We also desperately needed a wall to back our television on to from the conjoining living room. There was absolutely no way to arrange the living room and combine a television at the same time with the room full of windows and a large half wall.
Our larger fridge also needed a new home.
It was quickly determined that we needed to build the half wall up! Happy day! (And we needed to ditch the “junk/tool corner” in the process.
This is what our living room looked like for a good couple weeks. We came home after working ten hours and paint the walls in our living room, or relocated pipes and built up a wall.
We ripped off the moulding on the tops of the wall.
This is where we needed to put our television since there were no other walls that made sense with our furniture.
This is the wall before we tore it down and relocated the outtake-intake air vent. The vent left a big gaping hole in our newly tiled floor though.
We built up the walls on both sides of the half wall.
Art got to work relocating the vents and building up walls….
They were FIVE DOLLARS a door and TEN DOLLARS for the actual cabinet boxes!
I told you this kitchen remodel was the biggest deal of the year!
It was so exciting and stressful and risky to shop around to piece together our kitchen remodel! But the leg work paid off when we ended up saving so much!
We cant be the only ones who do such crazy things just to save some cash?!! Can we? 😉
I cant wait to show you how we put together our last minute island that ended up being the best kitchen decision yet.
Stay tuned, we are living in an (almost) finished kitchen that I really want to share with you!
