Do you have the Worst Kitchen of America? Um, probably not, because mine is worse than most.  Seriously – I actually have a green sink with patched up holes.  It holds water, so we’re not too bad I guess.   Anyway, if you think yours is in the running, you can enter to try and win a new Kitchen.

DIY Network, the go-to destination for home improvement television, and Food Network Magazine, the No. 1 selling epicurean title on the newsstand, are teaming up for the second year to uncover kitchens in desperate need of a redo. Beginning June 28, food lovers can upload an image or video to and explain why their kitchen is cramping their style. The homeowner selected as having the “Worst Kitchen in America” will receive a full kitchen makeover courtesy of DIY Network and Food Network Magazine.
