I have had kitchen cabinets in my office for the last several months just waiting to be installed and the time has finally come! The reason I have had cabinets in there for so long was because they were on sale. Whenever we know we are about ready to do another stage of the kitchen we will look for the cabinets while they are on sell and store them either in garage or my office until we are ready. We may only save 25% by doing it this way but that quickly can add up when doing a whole kitchen. This was the final stage in replacing our kitchen cabinets. Over the last 5 years we have removed a wall, added cabinets, replaced a window, added a pantry, moved a refrigerator, replaced the upper cabinets, and now we are replacing the bottom section. We were very worried about damaging the counter top since it was glued and screwed down to the old cabinets. With a little patience and the right tools we were able to remove the countertop without any damage. Since we were reusing the countertop and sink we skipped the step to remove the sink. Once the countertop was removed we quickly took out the old cabinets and removed the remaining backsplash. At this point Jack was a pro on installing cabinets and they were in place in no time. Once they were tacked into place we carefully put back the countertop and sink and secured it in place. Because we planned ahead we had this project completed in only a weekend, now we are ready for the new backsplash!
