Project: The lower kitchen cabinets

I love my kitchen. It’s as close to perfect as I could have hoped for. I’ve always wondered why on earth anyone would have ripped out those charming old windowpane cabinets they put in the older houses. When we stepped into our 1927 bungalow for the first time, I was absolutely giddy to find a set still intact and in such a wonderful color.

But here’s the situation…back in the day, they didn’t account for newfangled contraptions like dishwashers and garbage compactors, so the old set of lower cabinets got hacked up and eventually replaced with new. One of my winter projects is to find a color that compliments the upper deck. Maybe that’s a cream…maybe it’s a darker green of the same value…I don’t know, but I sure would love some suggestions. Any ideas?

We’ll tackle the Zbrick back splash another day.
