Ok, so the stove is somewhat in the living room, but gosh darn it I get to cook with my gas...I am not giving that up yet. (but that pony wall is gone.)

AUSTIN, TEXAS — My head is spinning. What did I just do??

Geez…at least I kept the gas connected to the stove — and the sink connected to the water.

I have to thank our fantastic ESTEBAN who stayed strong after hours and hours of demo work.

“What next, he would ask…what next, GRINGA??”

The question has always been...why this pony wall that is a total 'flow' stopper. Well...we found out today it was part of an original wall.

“Am I LOCO?” I’d ask Esteban.

“No Daniela,” he’d say.

Wonderful ESTEBAN…I could not have done it without you.

What next? I have no brain cells. I do not want to make one more decision.

Esteban took the wrecking bar to the pony wall and the discovery of the 'cherry wallpaper' is made.

But the result…we netted out on a fine side …and I’m pleased as punch.

The PONY WALL came out. The nasty Holly Hobby corner cabinet (with scalloped edges) came out.

And there’s a full bin of cabinets in a waste management bag outside.

I would love to hear your ideas on what decade the paper is from...remember, the house is 1929ish.

It was a great day!! A day I have wished for for many, many years.

I chucked those darn blue laminate tops with the fury of a crazed woman. It felt great!! I won!!

Oh yeah baby...underneath the tile is a lovely yellow marmoleum thing circa 1973...and under that...it looks like the original floor.

As this was 'discovery' I just had to know what I was working with under the sheetrock -- and mercy me not only is it 'planking' but it's a groovy green. WOOHOO!!
