More Demo In the Kitchen

I left you last week with the flooring getting ripped out of the kitchen & sunroom area. Now that the island is gone & the flooring is gone there was another big thing that needed to be taken out before we started on the cabinet area. It was the bulkhead that was built down from the ceiling above our kitchen island that housed the recessed lights. It was a great idea with the former island, but I really wanted to open the space up more & it really blocked the view of all the angles of the large room & we want the sunroom & kitchen to feel like one space. Ever since we moved into this farmhouse 7 months ago I have wondered what was under that bulkhead & this weekend we figured it out..

The island & bulkhead before…

After the island was removed…


& with the bulkhead removed…


Oh my goodness… it’s so open now, but oh my goodness it’s so brown! I’m so excited to start the pretty work, but we have a lot of the ugly work ahead of us. I was so curious to look up into the ceiling after we removed all of the drywall and framework…


& it was quite uneventful to say the least. I was hoping that the planked ceiling ran under the bulkhead, but since we discovered the hole in the ceiling I’ve come up with a plan to still make this part of the ceiling a point of interest, but still keep it cohesive to the planks. We will also be hanging lights from this area as well which I’ve had since this past summer. Can’t wait to show you! This week I’m going to be working on removing the upper cabinets, more bulkheads above the window, & cleaning the lower cabinets & ceiling to get them ready for paint. I CAN’T WAIT for the paint. A lot of you have asked if we are getting an island in the kitchen & the answer is YES! We are actually having one custom made by Jessica & Co. Vintage which I can’t wait to show you when it’s done. This kitchen will probably be my favorite room in our home which is going to be amazing because right now it’s my least favorite.  The demo in the kitchen just keeps going & it’s all one step closer. Go [HERE] to see a little quick list of some more projects coming up in this space very soon. Thank you guys so much for stopping by the blog today & be sure to follow me on Instagram & Facebook for more behind the scenes. xx
