We have now been moved into our our DEBT-FREE fixer upper for about 2 1/2 weeks. In this video I share how we were able to keep renovation costs for this IKEA kitchen low and do a kitchen renovation on a budget. Our house had other factors that impacted our kitchen renovation that were not included in this total, but overall we are happy that we were able to stick to a budget for a great kitchen!
The house is not 100% complete but it has everything we need to be able to live comfortably.
I still have plenty of projects and updates to share such as an IKEA kitchen tour, A BEFORE & AFTER, DIY backsplash video, and a bunch of other ideas...so stay tuned!!!

HEY YOU!!! Did ya know that you support our channel by watching, liking and subscribing! Some links may be affiliate and they do NOT cost you extra! Thank you for supporting F2F!!! Xoxo
Hi there! Thanks for the amazing video and I know I’m late to the party, but doing the same as you and planning before we even close! Excel spreadsheet to prove it! Ha. We are doing an open floor plan with a smaller floor then you, even after taking the wall down and are combining the “dining table” into the island like you’ve done here for a kitchen (with dining) living room layout. I love your island and the additional 15” “hidden” cabinet storage on the back. To replicate this, how did you plan that part? You said you had a fabricator? What was your steps. Size the island with the cabinets and 16 inch overhang, bought the countertop and then had someone install the table ends to (your contractor) to the counter? Any details on who I should be asking? Supplies? Etc would be amazing. Trying to keep to a budget and do this ONCE the right way. Really love your island!! Thanks I’m advance for any little details you have!! Love your vids.
We designed the kitchen and sourced contractors on our own:) The fabricator was for the countertops only. We found ours through a recommendation. He installed the legs for us. We bought them ourselves at home depot. :)
Other kitchen companies love to criticize IKEA cabinets. Currently, I've been quoted $13k for "real wood" cabinets. The kitchen is very small. Just feel like going with IKEA and taking my changes with the so called bad quality 🤷♀️
Me, personally, I feel like whenever I mention prices, there are a lot of people who always say, "Omgz, that is so expensive! I expected those custom cherry mahogany cabinets and custom pantry and newly installed bathroom to be a dollar!, not $100k! omgz!" If it doesn't sound affordable to someone, then they're going to say it's expensive even if it's a custom made kitchen the size of their home.
I worked with a fabricator who only chareged me the wholesale price of the material at a wholesale granite/quartz supplier (MSI stone). It was only $13.99 a sq. ft. He only charged me labor ($28/sq. ft.) and I paid for the quartz under his name/business. Many fabricators hike up the price of the materials:(
Your kitchen looks fabulous! How did you get your labor cost so low? Traemand (IKEA installers) want to charge $3000 to install 11 cabinets and one over the refrigerator cabinet. Also, cabinets from IKEA are going to cost $3598, off white bodbin. That’s with 15% off. Where did you find granite so cheap? Please tell me your secrets for getting a lower price.
I took advantage of the 20% sale that IKEA does 2 times a year. Traemand prices fluctuate by location and they even told me that...ugh. The granite is from a wholesale granite yard (MSI stone) and I found a fabricator who only charged labor and gave me the wholesale price from MSI...most fabricators will upsell you. That stone was only $13.99 a sq. ft. and I talked him down to $28 sq. ft for install. Where are you located?
FLOORSS!!!! I wanted to know that a fresh floor was under my cabinets because they aren't bolted to the ground (except the island) and if I ever wanted to make a change, I knew my flooring was ini tact:) Just a personal decision although many people don't do that....
I was looking at your Subway back-splash video and had to follow it to the finished kitchen.. I have to say, one of the nicest remodels I have seen on YT with complete explanation and breakdown on pricing. Thanks for the Ikea 20% cabinet sale tip also!! Looks Great!!
Hi, this is the first time I leave a comment in any of the many many many video I seen... but I just want to tell you: thank you so much , this is the type of informative video that I like to see... keep up the good work 👍👍👍👍👍
was your floor vinyl, tile or wood? It really flows with the kitchen. I just love white kitchens, you can see a mess or spill right away and can clean it so nothing builds up. It to me is flexible you can decorate with color in those things that can cheaply be changed out for a fresh new look..i.e. canisters, dishes etc.
I chose the grey and think we will love it! I have less cabinetry to purchase with no island(I have a farm table instead) and we are not changing the floor plan or original cabinet set up as it is presently. We are leaving spaces for open shelving since everything we own it seems is white or stainless and minimal also so I don't require but a few sets of cabinetry. God bless.
That looks so beautiful. We did a renovation about 6 years ago and before I had white Cabinetry, and was tired of it. In an alley kitchen. We knocked out the back wall it took me $25,000 for new dark Oak Cabinetry $2,000 for granite countertops and another $20,000 to tear out the back wall and add a den. Now I want to paint them white lol🤔🤗
It would have cost me 10k plus to put in a new kitchen probably so i just reconditoned and fixed up the old 1970's units and built a shelf for the microwave. It was 150 dollars for a new countertop, the new sink was free, under 200 dollars in material, some money on paint and polyurethane, 80 dollars for new door handles. I think i will eventually be replacing the kitchen but this will keep it going for another 5 - 10 years. Plus there is a fireplace in the way and an expensive hot water situation that I'd rather not deal with unless the 40 year old hot water cylinder gives up.
Well the thing is there is this annoying chimney right in the middle of my house and demolishing it would greatly expand the kitchen space. So am actually considering tearing it down along with the new shelving space we put in so then I can move the stove from where it is to where the chimney is now, and put a dishwasher where the stove is. So building that new shelving unit I think is going to be a good temporary measure until ready to take down the chimney which is a huge job. On the plus side will have plentiful chimney bricks I can use to make a pathway out the back. Unfortunately this humungous chimney adds a lot of charm to the outside of the house so I'm sort of torn to be honest.
My kitchen is really basic, there is no dishwasher. All the cabinets were painted wood and had to use paint remover, a sander and paint the doors to make it look decent. My dad also fixed up the broken drawers. He was not that happy he said "why are we fixing up this old junk" Am lucky that hte flooring was in such good condition. On the plus side though the previous owner put in a brand new stove - I think its the law that a kitchen has to come with a stove here. I have now got to replace the old 1970's carpet in three bedrooms and the passage, update the electrics - there are not enough outlets in the place and then put in roof insulation. Apart from that just a lot of painting and cosmetic stuff like silicone etc still needs to be done. I also forgot to mention we used cheap 2 dollar tiles as a backsplash. My dad reckons i need to get professional carpet people to put carpet in and thats not a DIY thing. The thing I'm tackling now is the fireplace - It would cost me 4000$ to put in a new wood burner, but i don't want to have a non functioning fireplace there. Want to take it out because its connected to the old hot water cylinder and do something cosmetic in its place - the box with the candles in it or something. I just wish now i'd replaced hte fireplace instead of putting in a heat pump.
That is awesome! So glad you worked with what you have!!! We did that in our old house:) This will be the LAST time I will ever do one so we went for it:) You should start a youtube channel about this:) xoxo
OH LOL! I went with ALL drawers and the most expensive drawers! LOL!!! I definitely could have done it for way less...I just can't stand doors on the bottom cabinets....LOL! I am a bit of a diva! LOL! So glad you own your home free and clear!! YOU GO GIRLLLLL!!!!!! xoxo
FREE TO FRUGAL
yeah we have 6 in the island I think and we went with the cheapest doors.. There only 6 drawers in my whole kitchen cause the drawers are the most expensive part and I didn't see the point... I kept it to the bare bones basics... Im so cheap then again I didn't want to redo my kitchen in the 1st place a storm caused damage so had no choice.. :) filling 212 inches of space top and bottom with out the island I was like can we made cabinets lol everyone talked me into ikea so went into Ikea like I have a big space and want to spend the least as possible... ur kitchen is beautiful and I wish I had the budget to do that but then again even if I did I think ill have a brake down...I can part with money... I own my house free and clear and everyone keep telling me to update it it will bring the market price up im like yea nope..Im so cheap people can't stand it but I love it... demo is fun :) keep up ur wonderful content I think it very interesting.. love it
My kitchen is HUGE!!! we had a TON of cabinets and that is why it was more expensive. My island alone has 7 full size cabinets. Most kitchens only use a little more than that for their whole kitchen..lol! $2000 is not a lot at all! IKEA stands behind their cabinets but if you hire them for install they guarantee the install not just the product.
The space and light in your kitchen is just stunning, love it! My husband was project manager for our house build, and it's amazing how prices for even nails and knobs varied in different stores. We have oak worktops for our kitchen that are lovely and warm but high maintenance, so I'm really loving your quartz countertop, its fabulous.... enjoy!!!
A stunning kitchen! Thank you for the video. I'm having a "labor only" installer over tomorrow to bid our countertop. I checked out MS Industies on your recommendation. They were great. I'm planning on being disappointed at the final cost, but we will see. Kitchen and a 42 inch bathroom vanity will be about 68 square feet all together. I'll let you know what happens!
I can't remember. Did you do a video on back splash installation tips? I'm interested on how you planned and did that part of your renovation.
You did a great job and the kitchen is beautiful and functional.
And I hand washed a couple of shirts and a dress that should be dry clean only this evening. it wasnt a bad experience. one of em is a new shirt I got for $10. I really want it to last me many years so I hope this pays off as I continue to do it. xoxo.. See small changes = big impact.
You and your husband made wise choices. The before and after are beyond striking! Because you will be fixing most of your meals at home......why not have a space that is very adequate and pleasing to the eye! Important! Love how you are moved in and I'm so happy to see this transition in your life! Enjoy it.
I love your channel, your videos, your intent, and your genuine nature. I don't typically comment, but I am so gracious that you posted a cost breakdown, I had to do it. So many videos similar to this one do not include cost, and I've been absolutely clueless until now. I share similar values and preferences with you, so this cost breakdown was phenomenally helpful. Thank you so much! :)
OMG!!!! Thank you for commenting!! you made my day! I love that you let me know:) I totally wanted to inspire others...so of course I wanted to include the price...some people tried to talk me out of it...but I am here to help...so why not! You are so sweet! thank you Elizabeth!!! xoxo
We went to the store, made an appointment with a IKEA kitchen planner on a separate day to come to the house, then designed the kitchen at the house and had to go to IKEA to order the pieces to have delivered to our home for installation...so two trips to the store are necessary:) xoxo
Excellent job. All the hard work paid off from the beginning of the end. Having the knowledge was a definite factor in the completion at a low cost. Which is amazing! I am happy for you. Enjoy. Thank you for sharing a wonderful part of your life. Have a amazingly successful day. :)

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
