If you’ve already checked out the March 2010 issue or viewed our Online TV episode this week, you'll have seen Lisa Chiang and Randy Woo's new Ikea kitchen. The full story and makeover photos are on page 84 of our March issue, on newsstands now. They were the winners of the Ikea Kitchen Makeover Contest — finalists from more than 1,200 entries! I took a few photos during the entire four-week building process — including all of the construction and messy stuff. These “in progress” shots aren’t as pretty as the finished product, but they do show what’s really required to end up with a great space.
The “before” shot.
The fridge wall, after the demo!
The sink wall, after the demo! A small bulkhead went in over the new pantry.
Cabinet installation — so much cardboard!
Island, in place, and some doors up. Just waiting for the countertops, appliances and backsplash!
A few finishing touches (like a sink faucet or two).
And the final reveal!
