Good morning. Hope you are all having a great day so far. Just wanted to share a couple of pics of what is going on here at our house. This was my kitchen this past weekend.
Here is my kitchen as of last night!! I can't believe how quickly it goes from cozy and prim to downright ugly and scary!!!
We are removing the wall that you see to make the room larger and to open it up to the family room. The way we have it now is such that you have to make a little jog around the kitchen table on both sides to get through the room. We are doing away with the table and adding the island. This was kind of a tough decision because I love the old kitchen table. We don't have a dining room so we can't just move it there. We agreed that we would get much more use from an island on a day to day basis. We can always pull the table into the family room if we need to.The wall we are removing is a load bearing wall so we are having a beam put in to take the weight. It was a good thing that we removed the wall because a big beam that runs the other direction and ties into the kitchen is resting on a beam that doesn't look to be in the best of condition. I guess things happen for a reason.
Thankfully we have a large enough house that we have moved all of our stuff into the living room. I call it our "hillbilly kitchen". If anyone comes to the front door, they are going to wonder what the heck is going on!!! I am getting good use out of the hot plate, microwave, and crock pot!! We will see how long the novelty of cooking with these last!!
Well, I'm off to take our daughter to her driver's test. Wish us luck!! Have a wonderful day.
