Mike and Jess love to cook and entertain, but have been held back by their archaic kitchen that practically functions the same as a dorm room kitchen. Alison sets out to change things up by taking out a major wall to open up the space and moving the sink underneath the back window to create a galley kitchen. While this kitchen is in need of just about everything brand new, one original feature is uncovered and preserved when Alison and the crew find gorgeous original flooring underneath layers and layers of linoleum. To update the look, Alison brings in gray cabinetry and adds lighting just about everywhere she can, from under cabinet lighting to in-cabinet lighting to lighting inside each drawer, Mike and Jess have the right lighting for cooking, dining, and entertaining. To add some DIY touches Alison and the homeowners make a dining table with the legs wrapped in jute, a window treatment to block the neighbors and easy-to-make wall vases using wine bottles.
