I made a New Years Resolution for DIY Network that I was going to attempt to modernize and update our existing kitchen over the course of the year. I already painted the ceiling and over the beige wallpaper and updated some of the electrical switches, but painting the cabinets is going to be the biggest and most impacting of all of the upgrades. I get a lot of mixed reviews when I mention this to friends in person – paint the hardwood doors, no! – but I think it would be a totally different story if the base of the cabinets had been left hardwood… right now, it’s duo-toned, and needs something more drastic to bring it to a point that it’ll flow with the rest of our home’s brightened design.
That’s where Photoshop came into play; thank goodness for Pete, and his ability to make me a fully-editable template using an existing photograph so that I could play with every feasible color combination and get a better sense of what will work, what doesn’t seem to work, and experiment with visualizing combinations I never would have imagined. I let Julia play with the tools in Photoshop too, which immediately meant rainbow kitchen.
I’m pretty excited about the combinations that we’re narrowing down between – there is definitely one that we keep gravitating towards (guess?). Have a look at all of the options in this post on Made + Remade, and weigh in with your own thoughts over there!
