$6,000 Kitchen Remodel Project Is Amazing

By Todd Fratzel on Home Improvement Cost Savings

The fine folks at This Old House asked me to share quite the kitchen remodeling success story with you. A young couple with children recently remodeled their 1970’s style kitchen into a beautiful new kitchen on a $6,000 budget! They were able to accomplish the amazing kitchen remodel by finding great deals on Craigslist and local shops along with doing most of the work themselves. I know what kitchen remodels cost and I’m amazed at what they accomplished on such a tight budget. One of the great things about Craigslist is not only the great buys you can find but it’s a great way to recycle things and help with the Green movement. When we lived in Boston and renovated our first home I used Craigslist to giveaway the old windows that we replaced. Instead of putting them in a landfill I placed an ad giving them away for free. A local artist actually took them to use as canvas’ for paintings. So check out this great kitchen makeover and also check out Craigslist for buying used stuff.
