Everything I Learned From My Crazy (But Worth It) Kitchen Renovation

By Mandi Johnson

Every morning, I turn the light-filled corner into my kitchen, and I almost can't believe my eyes. The past two months, we've burned the midnight oil and spent seemingly every spare moment in our lives working on our kitchen transformation. I've almost forgotten what it looked like, so these before-and-after shots are a little shocking. I've always enjoyed spending time in the kitchen, but these days, I'm practically kidnapping friends just to come hang with me while I cook for them. I think I need a larger refrigerator for all of the feasts I want to prepare for all of the dinner parties we need to host.
