Our home was built in the early 90’s and while there are a ton of things that we absolutely love about it (the layout, the space, the amazing amount of light), there are a few things that we just don’t.
For example: We love the huge vaulted ceilings, not the pot shelves.
We’ve made an effort to slowly remove things like the gray tile and of course, the stained wood doors and molding. We are still living with the mauve tile in the master bath and getting closer to saying goodbye to our kitchen cabinets.
But this post is all about the bullnose walls that came with our 20 year old home. We’ve had a few places throughout the house that have curved room transitions instead of framed doorways. Case in point: the entrance to our kitchen.
Again, we love the large entrance to the room… the curved transitional walls, not so much. Our solution was to frame the bullnose in and give the doorway a more traditional look.
Tyson took this stucco entry and added some flat boards to square up the entrance.
He then added big chunky molding to finish off the look.
Did I mention that Tess was my photographer on the project? This was another one of those things that was tackled while I was off somewhere else. I’m not sure how this keeps happening.
On the plus side, my little photographer included some detail shots just for you. You’re welcome.
Before you start hating me for missing out on all the fun, know that I’m in charge of the finishing. I’m always amazed at what a difference caulking makes to the completion of a project.
Framing in the entry is a small change that gives the area a grander feel.
The transition on the interior still needs to be completed, but that will happen once the cabinets are painted.
One step closer to having this kitchen wrapped up… a thousand more steps to go.
What are some of the more dated features of your home that you really love? Which are you eager to get rid of? Are you a fan of bullnose walls and pot shelves? It’s okay… we can still be friends.
