How to Remodel Your Kitchen on a Budget | Two Tone Cabinets | Dream Kitchen Remodel

Learn how I transformed an outdated and ugly kitchen into a trendy modern paradise for under $4500!

Day 1: Demo Day!
We ripped out the countertops, all the tile backsplash and the sink.

Day 2: We laid out the plywood which will support the new Chop Bloc countertops.

Day 3: If you’ve ever thought about tackling a tile project yourself, you should! It’s not terribly difficult and it’s very rewarding. So save yourself some money and Do-It-Yourself! Home Depot even has free classes and there a million and one tutorials online that can help guide you. You will need a tile saw or a grinder like the one I used in this video. I went with white subway tiles for a clean modern look. They were also inexpensive.

Day 4: Painting the cabinets!
I decided after a lot of thinking that I didn’t want Ikea cabinets. My cabinets were in good shape and I like the idea of knowing my kitchen is totally unique and not like every other remodeled kitchen out there. So I opted to sand, prime and repaint my cabinets. Prepping for painting takes a lot longer than actually painting. Apply two light coats and make sure to wear a mask or respirator!

Day 5: Countertops!
My ABSOLUTE favorite day! We finished installing the Chop Bloc mahogany countertops and they’re so smooth and perfect. I couldn’t believe how rich the colors were after I applied the mineral oil. It was amazing!

Disclaimer: I received a discount from Chop Bloc in exchange for producing one of three videos. I really love and highly recommend their butcher block products.

    Hi Caitlin, I enjoyed the Reno video but cannot find the company Chop Bloc anywhere online. I wanted to know if you know of another vendor that sells quality mahogany countertops as well? Thanks for the video!

  25. Deets Muny on July 10, 2020 at 6:28 pm

  35. Kth Mrr on July 10, 2020 at 6:40 pm

    Wood counter tops are so outdated. Waste of time doing this 5 day work for 1980’s look

  36. PapaBear TX on July 10, 2020 at 6:40 pm

    Is that Maggie from the walking the dead

  37. DeeCaine on July 10, 2020 at 6:40 pm

    Beautiful indeed but sadly your budget is MASSIVELY bigger then most!

  38. Joyce Kao on July 10, 2020 at 6:43 pm

    Hi, I’m curious when you open the dishwasher door, will it hit the gas stove? I have the same design in my kitchen, every time I need to open my dishwasher, I need to open my gas stove’s door and that upsets me:(( wondering if I can shorten the gas pipe behind my gas range and push it back a bit more, now I’m stuck with the situation.

  39. Erika Warren on July 10, 2020 at 6:43 pm

    Looks much better

  40. Jenna Salgado on July 10, 2020 at 6:43 pm

    Wow great job!!! My husband wants to copy your kitchen now

  41. Lauren Baney on July 10, 2020 at 6:44 pm

    We’re in the process of buying our first home and this is the EXACT carbon copy of what I want. The two toned gray and white cabinets, the butcher block counter tops. The subway tile. I’ve put a Pinterest board together but seeing someone else do it and have it look this awesome just let’s me know I’m on the right track.

  42. Janette Lavender on July 10, 2020 at 6:45 pm

    Awesome! 👍🏻

  43. Barbara Hendricks on July 10, 2020 at 6:46 pm

    Great job! I think I have a girl crush on you!

  44. KKvlogs on July 10, 2020 at 6:46 pm

    Excuse me, but which part of 4500 dollars is a budget option, cause I feel like I missed something.

  45. mister clean on July 10, 2020 at 6:53 pm

    How did that cost 4500$ to DIY ;~;

  46. Marjorie Lloyd on July 10, 2020 at 6:54 pm

    Love the new kitchen, but what about new flooring?

  47. Tostada Jones on July 10, 2020 at 6:55 pm

  48. Mitchell Nunn on July 10, 2020 at 6:56 pm

    Was wondering what color did you paint the bottom cabinets with?

  49. Life Goes North Alaskan Homestead on July 10, 2020 at 6:56 pm

    Oh my gosh it looks so great! Thanks for taking the time to share!

  50. Beki Brookes on July 10, 2020 at 6:58 pm
