in my dreams: green cupboards

You know that for awhile I have been going on and on about painting my cupboards. I see them as a different color. I guess I am discontent and that is not right! So I am going to work on being content...but maybe going ahead with the painting and remembering how thankful I am for alllllll of these cupboards!

Here is my kitchen now.


And here is a very badly enhanced photo with a day-glo green. But you sort of get the idea, right?!?! The green is what it needs! More of a mossy, lighter green...but green! Green solves all the problems in my house (that or chalkboard paint)

Soooo what do you think? Green cupboards? You know I can't just leave them alone- they will be painted- so you may as well accept that fact and get used to green :)

I think the green you are talking about will be very nice, but I am glad you are not planning on the exact color in your pic.

Sara,you make me laugh! and while green is not at the top of my favorite colors chart, I do think it will complement your kitchen nicely! Looking forward to do the day we see the final product!

I love your love of color. Your home is so bright and cheery. I would love to be half as brave as you are. I am painting our cabinets off white.

I love the green cabinet idea. However, here's a thought.. Sort of like, "If you give a mouse a cookie." If you paint the cabinets green, what will you think of the counter top? I don't recommend painting that. Had a friend who did, and it was a disaster. It looked nice, but it wasn't durable enough for a counter. She had to baby it and wasn't very pleased. So, anyway, then would you be discontent with the counter and want to pay big bucks to change them out? Just wondering... BUT, I still think the cabinets would be lovely green. I'm very partial to the color you describe. Can't wait to see it.

Just think...natural green will have to sew new curtains, too. Green is so pleasant and relaxing, too.
Good shamrock luck :) Ana
