Ceiling Beam Musings

The closer we get to the finish line of our Dutch colonial,

the more impatient I become!

Take the spot where our kitchen + dining room ceilings meet.

Please.

Will the dining room ceiling be blue like the kitchen’s? you ask?

I think so — since the rooms flow together the way they do.

Maybe something a few shades lighter — we’ll see.

If you look closely, the new kitchen ceiling is about 1/2″ higher

than the old one of the dining room.

Our plans include adding a box beam there.

Something like this:

I want to get some reclaimed lumber to make our beam.

That’s really going to ramp up the vintage charm of our kitchen!

It needs it — everything’s too new!

 The brown of the reclaimed boards

will tie in with the oak kitchen island, don’t you think?

It’s time for me to start searching for reclaimed lumber!

Stay tuned!
