Demo day is so exciting. It makes the whole process seem very real, very fast! Forget what you see on some of the DYI shows.. Don’t use that sledgehammer on your cabinets or counters. While it looks fun, and can be, it seems a waste. Often you can pull the old cabinets and counter tops out and save them. They work great in the garage for extra storage. You can sell them on Craigslist, or put an ad in the local paper. Habitat for Humanity will take them, your local good will or thrift store is a great place to ask as well.
