Beadboard is up and I'm loving it!

One of the first things on my wish list for this house was adding beadboard to the kitchen and living room. We thought it would make the house have more of a cottage/farmhouse feel. So, with the help of an awesome family friend, my helpful father, and my sweet husband, the beadboard installation began last weekend. Please excuse my iPhone photography (my iPhone is always on hand, whereas my "nice" camera, not so much).

We're getting new carpet so everything is pretty rough looking right now. Progress usually isn't pretty. I only snapped a few pictures during the beginning stages of project when me and my mom were delivering lunch to the hard workers. Even with it not being painted yet, I knew it was going to change the rooms completely and I would love it.

It took about 3 days for the guys to finish up the project and they did a great job. The painters started this week so it has been primed and painted now. I will remember to take my "nice" camera to get some shots of the finished product and show some before pictures.

I have a feeling this addition will most likely be my favorite thing in the house for quite some time. Guests may find I'm unable to pull myself away from the beauty. Okay, that's a little extreme but I really am loving it. I can't be the only one who loves beadboard this much, can I?

Oh, and here's a shout out to my favorite beadboard guys, Mr. Charles, Daddy, and Colin (if anyone of you happen to read this): THANK YOU SO MUCH! Y'all did such a good job, I'm sure you wouldn't mind taking a couple weeks to install this everywhere in the house, right? Just kidding! Maybe... :)
