Kitchen Cabinets

Now my house is a Lockwood which is a house designed by a Dutchman who lives here in Rotorua
These houses are completely made of wood inside and out. Almost on the lines of a log cabin.
I just love wood and am one of those people who has to feel it with my hands all the time.

I remember going to a Wood carving exhibition and standing next to a stall of items for sale,
 all the time feeling, smoothing and touching the exhibits , when the chap who was selling  them said
 " I can see you love wood, by the way you need to feel it"
I am obviously a tactile person with a need to touch and smooth wood........... But I digress.....

Now the kitchen is painted egg shell blue, I love the colour blue but not in the house I feel it is a cold colour and the kitchen needs lifting.. it needs a warm colour and also a lighter colour to add light to the room as it is an internal area, so has no windows.

So today a painter came to give me an estimate to paint
 the cabinets a warm stone / cream colour

I had considered doing it myself but the more I look at it
and see the 24 drawer fronts and cupboard doors back
and front the more I have put off starting...
So I have finally asked a few painters for a quote to do the job.
So watch this space as they say !!
