Kitchen and Bath Remodel

My Finance and I bought a older home (1970) in January. It needed some work to say the least. She wanted to get the work done before I could move in, so we were on the clock. The kitchen and baths needed the most work. With a lot of help from my Dad, we gutted both of the bathrooms. After putting up cement board around both the tub and shower, we completely retiled both. The Ryobi tile cutter was flawless. My Fiance loves the new bathrooms. the kitchen need a serious help. We couldn't afford new cabinets so we painted them. The counter top looked 1970 so we put on a special coating to cover it and get it to look like marble. Last came the old vinyl flooring. It had to go. I was considering paying for professional installation when my neighbor convinced me I could do it. We tore it out and put in a new floating hardwood floor. The Ryobi Multi tool took care of the hardest parts. It cut right through the door jams to allow us to slide the new floor underneath. It looks like a pro installed the floor. The entire time we were jamming out to music on our Ryobi radio charger. Thanks Ryobi for making it all possible.

  • Too bad these pictures don't do this project justice. I have seen it in person. It was a total renovation. The Realtor thought it was professionally done. Well done, Mitchell! Why are the pictures upside down on my PC but correct on my phone and on Facebook?
