Kitchen Progress

  We knew when we bought our home that the kitchen was in need of an update.
The house was built in 2000, and the kitchen hadn't been updated since. 
Luckily, the counters are nice white Corian and the cabinets are in
great condition, but the ivy wallpaper had to go along with the 
strange cut-outs into the living area. 

As you can see, ugly wallpaper and strange cut-outs

We got to work on the demo to take this wall down and make a breakfast bar.

We also spent HOURS removing the 1990's wallpaper

Here is the wall down, waiting for the electrician to come move wires

 We had to install a column to hide those wires that were once in the wall,
I think it will frame out the breakfast bar nicely once the countertop is installed

And here is the view looking in to the kitchen, where the breakfast bar will be.

This is the before of the kitchen

And here is the after.
Wallpaper is gone, bead board is painted, and kitchen is updated!

I am currently painting the rest of the cabinets the same color 
as the bead board (Cloud Nine by Benjamin Moore) 
and we will then tile the backsplash, add cabinet hardware, 
add the breakfast bar, and enjoy our updated kitchen!
