Sacramento's Katrina Sullivan, also known as "Mrs. Chic" of Chic Little House, does kitchen demolition with her husband as they start a major makeover in "Honey, there go the counters":
"We have big plans for our tiny kitchen, on a tiny budget! As with most of our DIY projects we've done over the years, we plan on DIYing most of it, and getting help from the professionals along the way. Here's my quick rundown of our plan: We are replacing our outdated tile counters with solid-surface counters, new stainless-steel sink, updating the backsplash with subway tile, adding hardware and installing a vent hood. Currently, we have an outdated ceiling vent; think old-school ceiling vent. Not cute; freaking odd. We also plan on installing a pantry cabinet. Also new lighting, and paint lots of paint. Oh, and new appliances, one at a time. Now back to D-E-M-O."
