What challenge have you overcome in your kitchen? I added a lower height 2'x2.5' workspace (I'm short). It has a butcher block top and shelving and drawers below. The cabinets are standard pieces that are actually meant to be used for a kitchen office.

Give Cheryl a THUMBS UP if you think this kitchen belongs in the finals!

What's the story of your kitchen?
My kitchen was built in the 80's in a rental building. I bought the home and lived in it for 5 years before working with a designer to transform the kitchen from cheap and old white box to the open plan kitchen of my dreams.

What is your favorite meal to cook here?
Weekday dinners. I love to be in my kitchen all evening, cooking and enjoying a meal with my boyfriend after a day at work.
