We pulled up the carpet and were pleasantly surprised that there was tile underneath. The formica countertop color didn't match, but we ran the risk of breaking the tile if we tried to remove it. We had a contractor fabricate a "poly-stone" top that wraps around and over the old top and added a 6-inch backsplash. We removed the cabinet over the sink, replaced the corroded faucet, and painted the walls, trim, and cabinets a nice clean white.
Who did the work: I did some of the work myself
Cost: $500 to $1000
