So the kitchen reno begins...kinda

Hi! Thanks so much for dropping in. A certain someone took it a bit literally yesterday, hence the hole in our kitchen ceiling.
We unofficially began ripping the kitchen out when Sean's goggles were blinded by flying insulation and he took a mis-step off the beams and through the dry wall. Thankfully he is A-OK, and while Wren and I weren't here at the time (thank the lord he wasn't injured and alone!!!) we have been sweeping and vaccuuming insulation dust non-stop. Well almost... we have also been doing our fall wardrobe shopping and some sewing, which I will probably share this week as well~
And so the renos continue... and the plot thickens... and all the jazz. Just give me a beautiful closet already!
We have also been making some minor adjustments to the laundry room.
You might recall that this lovely sideboard was making herself useful in there:
But she has gone on to bigger and better things as a client's dining room buffet so we decided to opt for some seating this time around.

They kind of remind me of Goldie-locks and the three bears. We each have a chair that is juuuuust right!

But Sean preferred the extra "counter space" so when I finally get back to some of my larger pieces (currently buried beneath and behind client projects) I might move a dresser or buffet back again.

But for today I think they really are juuuuust right.

LOL, my hubs stepped through the kitchen ceiling too, only for some reason he did it on purpose and thought it would be strong enough, LOL. MEN!! Can't wait to see your new closet!! And I love the chairs, you need a place to take off your shoes!

Sorry about the ceiling, but your new closet will be totally worth it. Can't wait to see how it turns out. Those are pretty chairs. Love & blessings from NC!

My kitchen ceiling looks the same way right now for the very same reason. I wanted to redo the recessed lighting in the kitchen, so the hole in the ceiling is helping move that project along. I am seriously considering putting beadboard up on my kitchen ceiling as well.

Glad your husband is ok! Can't wait to see what you do with your kitchen - I am a kitchen designer and love to see what others do! I love the paint color in your laundry room!

Shannon @ What's Up Whimsy said...

I love the look of the three chairs! I vote for keeping them there!

Little Lovables said...

poor sean! I guess he just really wants the skylight in there and is trying to give you a big hint!

my grandpa did that as well, but he didn't fall all the way through, just his legs.

Glad he's ok. My hubby went through the ceiling a few years ago too! It happened just a couple weeks after we'd moved into rental. I felt so bad. Luckily, he was trying to solve a leak during a snow storm so he had good motives.

He is soooo fortunate he did not hurt himself! I have a daughter with a head injury and he is so lucky he did not hit his head!

The big guy was looking out for him because he could have been so injured!!!

WOW.

christine said...

oh my gosh! Straight through the ceiling!? I'm glad he's okay and you can laugh about it now.

I'm lovin' the Goldilocks chairs too!

Abby & Her Boys said...

I think I have said this every day since I found your blog, but I just LOVE it! I'm glad everyone is O.K., and those chairs are just darling.

lauren @ gathering moss said...

Courtney said...
