We've got a hole in the wall! After demoing out the cabinets on our own, we hired a pro to take down the wall separating our dining and kitchen. We likely could have done it, but when dealing with major items of the home that basically make it stand up, I tend to defer to the pros. Call me nuts.
Looking from the kitchen into the dining room! Yay! It's Christmas central there in the DR, what with the wrapping and packing. Pardon our dust!
I need to paint both sides of the new pass through and the flooring is a real issue. For now, a rug's going to cover the hole. Totally amateur, I know. But until we rip out the kitchen flooring, there's no good temporary solution.
Thanks to the great blog Russet Street Reno, I found our new kitchen faucet. Yeah, installing it is probably like a YEAR away but at least I'm saving big $$ now. I told Jake that we'd be assembling a kitchen in our basement over the next year 'cos I'm buying stuff if I find a screaming deal.
$85 bucks, no shipping or tax--whatta deal. I can't believe how expensive plumbing stuff is!
I'm hoping it looks awesome with the polished nickel pulls I want to use from Martha Stewart's line at Home Depot. I used these on my bath vanity and they are pretty and very classic.
