Now you see it, Now you don't

Well I finally did it! I took down the wall between the kitchen and living room. Those that know me know that that wall has been bothering me for years. The people that we bought the house from put the wall up and took 3 feet from the living room and covered up the end of the rock wall. So lame!. That made the living room so skinny. So I finally did it. I'm not finished yet but already I love it! It opens up everything so much so now we can all be together in the same room when we have a gathering. And I can be working in the kitchen and see and talk to anyone who is in the living room.
The before pictures are kind of blurry. My Parkinson's must have been really acting up that day or else I was just excited to get going. So I've included some old pictures that I found that had the old wall and kitchen bar in them. I started out very neatly cutting out pieces of drywall and putting them in the dumpster but then Logan came over and that was the end of that!!! He had a ball smashing and bashing and in the end we ended up with a huge mess but that was okay because he was such a big help and had such a good time. We filled both dumpsters and the trailer.

THIS IS THE OLD








THIS IS THE NEW
