Step 1: Demolition of the "old" Concrete-kitchen

this was in fact very easy we ask an demolitian company that took away professionaly the "old" concrete kitchen and left us a new blank space for our new creation

Step 2: Getting Started

So because my friend invested already a lot of time and money in his first concrete-kitchen it had to be done under 800 €, so the plan was to use again the furniture and all of the domestic appliances.

Good for him I had left from an other project some Oakplanks that we could use for the base and we went at the local timber merchant to get us some Spruceplanks.

the next things on the list was a mdf plank what we bought on the internet, some wood stain,wood putty, some iron bars and screws

Step 3: Cutting an Screwing the Base and Re-building the Kitchencabinet

So we cutted the oakplanks into 8 pieces of 150cm long an cutted 2 slots with the hand circular saw to fit in the iron bar an screw them together.

After rebuilding the kitchen base cabinets, we could screw all the cabinets together and screw on the oakplanks

Step 4: Cutting the Top

Next step, we took the Spruceplanks and cutted them on a length of 300 cm.

After cutting was done we tested the dimensions.

Mesuring was done and same as the oakwood we cutted some slots for the bars to fit and with the router and jigsaw we cutted the hole for the sink, hob and extractor hood

Step 5: Screwing, Putting and Sanding

So all the wood back on the kitchen, then everything was screwed together and the screwholes were filled with wood putty.

we waited two weeks so the wood could take room temperature, then we sanded the hole thing

Step 6: Staining and Installing Electrics and Co

We took some oakstain, and repeated the step 3 times, to gett a really rustic look

Step 7: Finish

The last steps we mounted the mdf panel and installed all the electrics and cabinet doors and drawers.

everything fis and runs perfectly... so project DONE

... and i added this time a little personal stamp :)

the hole project took 3 days and was easy step by step

    Simply a good improvement done in this kitchen, Patrick. You know what they say, "if you want, you can always get it done!".
