The best fortune cookie I ever cracked into, "Make True the Dreams of Your Youth." This really hit home for me. The dreams of my youth were very different from what I was doing. So I held onto that little slip of paper and kept it under glass on my vanity for years, everytime I looked at it I sighed and daydreamed. Well, it is time to do something about it. Time to make true my childhood dreams- time to create and design, and do what I am good at.

Before and After- Living Room/Kitchen
Before: Living Room with wall to kitchen
After: Opened up wall and built in from the gods (or my husband:)
So kind of an inprovement right? From the moment we first saw our house we both said the wall between the kitchen and living room had to go. We basically moved in and knocked it right away and we think it makes our house! It is lighter, bigger, and so open. We love it.
Before: View out wall window from kitchen
After: Open floor plan!!
Before: Wall between rooms
After: Decorative columns and open plan!
I could write about this room forever. I will give details on our design plan and some tips we learned the good old fashioned & hard way in a future post! We worked really hard on it and it is great to come home and see what we created together!
