It looks bad right now... but I've never loved the kitchen more. Having the wall opened up brings in SOOOO much light and I love it! Makes the house feel 10x bigger. I cannot wait until the reno is complete :)
The plumber is coming tomorrow to reroute the stack. Electrician comes next week to upgrade and reroute the electrical, add 5 canned lights in the ceiling, two pendant lights above the island, and new outlets for the fridge/microwave (which will be moving). See the plan for the layout here.
Shortly thereafter, contractor is coming to remove the studs, reframe the wall and redo the ceiling. Then, our friend who owns a wood flooring company is going to rip out the pergo and install hardwoods to match the rest of the house.
THEN, new slide-in range, farmhouse sink, countertops, and beautiful oil-rubbed bronze bridge faucet!
I actually find this wallpaper charming! Makes me sentimental about the history of our house :)
This weekend we are opening up the dining room wall (we just want to widen the entry). Let there be MORE light! :)
Soon it will look like this:
Thanks for being patient with me, I missed you all! xoxo
