do you wanna have a slumba partay in my basement? Do I make your heart beat like an 808 drum?
sorry. wrong question.
So when we moved into our home circa 2007 (I think? how sad is that?) we found it as is. There was no building. No selection of materials. No options. It came with generic builder tan walls. and carpet. OH the carpet. But that’s another story for another day…
But I love my house, so some things you live with as is. I mean, some people have to deal with bright yellow cabinets and giant holes and etc. etc. so poor me, I know. And our kitchen is quite nice. We love our kitchen. But it’s honestly not what I would have chosen for a kitchen, as far as colors and what nots. I’m not an ingrate. We have nice cabinets. I love them. But I was kinda thinking about (PLEASE don’t flog me) painting the island.
Please excuse the non styled pics. These are just shots to give you an idea. Styled pics will come later. maybe.
I need a realtor’s advice on this one. I know I can make it look professional. That’s not the issue. I want to know if it will bring down my home’s value. I’m breaking free of my rule follower ways, and I really want to just paint the cabinet, but preserve the rest. I’ve never liked the back or sides of the island. It’s so plain and pressed cheap board-ish. I want it painted, and I want to mount an awesome chunky frame on the backside, with chalkboard paint, so the kids can play to their heart’s content while I paint cook.
So I want to know, will that make someone mad? I mean, again, who’s preconceived notion of a house am I following anyway? I just don’t want to hurt our value. But then again, it’s JUST an island.
way to pay attention to detail, Lowder. Thanks for that white spec plug. BOOOOOO.
I’m thinking a nice cream color, done in our tea stain. No crazy bright purples or anything. Just a little something to brighten it up. Preserve the rest for the next owner, and in the meantime, GLASS KNOBS for a hint of color. Yes? No? Why? WHY NOT????
again, excuse the mess. Just sayin…I’ve been itching to do this for a while, and now I need some opinions, so I can sway Jamin to the light side. Oh, and those countertops are so going in a few years, as well. Since we’ll be here for a while…I may as well be happy with my kitchen, right???
This can be found on house of turquoise, and I may be mistaken, but I also think its urban grace interiors.
SOOOO what do you think? LET ME KNOW BELOW!!!
