    I might have missed it ..but how much did the project end up costing you. We are thinking of remodeling our kitchen too, but it’s hard to get a sense of overall price…would love to hear how much it ended up being. Thanks!

    Hi where did you get your island bench from, was it IKEA also? I love this kitchen.. Do you have a pantry cupboard??

    This kitchen looks amazing. I was curious what you’re using to clean the cabinets with? I’ve tried the recommended method and is seems to give them a slight sheen?

      Thank you! We just use a dry microfiber rag for the most part. If there are greasy spots we wipe it down with a wet microfiber rag and then wipe it dry.

    New to your blog, but LOVE your kitchen! I know you said you did it all yourselves — even the sheetrock?! Did y’all know how to do that already? I’m hoping my husband and I can buy a bit of a fixer upper next year, but taking things down to the studs on our own is SUPER intimidating. (Although I know you obviously have a clear background in woodworking, I just didn’t know how far those skills helped as far as more basic home construction, if that makes sense.)

    • Danica says:

      Oh thank you! Yep, we did all the work ourselves including the sheetrock. Drywall, taping, and mudding is one of those jobs that’s less about skill and more about perfectionism in my opinion! It’s not as hard as it looks but it takes a lot of patience. Chris also worked once summer for a construction company so he has a little experience in that department but youtube has saved our butt when we don’t know how to do something! You can do it! It’s less intimidating when you take it one room at a time! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Are you guys on YouTube? I would love to see a video tour!

    • Danica says:

      Weโ€™re not on YouTube at the moment but weโ€™ll probably do a video tour on our Instagram page @refineddesignco! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    This looks amazing! We have a small pantry closet and weโ€™re looking to do the same thing by taking out the door and installing floor to ceiling cabinets. I love it! Did you guys do that on your own or hire that out?

    Also where are the letters from for your wall letter board? They are so sweet!

    • Danica says:

      Youโ€™re going to love floor to ceiling cabinets! We just ordered a tall cabinet and installed it all ourselves!
      We also made the letter wall art ourselves so unfortunately Iโ€™m not much help there!

    Where are the counter stools from? I love them!

    • Danica says:

      We got them from Ikea! If you search for "Copy Our Kitchen" you’ll find a blog post where I posted a direct link for those stools! Hope that helps! ๐Ÿ™‚
