Brown cabinet country dark updating
At least in this house, if it’s a splurge, I’m stuck with it.If it was inexpensive, it’d be easier to stomach the change.)So now with the cabinet and counter decisions made, I was left with the hardware and backsplash to try to pull this whole mess together.
Because 6-8 agonizing weeks later, when our cabinets finally arrived, I almost cried* at the sight of them. The kitchen stayed like that for a while, and the stark difference between the muddy new cabinets and the fresh white old ones wrenched my little decor-lovin’ heart every time I looked at it. I decided I’d forego the countertops and backsplash I originally wanted and try to choose counters that would make the cream cabinets seem a little brighter… We shopped for all different kinds of counters, knowing that we wanted something solid-surface.Finally, those years of living in tiny rentals and gazing longingly at home photos and magazines would pay off! : big box stores, tiny cabinet makers in boutique shops, weird warehouses in the ghetto, you name it.
