Current Obsessions: Kitchen Confidential
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
This past week we introduced Remodelista: A Manual for the Considered Home , based on the concept of a step-by-step recipe book (everything you need to know to make it through a remodel). This coming week, we'll be riffing on the theme, covering subtle changes you can make the kitchen: new outlet covers, a quick lighting or hardware switch-out, a new coat of paint.
