since we are finally approaching a closing date here, i am getting mentally prepared to do a lot more painting! the first thing i said when jordan found these condos, and brought me to look at them, was that, although the kitchen appliances and overall kitchen look was clearly "nice" (black granite countertops, cherry-stained cabinetry, and a beigey stone backsplash with black/stainless appliances, for the visual), it was definitely NOT my style, and i would be painting the cabinets. he agreed that that was okay, and gave me the ok to paint them when the time came.
i've always loooved nicole from making it lovely's kitchen, and crisp white cabinetry. more than likely, i will paint our cabinets white, but it is fun to dream about...
mustard-colored cabinets! (when i came up with the color mustard yellow for the kitchen, i googled images of mustard cabinets, and this is the only photo i found. i actually remember the photo from a domino magazine story about cooking)
though i do love the mustard cabinets, i think the combo of those with our black countertops would read too "bee"-like to me (i'm weird), so i probably wouldn't do that. it's a cute look though.
more than likely, i will spice up the white cabinets with cool new hardware.
has anyone ever retiled on top of existing tile? or is that stupid? it's probably not smart. how do you remove tile? is it hard? i really hate the "stone" backsplash we have...suggestions?
