When I spotted Mandi Johnson's gorgeous and no doubt laborious kitchen makeover, I found so much to love. Not only did she successfully convert a dark and dated kitchen into a bright and welcoming space, but she did so while still re-using many of the original components. From her built-in oven and stove top to her adorable mug collection and clever utensil rack, we are in eye-candy heaven. This amazingly talented woman even cut her own countertops!
