I found this on on Etsy! My Grandmother had one exactly like it in her kitchen. Now my brother has hers on his kitchen wall.

I do realize that to the normal person this would look kind of creepy...but to me...it brings back memories of my Grandma's house! :D All the relatives used to say she looked like my mom...sans 2nd pair of eyes! haha

Ahhh....gotcha. I've never heard that term before. They were from my grandparent's house. The one bottle opener is a coke one, he LOVED coca cola. Always drank it warm....We also have a Cap Catcher.

That one is a little unique, you're right.

Beadboard and trim is up in the dining room, pics to follow in the next day or so. We're doing the wiring in the hall and hanging the one door tomorrow.

We found a little "surprise" under the fridge. All fixed, along with the random white drywall behind it, complete with the hole in it.

Oh, I love that room! Very pretty - I like the beadboard as is. So comfortable looking- makes me want some hot chocolate and some bread fresh out of the oven.
:P

Thanks!! I couldn't wait to get it done, it was sooooo blah before. It took me a while to really decide what to do, but knowing we were putting some holes in the wall to run the wiring made it easier, I'm HORRIBLE at dry wall patching as well as mudding and taping.

We were thinking the same, leave it and just sand the trim around the two windows so it mostly matches the new trim and bead board. the hall, which is directly to the right in the photo has the same bead board now. It was odd, those were the only rooms with no wood (veneer paneling or actual planks). They just didn't flow before. Now the bedroom feels a bit weird to me, with the white plank walls, but DH really likes it so I'm good with it. It's also the only room with a painted floor now, but the bathroom and living room have unique to them floors too.

Thanks! I LOVE that table. We picked it up along with a bunch of other various pieces including an old cash register, old fireplace tools and other stuff for $150.

The saga continues, the hall is getting finished!
