We moved into our new home and started with the kitchen renovation asap. I did all the work myself, from working out a cutting list for the built in cupboards to painting the cabinet doors and finally putting everything together. The butchers block and the wooden tops were made by a family member from the Free-State. We decided on darker colours as the our previous kitchen was light. My wife and I thrive on doing DIY projects in our home and we love making the space our own by adding elements that we both love. I am happy to say that we agree on almost everything and we make a great team. We have spent most weekends and evenings to complete this kitchen and it took us about 2 months and a lot of hard work. Today we enjoy this space of our home so much!
