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.
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!
