Well that was a long time of not writing. Not that a lot wasn’t going on in our kitchen, we just writing and recapping it :). When we left off in the kitchen, the cabinets were looking like this.
If you’ll notice, we had some molding above and below the cabinets. While it did a nice job of making our cabinets look more upscale, it definitely was leaving our counter top area feeling crunched. We removed the molding simply by unscrewing it from below.
I know that not everyone is going to like this look- however we love how this left us with a much more open feeling kitchen. I know that it only saves us about 2″ in height, but it makes a big difference when you are prepping food on the counters! I think that we’ll leave these extra moldings out when we redo the cabinets!
