Cabinets from Lowes
Handles and knobs (oh, yeah..not a neglible cost)

WOO HOO! I finally won something . . . . you like me, you REALLY REALLY like me! (cries like a schoolgirl)

Seriously, it was a total guess, but I know how much these things normally cost because I have done so much of my own renovations.

However, for those on a tight budget (me) who are really just making the kitchen look nice to sell the house (me again) here is what my wife and I did.

We stripped the varnish off the old cabinets and painted them white, got new hardware (chrome) on sale (clearance), sanded and painted the countertops and sealed them, got a new stainless sink (cheap), and put peel-n-stick vinyle tile down (again, on clearance).

Did my own electrical and hung our own drywall.

Our cost for what LOOKS like a brand new kitchen? About $250 - woot!
