LAST TRAIN TO CRAZY TOWN....ALLLLLL ABOOOOARD! Toot toot. Okay, so you knoooow how I saaaaid the project might happen in a while. You knooooow, the kitchen project? Welllllllll. You were all so motivating. And I have a history of "wildhairedness disease". My husband still loves me...isn't he great.
Yesterday I was thinking about my $50 entryway remodel...do you remember? The room that is adjacent to that entry is this little hallway. Should be an easy remodel too, right? Maybe I'll start there and work toward the kitchen (the next adjacent space).
This is the view from the backdoor. See that dropped ceiling in that tiny hallway?
This is it close up.
Does your kitchen have three exits? Ours does....we're all about safety folks. ;-) The door on the left goes to the backdoor, the door in the middle goes up the back stairs and the door on the right goes to the dining room. Now you have the layout.
Well......yesterday I thought I'd peak at what was up above the hallway drop ceiling. I started with this little hole.
Then....I made the hole a little bigger and used my highly superior investigative tool (my camera)....and pushed it through the hole to take a photo....THIS IS WHAT I FOUND!!! Can't tell what that is? A perfect plastered ceiling above the drop. WOOHOO!!!
The next AWESOME discovery was that the frosting finish on the walls was OVER THE TOP OF 73 LAYERS OF WALLPAPER. That might sound like bad news to the rest of the sane world, but that means it peels right off.....it's not plastered on my pristine plaster walls.
When I say 73 layers I'm not kidding folks.....I seriously just gained us a half an inch of livable space in our home. Did you know wallpapering was usually part of the spring cleaning plan of gals in the era my home was built? They put up a new layer over the old every year.
LOOK AT THAT CEILING!!!! Down comes the rest this week. Updates to follow...if I don't drown in blown in insulation (dirty filthy blown in insulation) But it's worth it....my kitchen is going to be beautiful!!!!
The big dumpster is on it's way.
