Help with my cabinets...do I paint?
February 20, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We purchased a home and are doing some updating. The entire home was "upgraded" to hickory cabinets from the builders cabinets (semi custom home). They are really nice quality solid wood, pullout drawers, etc. but I don't care for the look of Hickory. We are pricing changing the kitchen cabinets, but to save some money, we are looking at having the bathrooms painted by a cabinet painter. He can even do glazes, etc. We are upgrading the granite tops, sinks, faucets so I want this to look right. The floors are all Autumn slate with lots of taupes and creams. I'm thinking about a cream color with a brown glaze. Thoughts? When done right, is this a good option instead of replacing? Any other colors come to mind? He thought he could even add some furniture legs before painting to give a custom look. Good idea to paint or do I need to bite the bullet? Thanks!
