I had to do it.
Remember my kitchen island re-no?
Well, one day the mommy-o strolled into the kitchen and said,
"I told ya wrong-- your island needs to be white."
Thanks, mom. Thanks for the bum-steer towards the antique white. It's all your fault! And I never learned to read!
Not really. I didn't mean it, mom.
So I re-painted the very next day. Stood up, stood back, and went,
It was just so stark, man. That white with the black marble. Whoa. Take a look again:
It just seemed, so. . . harsh. Nude. Severe. Shocking.
And so forth.
And, this just got me to thinking. Now, I done tole ya and tole ya I wanted a white kitchen. Do you remember this? 'Member? I like white? Painting real wood is a total and complete no-no to many people (including the hubs and the daddy-o).
But the starky starkness of that stark marble/island cataclysm had me take a couple steps back.
I'm used to it, now. I stopped pulling a "Kramer" stumble every time I stepped into the ole galley long ago.
Now, looky here:
"No way! That's great! WE LANDED ON THE MOON!" Er, I mean, the floor's clean! Someone document this!
Allow me to show you the changes that have been made to the Cookery in the last few months, okey dokey?
Man. I've been biz-ay.
But, but, are you picking up on a pattern here? Crazy-haired kid picture and nasty stove top arrow aside? All that white.
Now, I get a little sceered when I ask for opinions-- it's like people give their opinions and forget their manners, allatthesametime. Be nice about my kitchen, okay? It has feelings, too! Note to the rude comment givers in the world: Be nice or I will have to F-word you up.
(Note: "F" refers to "flick", as in, "I will 'flick' your forehead." But you knew that already.)
So here's where I just must crave some input. This is a hot-button topic. This is a life-changing question. It's personal. Children are written out of wills for this. Families never speak to each other again over this kind of thing:
IS WHITE A FAD THAT WILL BE OUT IN 5 YEARS OR LESS?
WILL WE ALL REGRET PAINTING OUR CABINETS???
