{Painted Cabinets}

Well, my pictures are a bit mixed up...wanted the before pics. first and after pics. last...but that's alright. This pic. is one taken still in progress.
I was sick of looking at the orange-ish cabinets, so I painted them. I also took all of the hardware off and spray painted them "hammered silver".

You can see in this pic. that the cabinets on the left are NOT painted yet...this was just so you could see the "makeover". Don't they look cleaner?...well, I think they do. I lined the white cabinets in black and white toile (just the bottoms of the shelves of course).


Painted, but not completely ready in this picture. They are completely finished now and look much happier and the hardware looks brand spankin new! Unfortunately my camera is not showing how much better they look, but in real life they do look much nicer.
I have so much more to post and I MUST show you how much better our master bedroom looks w/ before and after photos.
I don't know if you can tell in the last photo, but I put a glaze on the white paint to make them look a bit worn. I needed to do this b/c the counter top looked "dirty" against the plain white cabinets. I would like to paint the white walls in the bathroom, but I just don't know what color to use. I'm fresh out of ideas. Feel free to give me some color advice.
Would you leave the walls white or paint them?

Your cabinets look great, Katy! I am clueless as to what color you should paint the walls. I would leave them white... but that's just me. I am sure whatever you decide will look fabulous!

The cabinets look great. I would def. paint the walls but I can't see enough in the photos to suggest a color. I think I see light blue tiles?

Very nice! Great job! I really need to work on my bathroom too.

Hmmmm...generally I do like color on my walls (may be cause hubby always wants them just plain white...)and with the white cabinets a little color would set them off. It's a little harder since you have the blue tiles (which I like). So maybe an off-white or a with just a hint of the blue?
