Default Replacing Toshiba Satellite A505 keyboard

I have a Toshiba Satellite A505 Laptop and I was doing college finals last night and spilled my Mike's Hard Lemonade onto the right half of my keyboard. Now, the number pad, right shift/enter key, and directional arrow keys are very sticky. I tried popping off the right shift key, and ended up busting a piece of plastic and now the shift key doesnt lock completely in place. it stays in but wobbles. I need to purchase a whole new keyboard. How expensive, and how easy is it to install a new laptop keyboard. Is it something I can do without taking it to a shop? Is it worth repairing?

i ordered that keyboard, and I already watched the video. I never realized how easy it is to replace the keyboard...much easier than replacing keys.
