Bye Bye Golden Oak!
In the meantime, I have been living in a sea of white paint samples, trying to figure out which is "the one!"
This is quite the process! I've been
stalking looking at other blogs to see what color they have used, since this is such a popular thing to do these days. The samples all look so similar, yet I can see differernces in them all. I am currently leaning toward one called Bone Folder by Martha Stewart. But there is also English Cream, Glass of Milk, Magnolia Blossom, and on and on....... Oh well, I have a few weeks to decide! I am still on the fence on having them glazed, too, so we will have to see.....
Although we are not putting is new cabinetry, I am adding a few cabinets to our kitchen during this project. We currently have a little built in desk that I am replacing with a three drawer cabinet. We put the desk in when we built our house ten years ago so our then 11 year old daughter could use the computer and do her homework while I made dinner, etc. Obviously, the computer has been replaced by laptops and tablets, and the little girl is now a soon to be senior in college. The drawered cabinet will be such a storage booster and provide us with more usable counter space.
I am also having a 36" appliance garage installed to hide away the cluttered "of the everyday" - cellphones, keys, mail, etc. That stuff drives me nuts - but where else do you put it! So, poof! Appliance garage to the rescue - yay! I am also planning on having a few doors fitted with glass & interior lighting. Fun!
When all is said & done, the project should be done sometime in October. It will be fun to blog about the progress. Hope you will join me!
