L&G started the year with a big bang.....through our wall between our kitchen & living room on New Year's Day!!
We decided that this year we're gonna actually devote some time/effort/$$ for our house that's been a little neglected....
But also we just got tired of the middle wall that divided our living room & kitchen, which made our kitchen feel too closed off since the living room & kitchen is where both of us hang out majority of the time.
So as the first step, we decided to tear some stuff out to start the project.... and also release all the stress built up from 2010!!
Here's what it looked like BEFORE looking from the living room.
TA-DA...we went through the wall!
But here's what it looks like AFTER!
I know!...NOT that impressive looking at all!
Just to warn you, there's gonna be a whole lot of BEFORE/AFTER photos of stuff like this where the 'after' photos are just gonna look worse than before since it's probably just gonna be things getting torn up more and more....but hopefully that will change where the 'after' photos will get better as we get to do more exciting things.
But at least now you can see the whole kitchen from the living room!
The best part is that there's tons of light coming from the living room now, which is totally great!
I'm totally stoked about it even with just this raw-open wall. :D
Now we need to go figure out what to do with that weird half-beam....yikes...
