What an honor to win this. Being the last entry accepted in the contest just this past Sunday, I could see it was a long shot, but I believed it was possible. This was basically a direct reflection of how I took on our house project! Taking the bull by the horns, making the decisions and choices that need to be made in the present moment and just going for it – a remodeling motto to live by!
I am so impressed with the contestants who did their kitchen remodels on their own. I admire that very much and want to shout out to them and all The Big Reveal kitchen entries for amazing work! It is no easy task to take on a remodeling project no matter how big or small. We all so treasure our homes, where we live, spend time with those we love, eat and nourish ourselves. Being in a state of upheaval, whether moving or having work done on your home, or doing it yourself, is so stressful. It takes a super amount of perseverance and drive to FINISH anything, but it is worth it to stick with it no matter how many deep breaths you need to take!
