Chocolate In The Kitchen !!!



Before the water damage I had white cabinets. I wanted something different and this is what I came up with. The cabinets are white frosted oak with a chocolate glaze. I had painted the mural behind the sink before the damage. My friend said she thought I should continue it on around the back splash.After I finished the back splash I knew I was headed in the right direction. When it came to the wall color, I wanted the cabinets to stand out so I went with a dark chocolate. All this chocolate talk makes me want to start baking.
Ok, back to this post, so I will tell you I am very happy with my new kitchen

Picket I thought you would go for the backsplash. I thought it might be dark in there, but it isn't. Kathy

Kathy, that backsplash is so fabulous! You are so talented. Did you have a crick in your neck when you finished painting it? Your new cabinets are wonderful, and I love that faucet! laurie

Laurie, it really isn't that hard painting the back splash. I am loving the faucet too. We put the old one in and it had a crack in the hose, the contractor told me just to get a new one. Kathy

Kathy, your friend gave you good advice; what a stunning kitchen! I love your mural, and the cabinets are delightful.

Thanks Sally,I now just have to remember where I put everything. We went with one less upper cabinet, but I don't miss the space. Kathy
