Farmhouse Update: Kitchen Ceiling Before and After Photos, and a Lovely Kitchen Window!

Some big news in the kitchen…the ceiling is done and the window is in, YES!

Here’s what the ceiling did look like:

The kitchen ceiling had been papered over and all that had to scraped off and the hundreds of nails pulled out, then the burned wood had to be sanded away. THEN the caulking and painting could start!

And here’s what it looks like now:

The tongue and groove kitchen ceiling, caulked, primed (twice) and painted (twice) and oh so pretty!!

Big difference, eh? And here’s what I looked like after sanding off the soot from the fire damage of years gone by:

Not only is the ceiling done, but the window is in, woohoo!!! In a matter of weeks (I hope I hope I hope!!!) there will be a kitchen sink in front of that lovely window. 🙂 Thank you, Bob, for making the window a priority!!

Oh, the lovely kitchen window is in, oh, I love it!
