Shattering Glass Ceilings.. Or Wood Ones.

Yup… nothing can hold us back on this renovation. Not even ceilings! You guys this was NOT the plan… not at all. As you saw a few weeks back, while gutting the kitchen we had primed the ceilings because we were going to paint the beadboard ceiling white. Well, that went out the window quickly after we took out the bulkheads. We discovered that when they installed the headboard ceilings they didn’t go beyond the bulkhead, so there was a huge gap in between the ceiling and the edge of the wall. So, we took the beadboard ceiling down & we were left with something that has a lot of potential, but it doesn’t look like much now…

Here the kitchen was a little big ago before taking the bulk heads out…

After the bulkheads out with the ceiling gap….


& now….

Our plan for the ceiling is to clean it up [wires, holes, and other things like that] & to give the ceiling a fresh coat of white paint to really finish it off & make it cohesive to our design. I’m also wanting to add more historic inspired details, but more on that later. I’m honestly so glad we had to take the beadboard ceiling down because can you believe how much visual height this is going to give the room? Don’t get me wrong, now that we took the ceiling down there is a LOT of work to do now, but I know that I will love the finished product so it’s all worth it. As seen in our last post our friend Denny is helping us a lot in this space & for that I’m thankful too! I’m just so excited to see the finished product, because boy is it a mess! Just so you can get a visual idea of what our kitchen ceiling will look like, here is our inspiration we found [HERE]...

I found these images early on in our kitchen reno, but never dreamed that we would have exposed ceilings. Funny how things like that happen. & look it there, the floors look like our front living room floors… I’m feeling so inspired tonight & kind of wishing I could snap my fingers & have a finished kitchen, but I’m also enjoying this fun fixer upper process as well. Thank you guys for stopping by the blog today & seeing what we are up to in our renovations… & thank you for always supporting us even when our life kitchen is a mess! What do you think of our new kitchen ceiling adventure? Be sure to follow me on Facebook, Instagram, & Pinterest for more behind the scenes! xx

    I LOVE this idea! So much so I will probably scrap the wood plank ceiling plans (planks are purchased and just sitting in our LR ready to go up) and go exposed. ;). The planks can go in another room, right? 😉

    Can’t wait to see what it turns out like. Know it’s going to be gorgeous. Love the white beams and the idea of the little detail between. Best of luck
