One Room Challenge, Week 2

IT.IS.GONE!

Hi Friends!

I am attempting to put a dent into the To Do List for the Dining Room and while I never thought I would be doing actual DEMO for this project, this is where we find ourselves. I looooove demo but not when you are hosting two parties in a few weeks and need to use the room! I had the best intentions to just do some painting and new decor for this Challenge, but I could no longer tolerate the pony wall we inherited between the kitchen and the dining room. And you know how it goes…one things leads to another…

The offending 1/2 wall was always a fun picture spot (my mom with the girls at Christmas)…

And of course the header needed to be taken out as well in order to open it up even more! The unpleasant surprise was that beacoup electrical was hidden in the ceiling channel and because the kitchen was an addition done many moons ago before we bought the house, the ceiling heights were off. In sum, we could not take the whole header out. BUMMER.

So, a plan is forming with help from Pinterest to add molding on the surround. Oh, and this happened because I suppose we were on a roll..

I am so ready to finish the demo and the get rid of the dust!
