What I like and don't like.

In trying to decide what color to paint our kitchen cabinets,
I've been going through decorating magazines.
Sure there are LOTS of pretty kitchens out there, and I know what I like.

I also know what I don't like.....please forgive me if you want a pink kitchen.

I really could not face this kitchen several times a day. All I see is Pepto Bismol.
The woman who owns this kitchen is probably a very nice person. Some things I just know.

Then I came across this gem:

Wouldn't this be the sweetest way to grow up.....all snuggled between siblings?
I wonder though how long it would take these little guys to make their bed each morning...
or if it would even be possible.

Then I worry about the parents raising this baby. 
Something just feels so wrong about this "nursery"
like they are 'fitting' the baby into their lives....and just barely.

Then we have something that has nothing to do with decorating, unless you're making a cake.

You get to try a little bit without disturbing the masterpiece.
Can't you just picture a little child waiting by that oven door for a nibble?

I agree with everything you said. I love that cake pan.

Personally I've yet to see painted kitchen cabinets that didn't look like well, painted kitchen cabinets. I am not a fan. Stain yes, paint no.
Just my opinion...

I sort of like the pink kitchen...I don't know why. And that nibble cake pan is a clever idea.

I bet those beds stayed made like that once only... for the picture. Making all three beds would be hard for even an adult to do! Why not have all the kids in the same bed so they can snuggle up and get warm? That's the way they did it in the old days. And only one bed to make.

I agree with Robin. I wouldn't care for painted cupboards for me. I'm a stain person I guess. I love the idea of the nibble pan. And that nursery looks a little depressing to me, but everyone has their own tastes.

They have paint now that looks like wood after it is on. I can't tell the difference. By just staining you still have the same wood grain which I'm wanting to change.

I wish you could see Brock and Erin's cabinets.....they are painted and beautiful!

I thought that's what bunk beds were for--so everyone had their own space. And then there would actually be room in that room.

Also, some people are geniuses. That cake pan is awesome!

The fun of a nibble is to eat it out of te big cake...besides, wouldn't that little nibble piece be overdone?

Rebecca said...

ha that's funny that little cake on the side! A good idea though I think

Sue said...


The baby cake is funny.


PS. And no dice on the pink kitchen!

Thinking more about it... I only like the picture of the pink kitchen, but I wouldn't want to live in it. I once got nauseous just sitting in a pink church.

PS: Did you see Jenni Mills fb page today? She posted her painted cabinets & NEW granite countertops. She saved 9 years for her kitchen updating!
