Kitchen Remodel: Part 3 (The REVEAL!)

For years, I have been known to tune into the last few minutes of home makeover shows just to catch “the reveal”.  You know, that moment when these amazing people (usually with amazing stories) get to pull off the blindfold and see their new house unveiled for the first time?  And...
