Well, it isn’t exactly tearing down an entire wall but actually part of one. After my Hallway Makeover, it is next on my list of “to-do” projects.
Here you can see the wall dividing our family room and Kitchen.
To the left are the doors leading to the backyard. We get a lot of afternoon sun through these french doors.
The Whitewashed Brick Fireplace is directly opposite.
I don’t want to remove the entire wall because I like division between the rooms. I am thinking of removing approximately 3 feet to the left of the opening (towards the green sign). It will open up the space while preserving the division of rooms. I actually think that removing it won’t be difficult but the trim and where the floors meet will present a challenge.
I also need to complete Painting My Kitchen Cabinets. As you may recall, I already painted the bottom in General Finishes Millstone. They were kind enough to send me a quart of Antique White for the top cabinets and I need to get that project started.
Painting the top cabinets in a brighter white and opening up the wall into our sunny family room will really brighten up our kitchen. Bonus: I also may be able to see the Nats games on the TV while I’m cooking dinner 🙂
It really never ends!
