Guess what we are doing next in our Kitchen Renovation?


Okay, so I have a little quiz for you.  Smile

The following five kitchen inspiration pictures all have one thing in common.

It’s the one thing that we are going to do next in our “Honey, I’m only going to paint the Cabinets” Kitchen Renovation!

Look closely and see if you know what it is….


















What do you think we are up to next?

Come on…take a guess!

I’ll let you know if you are right in my next post. 

FUN STUFF, y’all!


  1. I’m thinking maybe a bEautiFul wood floor AND a bEautiFul wood ceiling … (not sure of the materials you’ll use, but whatever you choose, you can bet it is going to be bEautiFul !!!!!!!!!!!!! Can’t wait … and how’s the additional coming along ?? You haven’t talked about it in a while.

  2. I am thinking that you will redo your island. Turn it length-wise(to give you more room) and make it longer.
    I am really enjoying your “I’m just painting the cabinets project”.

  3. EEeeeeee! It’s the ceilings! I’m so excited! I LOVE these wood ceilings, they are sooo beautiful! My neighbor has one in his bathroom & I adore it. It’s going to look so wonderful!

  4. I am going with wood ceiling….when I saw the first picture, I thought….neat a corner pantry, but then remembered you just built the new pantry….can’t wait to see how it all turns out!

  5. Well, now I have to wipe the drool off my computer. Thanks. Those kitchens are all gorgeous! I’m going to have to go with planked ceiling too. At first I was thinking maybe glass doors, but the last one didn’t have them so I had to go back and look again. I can’t wait to see what you do!

  6. Wooden ceiling perhaps? :) Are you thinking white or natural light wood colour? Or maybe something different??
    And again… can’t wait to see it!

  7. your putting a dog bed in the kitchen for Champ? That’s awesome! congrats!. Where you getting it? They have some nice ones at Tractor Supply, camoflauge would go great, you wouldn’t even notice it.

  8. Traci please tell me you all will be doing beadboard or tongue and groove on the ceiling. It will look so good in there now that you opened everything up by taking down the cabinets

  9. It’s the fancy new ceiling. I cannot WAIT to see how it turned out. I am secretly liking the look of all those kitchens, but we’re in a bungalow and that style doesn’t mesh well.

    But, I’ll admire your fabulous kitchen from afar ( I already know it’s gonna be great!)

  10. So you’re going with a boarded ceiling, are you? Will you do beadboard or planks? I’m guessing you’ll go with a painted wood ceiling, but the natural finish is pretty, too.

    By the way, I love your new pantry! That Cy–he’s one amazing guy, isn’t he? I’m so glad y’all have sons–just think how there will be four very blessed women who will have incredible husbands some day, all of whom are like their dad! What a legacy!!

  11. love all those pics, girl! you have some awesome taste! swoon! i predict wood ceilings and crown molding in you future! EEEEK! CAN’T WAIT! :)

  12. Ceilings!!! I am in love with the wood on the ceilings and that is on my list of to do things to my next kitchen. Can’t wait to see your “After shots”.

  13. plank ceiling….of course…and it’s going to look fantastic in your space! I think I want to do it as well….go ahead and get on it…so we can have your fabulous tutorials!

  14. Well…everyone else seems to think you’re doing the ceiling next and I guess technically that would have to come before replacing the light fixture…but that was going to be my guess….new light fixtures.

  15. Your kitchen remodel is “looking up.” Hey, check out that ceiling! ;) I admit, I get a little giddy when I click on your blog in anticipation of your updates — especially the pictures & videos! How’s the home addition coming along?

  16. It’s the plank/bead board ceiling, baby! I so want one of those in my kitchen too! Can’t wait to hear how you are going to do it on a budget.

  17. Wood ceiling?

    These pics make me want to cry. The kitchen in my last house was enormous and beautiful and had so much potential.

    I hope your kitchen makeover is everything you want and more! Lucky girl to have such a handyman for a husband!

  18. Must be the ceiling. I’m wanting to do that in our back porch room so can’t wait to see the tutorials. How is the addition coming? You seem to have a lot going on which is a testament to a secure family.

  19. It’s gotta be the ceiling but for a minute there I was all about the lighting. My guess is lighting might be next on the list, after the ceiling? You go girl!

  20. It’s going to be a fabulous beadboard ceiling!

    I’ve been wanting to do that for years! (to cover up the horrible “popcorn” ceiling), I’m just afraid of the mess. Looking forward to seeing yours.

  21. My first guess was painting the cabinets white/cream bit then I noticed the ceilings in all the pics! Maybe both??!!

  22. Ya see? What did I tell you about that ceiling!!! It is gonna be “da bomb.” Those wooden countertops are gorgeous too. I’ve seen them done with Ikea countertops and stained dark. I hear it is quite inexpensive. On another note, I got my Primitive Pumpkin yesterday from your church friend and IT IS GORGEOUS. EVERYONE, GO AND GET ONE, YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY. I know they sound a little pricey and the shipping is high, but the quality is there and you will have that dang pumpkin forever! It is huge! It is heavy as you know, but for everyone out there, the gift shops would be charging double for this thing and I know since I frequent them so often!!!! Thanks for the heads up, Traci. BTW, the next quiz has to be a “little” harder. lol

  23. I’m going with hanging back up the newly painted WHITE cabinets…..Although, I have a feeling that would be too easy so it probably is something more strenuous as the ceiling..ha ha

  24. Wood ceiling and wood floor!! I had wood ceilings in my old house and absolutely loved then! Can’t wait to see more of your kitchen! Love your blog!

  25. I have to tell you, I have been drooling over the kitchen from fortheloveofahouse for about a month and a half…I am soooo tempted to paint my beautiful red cupboards white, to put wood on the ceiling, and build in some cupboards beside my fireplace! We have a very close layout to that kitchen….while it would KILL me to paint over that red, OH am I ever tempted?!?!?! :)

  26. Hi Traci, Well this is easy…..I will guess that you will be doing the beautiful wood ceilings in your kitchen makeover. Beautiful pics to share with us and to let us drool over. Linda S. in NE

  27. WOW!! Your kitchen is going to be in BHG soon!! You and your hubby make such and awesome team. Together you are making your dream home. Awesome!

    BTW0 I am trying my best to save my money to go to the Haven Conference. I would love to meet you in person!

  28. I have these same pictures in my inspiration file!! I am in LOVE with the ceilings. We are about to “just paint” my kitchen too, hahaha!

  29. I am so showing these photos to my hubby. We have stomped ceilings which we both don’t love and the wood ceilings would be so perfect. Thanks for the inspiration. Can’t wait to see them! White or wood…hmmmmm…

  30. Looks like I am a little late on the unanimous vote on the CEILING! :) Can’t wait to see it all come together! You’re making me tired watching your progress! lol
