Having just aced our first pass at laying tile, we wanted to move onto the backsplash but needed a new countertop in place first. We spent roughly around $2,000 on new counters. I needed a material that didn’t require much, if any, maintenance and in a color that lightened the room.
Since our pantries were an uncommon size, we had no choice but to invest in custom doors. We found a great local store in our area that was able to accommodate our needs and for a very reasonable price. We paid about $575 per door. And, we were more than happy to support a small business in our town. We chose tiles that were on a mesh backing, making it easier to install the sheets than single tile, one at a time. Playing up the white and grey colors in the countertops, we chose a Grecian white interlocking tile, again keeping everything neutral but not sterile looking
Next, came the demo work on the pantries. We removed old molding and shelving, patched up and sanded the plaster walls, and gave everything a fresh coat of paint. My husband had the great idea to use unfinished steps as shelves because they would never bow and they already had a bullnose edge which meant less sanding for him.
