File this under First World Problems. Powerhouse pair DIY Network and Food Network Magazine have teamed up to find the most dilapidated, rundown, poorly-designed kitchen in America, and rescue it from itself with a full-on makeover.
Many of us, depending on the stage of our lives and the state of our paychecks, have lived somewhere with a truly pitiful kitchen. If you have, you know it can be really sad. No counter space on which to chop, no storage and no dishwasher with which to magically take care of the mess: all these things can lead to you wanting to throw in the towel and order takeout. We understand how depressing it can be.
DIY to the rescue! If your kitchen is a hot mess, you have until August 8th to enter to win a complete kitchen makeover, which will be documented for a one-hour DIY Network special called “Worst Kitchen in America,” which will air early next year. The winner will also receive a trip for two to the New York City Wine & Food Festival, which includes a meet and greet with Food Network star Chef Anne Burrell.
Simply upload a photo or video of your kitchen at diynetwork.com for a chance to win. Be warned, competition looks tough already. Of the most recent entries, we're pretty sure this one gets our vote:
