  1. Can’t wait to see your countertops. I wish that is what I was talking about in my post. I am finally switching my blog to a self-hosted site! I have been so limited by wordpress.com that it is time to bite the bullet and just do it! xo Kristin

    1. Well, now I have to call you a brave woman. I’m scared to do what you are doing. I’m always afraid of switching to a self-hosted site.

  2. I’m a new-ish reader to your blog. And I am so jealous of you taking down that little wall in your kitchen! Can’t wait to see what you have planned!

    I have a similar little wall – that I despise! ๐Ÿ™‚ hmmmm…

  3. YOU ARE WONDER-WOMAN!
    The 6 INCH RAISED SHELF “WALL”, IS THE ONLY THING IN MY ALMOST PERFECT HOME I TRULY HATE! IT’S A NIGHTMARE MAGNET FOR EVERYONE TO PLACE GLASSES, ETC. AND THEN THE ITEMS FALL, BREAK, AND RED WINE FLIES ALL OVER THE ROOM!!!
    I was describing to my husband how I thought it would be a “simple” fix and POW there was your POST!
    Hopefully we will be able to lower the stupid shelf to the counter height (it has a granite top that matches the granite counter tops) reuse the granite top, and seam it to the counter top. Well it’s a plan?
    Glad I found you by way of Cassie!
    I love all I have seen going back into your older posts….

  4. Wow, you just jump right in….with company coming, you amaze me! You have wonder woman beat, hands down!

    1. Wonder woman? I have to tell my husband that, maybe he can start calling me that ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Das ist ja wieder ne geile Nummer!;)
    Wenn schon was umgestalten, dann aber richtig! Selbst ist die Frau, high five;)
    Ich kann den Blick, von deinem hubby;)
    Den bekomm ich auch immer!
    Und weisst du was, ich bin auch dabei meine Küche grade neu zu machen, neben all dem anderen kram hier.
    Bin mal auf deine Ergebnisse gespannt;)
    Ganz viele liebe Grüße…

    1. Also bin ich nicht die einzige Frau die solche Blicke bekommt, Gott sei Dank ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Ich freu mich auch Deine Küchenergebnisse zu sehen,

  6. WOW you go girl! I would be so scared to tackle this on my own!

  7. I’m getting so excited…hardly can wait until Friday! And by the way…your last line made me totally LOL! XO, Aimee

  8. Yay for demo work and making progress!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. WOW! Look at your go, your rock! I remember using a saw to cut out a similar wall in our last house and I was NOT prepared for the dust. We had it everywhere, and just when I thought we got it all..there was more. I am so excited to see where this is all going.

    1. Yes, the dust is horrible. I thought that I cleaned it all but it keeps coming back.

  10. You go girl! Totally want to do this myself. Thanks for sharing.

    I have a similar wall that I am trying to cut down just like you did. I can’t get the contractors to call me back to do it for me so, I’m attempting to do the job myself. I’m scared and excited! Any chance you could give me a few more details how you did this? Like, the tools you used? Thanks!

    1. Hi Lisa, I only used the circular saw that I show in the photos but in some cases a reciprocating saw might work better. Before you start, make sure you know where your electrical outlets are and where the cable runs to. You have to also make sure that the electricity is turned off in the kitchen. Then run an extension cord from another outlet that works, so you can use your saw. Mark your line that you want to cut with a level and start sawing the wall off. Good luck and cheers to girl power ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. Love your kitchen! I am wondering how many inches your overhang is above your stools? Hoping to find that someone finds less than 12 inches a usable overhang…..

    1. Ha yes I do find it usable and I have 9 inches instead of 12 because we didn’t have room. Good luck!
