Kitchen Makeover Complete For Sweepstakes Winner

A lucky East Texan won a sweepstakes from her favorite TV show, and now she has her grand prize: a new kitchen.

Melissa Gillis from Henderson won a room makeover from TLC's "Trading Spaces." She also got a few hours of design help from one of the show's designers, Christi Proctor, of Waco.

Starting Friday, local contractors replaced Gillis' sink and counter tops, and added tiles on the walls. Gillis says she's glad she entered the online sweepstakes and loves her new kitchen.

"I really like it," she said of her kitchen. "And it looks real modern, real clean. And I even have my few country touches around, here and there. But I really like it."

Gillis says she'll take advantage of her good luck and continue entering more sweepstakes.
