Local Real Estate Comments and Ramblings


My low buck kitchen make overs

Ugly kitchen?

See what you can do for a few hundred or a few thousand dollars. Watch my video as i show you 2 kitchens that I did.

One was my own kitchen for my home here in Country Walk subdivision, Powder Springs, Ga. We did new countertops, new appliances, refinished the cabinets, and did new cabinet hardware for $3500. $2300 of that was the appliances.

The other one was just a light make over with a new stove for about $600. The stove was about $450 at a local scratch and dent store.

Take a look!

You did an amazing job! Loved the video concept and your ideas are outstanding - looks like a video series for you! Have you done baths yet? :)

Great video!  I love the idea of using ceiling tiles for the back splash - Beautiful!

Bob, great video and remakes.  Do you show this video at your listing presentations?  We have so many listings in our area that could use just what you accomplished but the sellers just won't spend the money or the time.  Thus NO SALE.

Nice job.  I just recently saw a kitchen that used the same material for the backsplash and it was beautiful i person!

Thanks for all the great comments.  Making the video was much easier than the work on the kitchen :-)

Jo: I did the bathrooms on my old house but nothing to exciting and I don't have pics.

Kristina: Our original idea was to use ceiling tiles.  Then we found the product that I showed in the video.  It is an actual backsplash tile available at Home Depot or Lowes.

Ginger: I just finished the video.  thaks for the idea of using it in alisting.  I hadn't thought of it. It would also work in buyer presentations if they think they might want a fixer upper.

Doug: Thanks.  AS you can see I was happy with the way it all turned out.

Kim: I'm glad you liked it.  The back splash material was actually pretty easy to install.  I tmade a huge difference in the end results.

Looks pretty good.  Sometimes simple ideas are the best if they are put into action properly.

It looks awesome, Bob.  I too liked the video and loved the backsplash.  It was a creative solution that really made the kitchen pop!
