Now that the leak has been found and fixed, the walls have been bleached and dried, and the floor has been pulled out, we can move forward with the repairs of making this space back into a kitchen!
They replaced the drywall that was affected by the leak.
Then, we moved onto lighting! I knew we needed more light! It was always so hard to take good blog pictures of food! Ha! We decided on six can lights dispersed throughout the galley, which will be on a dimmer. They also drywalled where the furrow used to be and took out that ugly fluorescent light! Yay!!
One pendant light will be hung by the kitchen sink window. We are thinking the pendant below from school house electric will be perfect. The pendant will be a natural bronze or polished nickel, and I cannot wait to see it in person! It’s so sleek and that glossy black will be a fun friend to the light above the breakfast nook!
Because of all the cracks in the ceiling and that big office light in the middle, we decided to “float the ceiling”. This required them to scrape off the existing texture, tape, mud, smooth the cracks out, and re-texture to make what we have today!
We didn’t ignore our breakfast nook in the lighting department! We added four smaller can lights in the nook, which will also be on a dimmer switch, and we plan to keep our Eldridge pendant light hung over the farm table (or another table – I haven’t decided). But I’m SO excited to see it all come together, either way!
We also have under-cabinet lighting and a light that illuminates our oven surface! Oh, Progress!
