Best Kitchen Redo: A Welcome Craigslist Break

We moved into the house in the fall, and there was only one problem: Our new 36-inch range was defective, which meant I had a beautiful new kitchen but was cooking on a hot plate. Wary about the reliability of a replacement, I spent the next few weeks scouring Craigslist and found a beautiful Fisher & Paykel for just $800. I immediately contacted the lister and told him our story. But when it came time for our pickup, the terms had changed—in our favor. He wanted to give it to us! We couldn't believe our luck. With the arrival of our second son, Silas, only two months away, it was a welcome break.

Range: Fisher & Paykel
Pendant lights: Shades of Light
