Here is my finally completed kitchen remodel. The first picture is (obviously?) the new kitchen.

I left the old carcasses up and made new doors and drawer fronts out of maple and MDF. The paint is Sherwin Williams ProClassic Acrylic Alkyd. It sprayed really well with my Wagner Control Spray Max. I just thinned with some water. Poured the concrete countertops in the garage/shop.

Best part about the entire project (4ish months) was that I had a dedicated shop with no cars interfering! Cannot wait until that is an everyday reality.

Counter tops came out really nice. Shame you didn’t make a video on the process you used to make the cement tops. Maybe next time. Otherwise I like the color contrasts and the presentation. Its very pleasing to the eye.

Thanks!

Don, there won’t be a next time! I REALLY wanted to do a video of the concrete process. There are a lot out there, but none of them are complete enough, or detailed enough, if you ask me. Also, very few of them use dyes. I used a charcoal dye the concrete the dark gray color. My wife would have killed me if I started sacrificing time to make a video!

Good job, but even more is the dramatic change in the room.

Thanks, guys!

Tony, I can appreciate unpainted wood as well, but I’m not narrow minded enough to never paint it. Thanks for your input!
