THE BIG COVER-UP
Even though the cabinets in the kitchen were old, they were in good shape, so a simple specialty laminate paint job did the trick, along with tile paint for all the old splashback tiles. However, there was nothing that could be done to update the old cooker, so a smart new upright stove that slotted neatly into the space stripped decades off the kitchen. I bought the brand-new cooker from a seconds store for just $529, delivered straight to the door.
