Extreme Makeover Results

Previously, the cabinets were the same color as the door to the right of the refrigerator.

Lon's kitchen cabinet makeover is complete.  Cream-colored cabinets are now black.

My first reaction to Lon's makeover suggestion was NOT "Oh sure, I love that idea."  As usual, I hesitated at the idea of change and this promised to be a major one.  I decided to just get out of the way and to let him go ahead with his plan.  (Should I be concerned that I gave in so easily?)           

It will take some getting used to but so far so good.  Since Lon is a professional painter and decorator, if we decide we aren't happy with black, he can repaint.

These are the same cabinets that were put in when we built our home in 1972.  The cabinets themselves are nothing to brag about but changing the color frequently keeps us happy.

Hmmm...if we decide to stay with the black cabinets, I'm not sure I like the floor anymore.  Uh oh!!

GULLY: Thanks. Lon loves to decorate our home and he has pretty darn good taste. Once in a while, I won't agree with his ideas but most of the time we're on the same page.
