Need you - Do these go okay?
Hi everyone. I am asking you practical folks at the small house forum first, but I DO want your honest opinions. Do not be afraid to tell me "No Nancy, don't do it!"
I have been hanging out in the Green Demolitions website, where they sell gently-used kitchens. Since I am in Michigan and they are in NY, PA, CT, and NJ, I would have to ship them to me. But sometimes the savings are enough.
They have two kitchens right now, one in PA and once in NY that I want to put together. One is frosted/bleached oak with shaker style doors and the other is washed maple with 45 degree framed doors. Just like idie2live was working on with her bead-boarded doors. Do you think that:
1.) the two kitchens match well enough to use the cabs all mishmashed together? (Like a cab from one set sitting between cabs from the other set?) Or,
2.) you would use them in a room together, but keep the cabs from the two sets together, perhaps across the room from each other, Or,
3.) you might use the sets together, but you would add whitewash to the sets to get them looking alike, or even paint them. Or,
4.) I would rather pay 5 times the $1100 cost to get real cabs made for the kitchen, even if I had to wait a few years to do it.
First, here is the oak, a display from a cab store:
