Ikea Kitchen Makeover

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.
