Beadboard paneling in kitchen ? ? ? ? ?
We are finally closing on our new (to us) home tomorrow morning, YEAH ! ! ! I would love to get some opinions from the talented people on this board.
My delima is with the kitchen. I have always wanted to paint my kitchen cabinets so that my kitchen would have a "cottage~country" look, but looks as though I won't be able to because my hubby refuses to let me paint solid oak cabinets. I have managed to come to a compromise w/him of painting the center island. That is my first question, will that look "funny" ? The cabinets are a med. stain so they are not real dark, & I was wanting to paint the island a dark green color, sand off in places & then an antique stain over top.
My second ?? is to make it look more "cottage~country" I would like to put up beadboard on the walls, paint them a cream, sand off in places & antique them. I am wanting to cut them taller than the "usual" 32" I have seen them as high as 4' & that is more what I am leaning toward. My husband says it will look dorky, what do you all think ?
Lastly, should I then paint the walls the same green as the island ?
Sorry for all of the questions. We were suppose to close the 15th so everything is really CRAZY right now.
Thanks for any help in advance ;-)
