Interior designer and host, Alison Victoria, takes over for a Craigslist-loving, DIY couple that needs some expert help brightening their kitchen and opening up the space to both their dining and living rooms. The new design knocks out cabinets previously hanging over the bar area, widens the archway into the living room and substitutes an old cooktop with a new range and microwave. Alison replaces painted black cabinetry with a white shaker door look and trades chipping concrete countertops for gray quartz ones. The couple gets their first-ever backsplash, a natural marble mesh mount with green tones throughout. To finish off the look, Alison designs a DIY light fixture incorporating mason jars, wire, Edison light bulbs and a cut-and-sanded barrel to light up their dining space.
