To Paint or not to Paint....

via Simply Seleta
That is the question.

We have a galley kitchen that really has no wall space for color.  And 4 glass cabinets....hmmmmmm.  Painting the backs of the cabinets might be just the pop we need.  So I have to make a case...because it is going to be a hard sell.

that is the blue cabinet from Lilly Pulitzers new line.


Are you sold? Did I mention it will probably be blue?

Happy Monday!  Let the week begin!

love the idea. I'd even go so far as to say a little pattern would look good there, especially if your dishes are white or glass. you could wrap a little cardboard, cut to fit, with wallpaper and try it there to see if you like it....if not, PAINT!

Forgot to mention that this is for my client's kitchen...I think I am definitely going to paint some cardboard and get it up there for her to see...

Paint it Gretchen! In Sweden they often painted all cabinets inside a nice blue for some reason. It's such a great look!!

Have you thought about painting the back of the cabinets? he he Just kidding! You are talking to the queen of painted bookshelves/cabinets.

Go for it! And enjoy that beautiful blue!!

I am thinking of adding some color to a glass cabinet I have in the kitchen, but I think I will just go with paper that I can easily replace when I get tired of looking at it.
