Drywall, thou art not my friend

On the heels of this project:

Drywall, thou art mine enemy.

Or frenemy, because I like new drywall.

Bathroom medicine cabinet? GONE!

Door molding? Bedroom wall? BAM!

Our walls are shakin’ in their boots around these parts.
Happy Saturday!!

Boom! That Closet is Outta Here!

I showed you guys my amazing, technicolor kitchen last week.

It’s been primed white (good bye weird mustard walls!) and the cabinet doors have been all taken down and the cabinet bases and trim painted (Valspar, Swiss Coffee).

My technicolor kitchen had a catch. When it came to the refrigerator space we were less than impressed. The house didn’t come with a refrigerator, but the spot was pretty gnome-sized.

After looking at the refrigerators (by which we had limitations on the height, width and depth!) we started to think outside the box.

We had a coat closet in the hallway that backed up against the kitchen wall. Now that we have everything looking prim and like you might think about eating in here…

We decided to bash a huge whole into the wall!

No more coat closet!

It’s work in progress, but sometimes you have to think outside the box.


Our new fridge just arrive! I can’t wait to plug it in and have some homemade ice cream. (Remember my summer bucket list!? I am quite behind!)

So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good night

We’ve been saying goodbye to a lot of things ’round these parts lately.

Goodbye wallpaper!

Goodbye wall!

Goodbye cement blocks!

Goodbye pseudo-western, fake hammered iron hardware everywhere in my house!

Goodbye 1970’s built in bench!

And y’all don’t come back again! Ya hear?
