We are slowly making progress in our kitchen. We tore down the rest of the upper cabinets this past weekend. Here's a little tip for you, don't start gutting your kitchen when you have friends coming for dinner. Just don't.
Fantastic, right? Yes that is a hole in my kitchen wall. Why do you ask? Hard to believe I used to be the girl that couldn't stand for people to come to her house unless it was perfectly clean and orderly. I'm pretty sure I've killed that girl off.

Here's a little insight into my personality, when I start a job, I don't want to stop until it's finished. Umm. Yeah. That's not working out so well for me right now. Now I'm forced to wait it out and stare at inspiring pictures of rooms that actually are finished. We still need to rip down the rest of the lovely tile backsplash. Three of the corks fell out in the process of removing cabinets. I'll be honest, I cried. Oh wait, those were tears of joy.

You know how projects tend to have a snowball effect? If you live in an old house, you really know what I'm talking about. Well, now we've decided to rip the ceiling out and hope to raise it a bit and replace it with tongue and groove wood planks. Sure we could drywall, but dry wall is predictable. And what I mean by predictable is, drywall is reserved for people that have money to pay someone to drywall. We are on the budget DIY road to our newish, updatedish kitchen.

And so it begins.
