all who wanted a link about the countertops… this is me, Annie.. and yes im OK ;)I dont have a diy blog yet since we moved into our house only weeks ago. We started this kitchen re-do seriously the minute we got the keys. If only you could have seen it in all its before glory.. it was g-heeet-ooo! For the countertops we just sanded and cleaned them real well, added 2 coats of super dark brown paint and used 3 coats of high-gloss high-traffic polyurithane… waited 3 days and they have held up great! not a scratch in sight and easy to clean and preeetty! :)$50 total

  16. Super funny story and now I’m signing MJ tunes. Awesome $500 makeover!
