Living in a home you designed can be a humbling experience. In this DIY kitchen makeover I’m fixing all the mistakes I made when I designed my home in 2007. I’m revisiting the finishes, replacing fixtures + fittings, installing new cabinet fronts and hardware, organizing + decluttering, and even adding a few bespoke pieces we couldn’t afford when we first built our home.
In part 1, follow along as I sketch out my ideas and discuss what worked and what didn’t in the original design.
In part 2, we’ll build + install everything and reveal the final results.
