When it comes to home renovations, few are as tedious and stressful as a full kitchen renovation. But if anyone could make this time consuming home project fun, it’s Drew Barrymore. The talk show host is embarking on a DIY demolition of her whimsical pink kitchen, destroying everything herself with a hammer in hand — and yes, there were even some happy tears shed.

Barrymore first shared an Instagram video of herself going to town on the green and white checkered tile and white cabinets in the kitchen of her New York City apartment, donning protective eyewear as she went all out. Aggressive grunting, jubilant laughter, and a narrow miss of a hand injury were all included, with the hilarious clip soundtracked to the Home Depot theme song.

Proving that doers do, in fact, get more done, the actress captioned the clip: “Don’t mind me, I’m just having the time of my LIFE.”

A day later, she shared a video update after the famed floral wallpaper and cabinetry had been torn down, looking teary-eyed as she gazed out a window that the previous owners had covered with drywall. “It’s so hopeful,” she mused about the hidden window, “how something so covered up and dark… you can pry it open and create light.”

Showing the lead-up to that triumphant moment, Barrymore can be seen explaining to the camera that she “knew” there was a window that had been covered. Upon discovering the secret window, Barrymore showcased a wide range of emotions: barking like a dog, screaming with joy, and weeping as she tore into the drywall and declared, “I knew there was a window here. I knew it. I knew it.”

The reveal was clearly a big deal for Barrymore, as she captioned the video: “Part two of the renovation. What a MOMENT this was for me. You can pry it open and create light…”

Given Barrymore’s penchant for bright colors and vibrant decor, it stands to reason that her forthcoming kitchen design will be equally as unique as the pink and green she’s leaving behind, and fans surely can’t wait to see what surprises she’s got up her sleeve along the way.
