Happy Friday! And when I say happy, I mean HAPPY! I am headed to Chicago with my husband as a surprise for my big 4-O(MG) birthday! Looking forward to a relaxed weekend with good food, great shopping and some pampering. 🙂
Thought I’d share some pictures of my kitchen and what I would love, love, LOVE to do with it. Curious to hear your thoughts and ideas – especially those of you who have had similar kitchen projects.
So, on to the photos. Mind you, these are before we moved in, but you get the gist. This way you can view my kitchen without the breakfast dishes in the sink, lunch boxes on the island, basketball brackets on the breakfast bar…
You can see that the cabinets have a yellowish, gold tone to them. I think this is some sort of an attempt at “Tuscan” or something. Because I have one of these in my house too.
Yes, that would be a painted niche. What, you thought it was a view to a beautiful meadow?
What I would like to do, is paint these bad boys white, perhaps even with a light glazing. I’m just really not a fan of the current look. And I don’t care for the crown moulding part at the top of the cabinets in a stain. That just seems to cut them off, you know? I would also like to change out the pendants.
They’re great cabinets, and there are flecks of cream in the granite counters, so I really think it could work. I don’t know that this is a project I want to tackle myself (would love to hear from those of you who have). Where do you begin in choosing “the right white” for the cabinets? Was painting the cabinets a nightmare? Was it worth the effort doing it yourself?
Should I consider the creamy white used on my baseboard mouldings and other cabinetry in my house like what I have in my family room? You can see what I’m talking about here, from when I was taping off for my sectional:
Looking forward to your thoughts. Also need to work on convincing my husband that painting the kitchen cabinets is a good idea. 🙂
Enjoy your weekend! I most certainly will!
