Drywall Happiness

GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT

is my un-official motto for our Dutch colonial re-do.

Speaking of good things, check this out:

That’s right.  There’s your G.O. + your drywall (!!) in our kitchen.

On that wall we’ll have a refrigerator flanked by 2 pantries;

behind it is the bedroom closet,

+ just to the right of G.O. is the door** to our powder room.

**I’m still planning to use something like this:

Back to the exciting drywall photo ops.

Here’s another view into our kitchen,

taken from the adjacent dining room.

The sink + stove counter will fit underneath the windows to the left,

+ our island will be at the approximate same locale as that trash can.

In an effort to assist you in visualizing our finished room,

here’s a photo of my inspiration kitchen:

black + white dream kitchen

I’m loving just about everything here,

+ I’m basing a lot of my design choices on it.

But back to the in-progress squalor that we presently have:

At this point, I suspect G.O. was weary of his snapshot being included,

+ of course, his devoted companion, Dory, was going wherever he went.

All that insulation will soon be stuffed

 between the joists of our kitchen + bedroom ceilings.

The large windows at left

are in the large, west-facing bay in our dining room.

Here’s a photo of said-same taken from the yard.

You can see just a glimpse of the kitchen windows to the their left:

These window bays (there’s also 1 in the living room)

are pretty much the reasons why I wanted to buy our house!

But I digress.

Back to the kitchen windows:

As you can see, the wiring is in place for light fixtures above our sink.

Because of this sort of awesomeness . . .

lighting -- over sink!!!! 2

Sorry — source unknown

. . . I decided we’ll have some sort of wall sconces above our sink windows, too.

What are your thoughts?

At this moment (always subject to change, of course),

here’s my choice:

lighting -- kitchen over sink gilded iron

Home Depot

I’m pretty sure this is an exterior light, but it’s all good.

It comes in 2 sizes, so I was going to order 1 of each

for a side-by-side size comparison.

Meanwhile, here’s another look-see at my inspiration kitchen:

Thanks, as always, for viewing,

+ stay tuned!
