We still need to paint the bottom cabinets on the other wall [they're prepped and ready to go] as well as the toekick. I held off as I'm feeling a bit indecisive. I would love something fun like gold, yellow, or stripes/pattern. But selling the house is creeping up on our list of things we want to do in 2014. So now I'm debating between black and white. Either one I picture as being a hair magnet.
We are still so in love with the changes. It's so much brighter and cheery. We get a lot of light in the dining room but there was something about the other end of the kitchen that just seemed to soak it up. Remember on this wall, this is what we started with:
|during our first tour of the house- code for 'not my crap'|
Before, it was just soooo much orange between the flooring and the cabinets. Now there's contrast and my eyes don't bleed so much.
I can't wait to get it restyled for Christmas and clean the look up a bit. I've gotten slack about it all since we've been working on the cabinets.
In other kitchen/dining room news, we have new to us chairs. No one likes them but us and we're ok with that.
I had to convince Oscar that they were forever chairs. We found them at a thrift store for $100 for four. Maybe it's a bit much but we plan on selling our previous ones and they were in perfect condition. They still smell like the thrift store a bit every now and then and I kind of like it. Weird, I know. Now if someone would just trade me tables [one that preferably doesn't show grime and hair minutes after cleaning]. We have captain chairs at the ends and I squint and pretend they are white eames shell chairs. You can see it too, right?
I know I haven't been posting as much. I've been juggling a lot lately and I want to thank you for hanging in there! So what's your opinion on the toe kick? White, black, or something else?
