Just bought a house with an extremely out dated

DWQA QuestionsJust bought a house with an extremely out dated

Just bought a house with an extremely out dated kitchen, we are planning a massive remodel in the future, but I couldn’t live with it until then so I did a quick super budget update.
Total budget was $20 for white paint and marble contact paper and took about 3 hours, what do you think?

Edit- the brick is a weird plastic veneer that had a ton of stains and a few cracks in the plastic that I had to patch.

As long as you like it that’s what’s important. We all have different likes 👍

How well does contact paper hold up on counters ? We have a “busy” kitchen with four kids and two adults. How do you keep it from peeling due to water spills or hot/cold things being placed on it

That’s quite a difference for $20! I like the white brick better than how it was before. The white really opened it up and looks cleaner. Well done!

I love it! The painted brick gives a subway tile vibe. I would have done everything exactly the way you did it. May I ask how it was working with the contact paper?

How far in the future..maybe you can paint heirloom paint for the wood?

Looks good. I like the futuristic tv in the corner.

Where’d you get the contact paper?

I think we may have similar taste because I like the white brick so much better and I love the countertop with the contact paper. Can’t believe you achieved that with such a low budget! That’s amazing!

This is an amazing job especially for the $20!! Can you tell us what you purchased/provide links?

I love it. So save $20.00 more dollars and do your cabinets in a nice gray.

I have that contact paper too!!! I love it. My counters were pea green. Question….. how do you like that corner sink? I’ve never seen that.

Awesome there is also a product that will resurface counters self leveling and adds a nice durable finish i forget what its called its a 2 ingredient mix and i used it succesfully in a rental paint and then finish with it!
