My current obsession is with cabinets.
|Take off doors, fill holes and paint|
Turquoise paint is Behr Gulf winds
Dark grey is SW black fox
More changes in the cabinets included painting all of them a dark grey. (They were stained brown with beige floors and beige counter tops and a beige backsplash. (not what I would have picked).They still need hardware but they are much improved, breaking up all of the beige. I chose that color because of the backsplash insert and I have black appliances which I wanted to blend in.
I love having an island. I use it all of the time. However, mine looked like the typical "builder grade" cabinet. I couldn't change the size of it because of the door swing of the pantry. I thought about taking it out and replacing it with a piece of furniture but it has an electrical outlet which is really handy and it already had great storage. So, like the upper cabinet, I removed the doors and gave it a rustic paint finish to make it look more like an individual piece. I added a bottle opener on one side and want to add a towel bar to the other which I haven't found yet. It still needs hardware like the other cabinets but like I've said before, you don't have to do everything all at once.
