    During a recent conversation with Megan Pflug — special projects editor of One Kings Lane — I casually said, “It would be fun to do an easy but stylish before-and-after,” and I piped up, “Do my kitchen if you want a challenge!” Half-joking really. But Megan was already grabbing her measuring tape and camera and inquiring about when she could drop by to “assess” the situation.


    The situation, like many a New York City kitchen, was grim. The space was tiny (three feet by six feet) and dark (no windows), with about two square-feet of counter space (seriously) and the usual rental materials (dingy linoleum, cheap cabinetry, and neglected walls that had been painted over at least 10 times).
