Our Wall Project

When we first built our home, we built a wall between the kitchen and the living room, because we felt that we needed a place for a fireplace one day. 


After a while when the built-in fireplace didn't happen, we wanted to open up these two rooms and we removed the wall.
     
After we removed the wall, we found out that the flooring
was discontinued, and the hole in the floor sat for 4 years.
We did save the left over flooring but, it wasn't enough. About
a 1/3 of the flooring would needed to be removed to keep the pattern.

  I really wanted to keep the open look and this is what we came up with.  


We put the wall back and added a large glass window with grids.  The lower wall is nickle-gap ship lap. It cost more than we first thought it would, but it was cheaper than replacing the entire flooring.

It allowed the two rooms to be open while adding character to our home and it allows nature lighting into each room.  We love how it turned out!!

  I can't wait to get new cabinets in the kitchen and windows across the entire back wall. I am not sure when it will happen, but it is on the list to change!



  

This single-pane glass was custom-made and so was the wood grids that are removable . I will not be removing them to clean because of how fragile they are.


 It wasn't an easy project to do, because of handling the large glass. So, thankful the project is finished.


Let me know what you think!

A Paint Project


This desk in the laundry room, needed a fresh look.



It is a desk that I use to study on, 
or escape to when I want to water-paint,
 and I even use it as a sewing table. When school
is in, it becomes my teacher's desk.

When I need an extra table to work on in the kitchen, it becomes my island.


A few days a ago, I painted it with different paints colors layering as I go.
It turned out so cute. It brightens any room that it is used in.

It reminds me of the ocean...


What do you think?

The reveal


BEFORE:


AFTER


I had just recently took the photo's over the couch of our girls.
I ordered the canvasses from Canvas on Demand.
I found the pillows at T.J.MAXX and Target, a few months ago.   

I am still planning to add white shiplap behind the couch.


The living room is still a work in progress, with a few more touches here and there.
The wall straight across from the couch, I want to add an real fire place one day.


Thank you for touring my living room.

Have a wonderful kind of day.
Smile at your family, and show them how much you love them .
