Things Are Looking Up

Remember when I first shared this inspiration photo? (see our kitchen inspiration images here)

There is much to love about this kitchen from Southern Living, but the one detail that really sealed the deal for me was that spectacular ceiling. I have been obsessing over bead-board ceilings for a long time now,  so when we started our kitchen renovation (too long ago) I just knew I had to have one. I'll give you all the deets on how we accomplished it in another post, but for now here is the reason all of my guests go home with a kink in their necks. It is the first thing people remark on when they walk into our home. We are so happy with how it turned out - we might even someday forget the pain it caused us to install (but more on that later!)

Here is the before. This is after we moved two walls in the kitchen to open the kitchen up to the dining room. You can see all the holes in the ceiling from where the old walls stood as well as holes from the old lights that were removed when the new can lights went in.
