In a Pickle

In a Pickle

The only thing worse than orange fakey-oak cabinets might just be pickled fakey-oak cabinets. Pinkish, shiny, and when paired with a white formica, as with Mary’s before kitchen here, a big bowl of uninspiring blahness.

So change was in order, starting with a fresh coat of Dried-Thyme on the cabinets and updating just about everything else. My very, very favorite part is the tile backsplash, it literally made me sigh out loud. See it up close on her blog Humble 1021.

    Beautiful transformation! It looks like they had a great foundation to work with as the lines on the cabinetry are great but that paint color and the marble tops really takes this room from nice to WOW!!

    The after is much better than the before (as usual)

    I really like this. The colors are very calming. Makes me feel relaxed just looking at the pix. Great job!

    Oooh, ooh, oh, I love this!! I really want to paint the cabinets in my cookie cutter home, and I would love to get new butcher block countertops 🙂

    I really love the mint paired with the gray. It’s such a popular color scheme these days! Here’s my blog on kitchen design that I hope you’ll enjoy:
