Here's what Elise says about her goal...
My resolution: I love cooking and entertaining but my kitchen is tiny, dark, isolated and full of clutter. We affectionately call it the Darth Vader kitchen. In 2013 I plan to empower my kitchen and make it a joy to cook and entertain. I am a design-impaired engineer and would love help with both DIY and non-DIY ideas for revamping the space - help me turn this into a space to love. :-)
Thanks, Elise! Readers, do you have any advice or suggestions for her?
