Small bar/countertop area - I hate it and want to lower, what do you think?
This bar area is pretty much useless and my kitchen is small and I feel like it "cuts off" the kitchen visually and doesn't make it appear open at all. Its usually not this big of a mess, I'm painting on the other counter so everything is schlopped to this counter. So, I want to cut it off and lower it like most kitchens are these days which give a more open feel. I was just going to use the bar top to "fill - in" that area to extend it like regular top, but it extends on the side facing the camera and the back of the lower countertop comes up, I guess I could cut it, but my hubby is not on board with this whole idea at all, so I need it to be something I can do relatively easy. Any easy ideas??? I was going to paint my countertop anyways, so I just need a way to make it all match so that when I paint it will all come together. I guess I could go to Habitat and watch for a piece that might match up sizewise for that entire countertop area, but I doubt that will happen soon. It has a diagonal seam where it joins the other piece on the wall side. Thanks for your help!
