This is my kitchen table. I planned to paint it black when we moved. The top definitely has to be redone, the kids have scrubbed it too dealth, and I now have excess marker marks from coloring projects. Now, the blue is back in and I don't know what to do. I love the blue, but bought the black barstools thinking it would all match. Do I have to match? Would it all look better? Option one is to just sand and stain the top and seats a darker stain, more antiquey, rustic looking. Second option, paint it all black, keep with the plan, quit trying to change things up. Third option, paint the top only and 4 of the chairs different colors to bring in color. Husband doesn't like third option, so if that is the concensus I'll have to wait till he has another business trip.
Before photo of kitchen. If you haven't been following long, my WHOLE house was painted this green color(looks blue in photo.) Everything! Pantry-Yep. Garage-Yep. Linen closet- Yep.
Sneak preview of remodel. We moved the cabinet above the refrigerator up. Painted bases. We still haven't started on the doors. We still haven't ordered or picked out countertops. I have tried every light fixture to replace "the box"... chandaliers, the pool table type lights, extra large ceiling mounts- can't find anything that puts out enough light. We can't add can lights without tearing up the WHOLE ceiling to wire (2nd story above.) I have painted it the same color as the cabinets for now. I am going to glaze that. Then, keep looking. Could you live with open cabinets? I go crazy from the messiness of it. People don't have to ask where the glasses are, though.
This is my table! It was featured on A Soft Place to Land and I am stealing her photo. See the before and after here.
Pottery Barn painted black.
