You go girl! You did a great job. I'm a decorator and I'm always impressed with people's design ingenuity.  I love the turquoise chairs.  I moved from an all white kitchen to an older kitchen with medium brown 1980's cabinets.  Hmm, what to do? 

Turquoise!  

This color does wonders with brown.  Dishtowels, jars, decorative thingies, pictures.  My Dad had taken some color photos and framed them.  He had them in his den sitting on the floor and he gave them to me.  Orange and turquoise colors in them.  Did wonders. I'll post the pics later.

Best of luck!  I see a doggie.

Feel better real soon. [smiley-talk017][smiley-talk017]

I'd forgotten you were a decorator, Brogan. I wish you could advise us! I love turquoise but it has to be just right, doesn't it? I was just looking at Susan's lovely earrings in the photo you posted on the nominations thread - that kind of turquoise is so beautiful. Please do post your photos!

Thanks all for your encouraging comments.The sun is shining today. Even though it is freezing outside, I will not need any central heating. My kitchen and living room are South facing, which is kinda cool and hot at the same time.

Is not it great to have a decorator aboard [smile] [smile].

When I have access to my pictures again I will post some more.

I love the white cabinets.  Are they new or did you paint the old ones?

How was it done?

I had the old ones painted by a professional painter. It is a lot of work which also requires patience. He took the cabinet doors with him to do them at home. I had never tried anything like it before, but it is certainly possible to do it yourself. I am thinking about painting a small hall cabinet myself. I still have not chosen a color yet.
