When Academy and Emmy Award-winner Patricia Arquette called on Drew and Jonathan to help someone very close to her heart, of course, they were more than happy to help! So on this week’s Patricia Arquette Celebrity IOU episode, we watched as the actress gave her loved one the ultimate surprise. Patricia’s late mother had a very close friend, Liz, who had always been a cherished person in their lives. She was there from the beginning, saw Patricia’s mom go through her cancer, and has also acted as Patricia’s daughter’s stand-in abuela after Patricia’s mother passed. So now, she’s showing Liz just how much she appreciates all the love she’s given throughout the years.

Liz is nearly 80 years old, and though she’s still independent as ever, she does have less mobility than she used to. Because of that, her kitchen setup just wasn’t working for her. Cabinets were falling off the hinges, the countertops were far too high for her, there was unsafe electrical work done, and the room was overall not cohesive with Liz’s lifestyle.

As a lover of gardening, cooking, and hosting, Liz needed a new kitchen and dining area to accommodate and embrace her interests. So Patricia, Drew, and Jonathan got to work creating it for her.

Lower Counters, Better Fixtures

Because of Liz’s more limited mobility and height, her old countertops were difficult to navigate. They were too tall for her, and it hindered Liz’s ability to prep, cook, and clean comfortably.

The Bros lowered the countertops to a comfortable height for Liz, replaced the outdated tile with striking white quartz, updated the hardware, and then added a pop of color to the new cabinetry. They also installed a new dishwasher for Liz in the empty spot where she was missing one.

A Cooktop Upgrade

The new quartz countertops along the stove run all the way up to the backsplash, making for a super chic cooking area, adorned with two matching gold double-light sconces.

Because she loves to cook, Drew and Jonathan even installed two pull-out spice racks for easy reach while prepping her favorite meals, as well as a pot filler next to the stove. The final look is cleaner, more sophisticated, and better fit for Liz’s style.

Organized Laundry Storage

The old laundry room was totally jumbled and rather uncomfortable for Liz to navigate. Even Drew and Jonathan had to reach up to get to those top shelves! There was also illegal electrical work that they had to fix, and less-than-sensible organization.

The Bros and Patricia decided to make use of closed storage with pull-down cabinet shelving to keep Liz’s laundry tools easy to reach, as well as a front-load washer and dryer and custom pull-outs for her laundry baskets.

Indoor Grow Garden and Comfy Seating

Liz absolutely loves to garden and care for her plants and flowers. So adding a chic indoor garden for her greenery right in the windowsill only made sense! Not only did the mini garden brighten up the space, but it also added a fabulous pop of color that Liz loves so much.

A better seating layout also made for an easier dining experience, where Liz could enjoy meals with a friend. Switching out the lighting and updating the window treatments made the space lighter, brighter, and more open.
