Change . . .

After years of being sick of them, I finally had a handyman tear down two walls in my house.

Yes, that might seem a little foolhardy. But these two walls taunted me. The previous owners of my home had decided they wanted a larger kitchen, so they built two walls into the living room, an L-shaped extension. They hung cabinets on these three-quarter calls that didn’t go all the way to the ceiling, plugged lights into tops of them – and voila, bigger kitchen/big chunk of living room missing.

So I had the walls removed.  Now light floods what has become one big great room! Except, the rest of the kitchen is sitting there taunting me. So, now I have to move the kitchen.

Into the breakfast nook.

So I’m doing two things:  1) Watching all my favorite shows on HGTV to decide what I want to do with the Great Room. And 2) Watching all my favorite shows on HGTV to decide what to do with the kitchen.

“Property Brothers!” Where are you when I need you! Well, I actually only need one Property Brother, Jonathan Scott. I don’t want to buy a house, so I don’t need Drew.

Actually, I would love for Candice Olson from “Divine Design” to come and transform the place. But she is based in Toronto. I’m not moving the house. And she’s doing two TV shows, so I can’t imagine that she’d drop everything just for my small project.

So somewhere between Divine and Doable lies my own plan for my own home. I’m working on it.

Yes, I know. You’d love to see before and after photos.

But I can’t do that until their is an after. So stay tuned for details on The Case of the Missing Walls.
