White is so soothing. It is calm and quiet. When we set out to remodel our kitchen a couple of years ago I wanted all white. All white with a dark floor. As you can see from the pictures...it didn't quite turn out that way. I guess that is the chance you take when you have something done "custom"...but guess what? I'm glad those cabinets I ordered with the White paint and brown glaze over them didn't turn out as planned. What I got is rich and beautious!! Sometimes things happen for a reason. My island was SUPPOSED to be much lighter. A green no less, but a much lighter green. Sooo...those white chairs were SUPPOSED to look really good with it and guess what??? THEY DON'T!! So I am in the process of sanding them down and painting them black. I think that will be a better look...don't you?
