Fall is the best time for decorating at our house because all the colors in the house have a decidedly "yellowish" cast to them. Have I mentioned I dislike yellowish?
I dream of painting this vintage cabinet something other than yellow. When I asked what color recently, some said leave it as is while others agreed it needed a change.
To give you an idea of the whole yellowish thing, here's a picture of the kitchen taken when we were thinking of buying the house. By the way, that unfinished cement floor was terrible to walk on!
The wall and upper cabinet colors are pretty much right. The island color looks a little pink in the picture for some reason, which is not how they are in real life. Here's a close up of the island in this picture.
After we bought the house, we added wood flooring to cover up those ugly brown, unfinished, cement floors. The builder reduced the price of the house by $30K because he wanted to sell it as-is, without finishing the floors. Looking back, I wouldn't buy a house that way again.
Adding dramatic colors around the yellowish cabinets seem to help tone down the yellow. I've dreamed of having the cabinets painted white, but we're planning to sell the house this year so that's out.
While ruminating about painting the vintage cabinet, I noticed Katie over at Let's Add Sprinkles just painted her kitchen cabinets white...not once...but twice.
The first white color came out too yellowish for her. It made me happy to see someone take on their yellowy cabinets and win! If you're planning on painting your cabinets take a look at her post HERE.

Katie is a busy woman. She's organizing and hosting the Fall In Love With Texas blog tour coming up in early October, along with painting all her cabinets and stuff. I love a woman who gets things done. Meanwhile, I'm back to ruminating on that yellow.
Thanks for dropping by!
