Kitchens are the heart of the home…so they say!

I did some research last month to find out how much a traditional rehab on a kitchen is. This is what I discovered:

Demolition: $2,000+
New Appliances: $5,000+
New Flooring Counters and Backsplash: $5,000
New Cabinetry Refacing:$7,500+
Custom Cabinetry:$15,000+

That makes the average kitchen renovation over $30,000 (and up from there with so many different variables).

There is definitely a time and a place for a complete renovation. BUT,  the majority of us can’t just throw down or even finance $30,000 for a total overhaul. Which is where cabinet painting comes in!

For under $500, you can get all of the supplies needed PLUS take a private paint lesson to learn how to refinish your own cabinets!

How long does a kitchen job usually take? That depends on each person, but I would say most people can tackle their kitchen in a weeks time…about 40 hours labor.

With our focus on kitchens this year, we are hosting a promotional workshop plus open demos during the knot too shabby BAZAAR! You can sign up for a spot in our Kitchen Cabinet Workshop for just $25 OR you can swing by during the workshop and watch and learn.

It’s a great chance to get a feel for how the paint and wax will wear in your kitchen and to determine whether tackling this big project is something that you can do!

If you’ve already painted your kitchen with Annie Sloan Paint, we’d love to see your pictures! Share them with us by tagging us on Instagram and Facebook!
