Part of the fun of a new house, for me at least, is decorating it. I've been trying to hold back and not go too crazy, as the goal as of late is to be saving money, but once in a while something catches my eye I sort of have to have. This rug, for example I got on sale for $100. Done. Then I stumbled upon this Etsy store, and I want one of everything. We have high ceilings in our house (happy dance) so I'm having the overwhelming desire to hang things from every corner, and these seem like a pretty great option.

As much as I hate to rip off artists, I miiiiiight try to do a little DIY hack on the bottom right one. We'll see how that goes...

I couldn't bring myself to call this a before and after, because it's more before and step 1. Turns out taking down 1/4 of a wall takes like 4x the amount of time one would think. I honestly thought we would be painting by 2:00 (ha!), and we had just got the cabinets out by then. Also, guess what makes the world's largest mess? Drywall. Turns out that shit gets everywhere. I would recommend covering any and everything with plastic, not just the stove. Don't worry, we moved the bar, no alcohol was harmed in this process.

ANYWAY, I'm very pleased with the results thus far, just look how open it is! Now we just need to patch that hole, wrap the column in wood (fake beam anyone? whoohoo!) and paint. Oh ya and tile, get a hood, new countertops and build + install shelves. Turns out redoing your kitchen is a lot of work, but we saw that coming. Well, not be to be honest, I live in a dream world where renovations happen in 24 hours, but I'm trying to reel that in.
