Houzz is the new way to design your home.
To antique/distress or not?
May 9, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are building and our kitchen is u-shaped. Part of the "u" is a peninsula or snack bar which will have pecky cypress legs. While stained cabinetry is our preference, we originally wanted just this bar to have an antique white or black finish to give contrast to the pecky posts/legs. Our builder and painter both feel we can't only paint the peninsula because the transition from paint to stain would look odd. Their recommendation is either paint all lower cabinets OR stain everything OR paint everything. Thoughts? This would be easier if it were a stand-alone island.
