So, how do you all like the house? Did you notice a trend in all of the before photos? Some form of gold or yellow everywhere! I’m not opposed to people painting their walls that, but if you have viewed my pins on Pinterest then you know that I love light and airy….and white! Sorry, Mom! I do love that white! And not just any white! I love bright white….like Benjamin Moore White Diamond kind of white. Just like the white trim, I want to paint our built in cabinets in the den to match.
Of course, like any man would, my husband loves the cabinets just they way they are, and he would prefer to just leave them alone. Plus, it is something else he sees himself having to paint. To be quite honest, I don’t blame him at all because painting is better in theory than in the actual act of doing it.
So, here’s the question….do I paint the cabinets or leave them alone? Or, the better question is how do I paint the cabinets? I am loving cabinets that are painted mainly one color but have the back of the cabinets painted a different color. Do you agree? Does it give it that little extra pop of character? What do you think? Weigh in on what you think. These are some inspirational photos that I found on Pinterest, and they are pinned on my ‘The Living Area’ board. The background colors of these are not exactly my choice on a few, but it gives you the idea.
Let’s start off with white on white….
And now for white and a color background…
And our current cabinet in its current state of plain old stained wood….
So, what do you think? Comment and let me know what you think I should do!
