We have just repainted our bedroom walls and the ensuite just didn't match at all anymore. So one project leads to another and the ensuite needed to be done too!
To paint the walls is one thing but to paint the oak cupboards is another. I have been talking about doing this for a couple of years now. At first DH would just say : No way, those are oak cupboards. I would answer: They'll still be oak cupboards, just a different colour! Most men have this unexplainable fear of painting over anykind of wood. As women, we need to help them get over that fear!
Our cupboards were in a honey oak colour. See the before picture. The walls were in some kind of Dijon yellow...nice at first but I was tired of it.
After a visit to the local paint shop, I was ready to tackle the oak painting project! The cupboards are painted in Cloud white (Benjamin Moore paints). The walls are a dark taupe brown as is the ceiling.
While we were at it, we replaced the handles on doors and drawers and the lights above the mirror as well.
Quite the change, isn't it?
Guess what I will be doing next? The kitchen cupboards. Hubby is all for it now! Maybe I tackle that project this winter. We'll see.
