Have you ever wanted something for a really long time, but you let your husband (or anyone) talk you out of it???? Well, I have wanted painted and glazed cabinets for about 15 years now. Yikes, I am getting old :) In that time we built 3 new houses and each time it was about resale value. You know, was it just a trend that would not be a good selling point. (Imagine that painted cabinets would keep someone from buying a house, Really?) Each kitchen was lovely in all of the houses and we never had a problem with resale.
However, the problem came when we moved into my grandparents' house and we remodeled the kitchen. Again, I was persuaded to go with cherry cabinets because of the richness that it would add to 1970's ranch home.
Well, now 5 years later, I really wish I would have gone with my gut and ordered the glazed cabinets. I have been wanting to paint them for about 3 years now, but my husband just was not keen on that idea. I guess I kind of understand since they were new and well constructed cabinets after all, last year I even went and bought the supplies, but chickened out.
So I am really contemplating painting them, with my husbands OK this time :)
What do you think? Do you have another solution that may work? Any suggestions?
