Some other things I had my handyman guru carpenter guy do were install beadboard- my absolute favorite! Some may call it tongue & groove; I however, call it beadboard. This is when we had our first big disagreement. I thought we should put it on the ceiling, as well, as wrap it around the kitchen (my ceilings are lower in the kitchen); guru carpenter guy thought it would be too much—so for the sake of our relationship, I let him have his way!

Then I got my electrician guys, Dave & Jeff (always good for the neighborhood country music gossip) to install my retro pendant lights, and they fixed a lot of other little things so my house would not burn down. Then they added another power outlet so we could plug in the coffee maker. Once this was all finished, it was time for my handyman to come back and do the back splash – subway tiles—of course!

So today’s pictures are pictures I pulled that are a lot closer to the reality of what my kitchen looks like—1930’s galley style kitchen, with a couple of farm animals (two canines) running around, a little architectural beadboard wrapped around and two thirds up the wall (still not on the ceiling) to give it some charm, retro lighting. Finally, some white subways tiles!

My kitchen looks a lot like this - now for that dishwasher!
