DJ, drop the beat! And by beat, I mean the show notes for Episode #24 of kokokara Has A Podcast. This week we’re chatting with our friends from the blog Chris Loves Julia, who have renovated three kitchens in three years – and they’ve even redone a kitchen in under 6 days (!!!). So yeah, they have a ton of experience, advice, and hilarious stories to help anyone else out there who’s contemplating a kitchen remodel of their own. We’re also talking about John’s shed organizing progress, diving into some helpful decluttering revelations, and digging around to see what paint colors are statistically shown to help sellers get top dollar (they’re not what you think!).
