I promised pictures and now you have them! Introducing our kitchen bar before renovation. Notice the large gray overhang. It was so cumbersome and we kept running into it. It also took up a couple of feet of the sitting room next to the kitchen.
Next, you’ll see the work in progress:
So we ripped the ugly gray top off and replaced it with a nice piece of wood.
Now that the painting’s done, this is the final result. It’s much easier to walk around and doesn’t feel so bulky. We love it!
We owe a special thanks to John Elliott for helping us get started [well, for doing most of the work on the construction part, but the painting was hard too!]. Many coats of paint later, we are finally finished.
