Problem Solved, Problem Created


So in solving the problem of the wood floor, I created a new problem…


…a dark kitchen. {This picture is just natural light.}


Even with the lights on it is still a little dark for me…also throw in the fact that the floor is raw wood in this picture. After varnishing it, it will look something like this {the floors age makes gives a varied color affect}…


…the cabinets will definitely be too dark together for my liking. I had thought about painting my cabinets a light grey…Stately Graystone by Valspar. I just don’t know.

imageMy real problem is I love farmhouse kitchens and am really attracted to white. Which is ridiculous because 2 labs + 2 kids + 1 landscaper hubby = a lot of dirt. Painting my cabinets grey give me another problem, I will definitely need to repaint the kitchen. I can’t find a color that I like to go with the grey AND I always like a color that will coordinate with my Christmas decor {I know, I know…weird}.

I would love to have my kitchen look like this…

Minus the chrome fixtures…and I would love a double basin drainboard sink!

What do y’all think, should I be brave & white or not??

  1. Love the new floors. Trying to get Liz to let me pull up the carpet as we have an older home with wood floors. I like the idea of white too. Yet another project I have to undertake the next couple of years is to revamp the kitchen. We’re going white cabinets too.

  2. If you want white cabinets, paint them white. πŸ™‚ I am wondering if I should paint mine or just restrain the wood. I too love white but it would be a huge project I’m not sure I want to do. If I stain them and if I end up not liking them them I could always paint them. Good luck with yours. I am going to stay tuned. If you do, I might! Hahahaha. Have a great Monday! Koko

  3. paint them white!! It’ll look fabulous! Keep a spray bottle of simple green under the sink, it’s amazing to clean with! Easy too!
