For years I've been debating if I should
paint my kitchen cabinets.
I keep going back and forth.
I just don't LOVE my cabinets. I look at them and think, "HELLO 1985!"
My husband doesn't want me too. He says that they are in good shape and really doesn't look as awful as I think. And just because the wood color isn't in style means we should paint them to go with the current trend.
Then a little more about my upbringing...
For generations my family has been the furniture business. I remember growing up friends would ask if my house gets new furniture every other year or so.
My parents knew what to look for in furniture. They would save and go for the high quality solid wood stuff. And then get it for a good deal since they sold it (and only if no interested buyers were wanting it too).
My siblings and I had the same bedroom sets all our lives growing up. The dining room table is over 30 years old and rock solid wood. (I'm actually inheriting it when my parents move to a smaller retirement home!)
Anyway I told my family some of my ideas with my cabinets and they just CRINGED!
"Never paint real wood!!!" they would say.
"Painting wood is just a trend. Trends don't last very long. Your cabinets are oak. Oak is a classic and will be back in style before you know it."
I know they're right. So I don't really think I could really bring myself to do it.
Unless you can convince me otherwise.
I do love looking at other bloggers that had the guts to just paint theirs.
Then I would just dream about what I could do with my kitchen.
So many ideas I have...
I thought this look may be doable for my kitchen.
What do you think?
Are you for painting wood or against it?
Should I paint mine?
Have you, or would you, paint yours?
