One Room Challenge ... Kitchen Reveal

It is the most exciting day of the day ... the One Room Challenge reveal!  I feel like a six year old that woke up before dawn on Christmas morning! #butterfliesfordays.  I have been counting down to this day from day one of the challenge but I may, or may not have missed two days sleep with all the excitement building!

I will not dull these beautiful pictures with the sad "befores", those can be found here.  And to warn you there are a lot of photos, but I love photos and you need to see each piece of this room.  I still can't believe this is my completed kitchen.  #kidinacandystore.

Without further ado, aka my boring chit chat, our brand new Kitchen and Breakfast room ...

Let's pause one second and talk about that amazing dragon.  I have vowed to have art from The Pink Pagoda in each of my One Room Challenges.  It is a tradition for me.  This piece goes way above anything I have ever received from her.  She designed this piece just for me ... and her precious daughter Virginia drew the amazing, drop dead gorgeous dragon.  Isn't he just beyond all words?  Virginia, I love him so much.  Thank you for making your mother's vision for the art in my kitchen come true.  You are one talented girl!  You can shop this piece and the rest of Jennifer's art here ...

Linda. thank you for believing in me and providing me the opportunity to step up from Linking Participant to Invited Designer.  I am beyond humbled by your faith in me and your friendship. Thank you for the encouraging texts, the long phone calls and the support when the bottom fell out. You are an incredibly kind and dedicated woman and you have birthed a phenomenon!  

This kitchen is the one I have dreamed of since we moved into this house 13 years ago!  The six week challenge is just that, a challenge, but I am thrilled to have said yes to be able to stand in our completed rooms and deep breathe.  I am so excited and still in shock that this room gets crossed off the list.
