I Love White!

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?
















P.S. Those of you that know me know I have 3 boys. Three stinky, sweaty, dirty, messy boys...so why the white? It washes great!! Not only do I love white...but I love Clorox almost as much!!

I LOVE your kitchen Colleen!! And I do agree, that the chairs will look better in black! It's lovely...and your cabinet's look great in that color I think!

Love your kitchen, oh how I wish I had an island.

And I love white too, but with 3 boys (1 DH) and a dog I am afraid!

Hope to meet you in Omaha!

The pictures don't do it justice!! It's such a great space. Now you need to show us all your collections in your cabinets, etc. I'm bringing a large handbag next visit. You don't check bags at the door do you??

Clorox and white with little boys around is the only solution!

Your kitchen turned out great, but I think you are right, and I would change the chair's color too. But, they sure are nice chairs and fit the kitchen well. How pretty.
