Mountain Cottage Kitchen Reno - Plank Ceiling

Mr. DIY is so patient.
The kitchen walls and ceiling were prepped and primed and ready for paint.
All he had to do was paint the room and then he'd be able to bring in the cabinets we've been wanting to install for soooooo long.
I was spending a little time on Pinterest looking at Cottage Kitchens. Y'all know what happened next...
They all had planked ceilings! 
So, I asked Mr. DIY what he thought of a planked ceiling.
Oy, why do I do this?

At that point, installing a planked ceiling would mean several more weeks doing a new project...before the cabinets could be brought inside from the workshop.

Office / Craft Room Reveal

Well, I didn't make any money on our office / craft room makeover like I did with our Guest Room Makeover, but we didn't spend too much money making updating it. If you missed that makeover, you can find it HERE .

We painted our office back in May. I waited  to show you the reveal because I hadn't found any drapery panels that I liked. I ordered some from Target when I found the Guest Room curtains, but, I didn't really like them.

I was at HomeGoods a couple of weeks ago and found a couple that were perfect and Mr. DIY installed a new curtain rod for me. I also found a new bulletin board at HomeGoods on the same trip that I found the curtains.
