Kitchen Reno Update: Bye Bye Bulkhead!

Happy Friday! I wanted to pop on here & share with you some progress we made today in the kitchen. I figured since the kitchen needs so much work we might as well take this baby step by baby step. Today the one thing in the kitchen that was really bugging me was removed. The bulkhead!! Honestly it was fine when there were cabinets hanging on the upper part of the kitchen, but when the cabinets were down it cut off the entire kitchen & made the space feel smaller. One of the main objectives of this kitchen/sunroom remodel was to make the space feel more open so taking this bulkhead out is really going to help that cause. We had our good friend Denny over today while we were at work & he so kindly took out the bulkhead & started to take out the tiles on the counters & backsplash. He will be helping us with a few other dirty projects & we are so thankful because time is not our friend lately & he has been doing this for years so he truly is an expert in remodeling. Next up we will be finishing tile removal, doing some major work on the opposite side of the room I haven’t shown you, replacing all the windows, revealing the beam that runs between the sunroom & kitchen, & quite possibly removing the bead board ceiling as well for an exciting idea Jose & I came up with tonight. Here is the progress we have made so far this week…

Earlier this week we were here:


& today….


I’m sorry, & maybe it’s just me, but without those bulkheads it’s already so different & the ceiling seems higher. Denny also removed the oven hood & the light fixture that was above the sink. I am learning SO MUCH through this whole process & I’m loving every single second of it. This kitchen and sunroom makeover isn’t for the faint of heart. Also, all those appliances are going as well. We kept some appliances from our last house so we will probably be using those. Also, we are purging all of our dishes & starting all over with a clean slate which I’m super excited about. When you’ve been married for 10 years & have moved countless times… it’s a great time to start over. I hope you guys liked this update. I’m feeling so much better today than I was earlier this week. I see the light at the end of the tunnel. We are still very far out from having a beautiful kitchen, but we will have one someday!
