I'll never understand the appeal of a washer and dryer in the kitchen. I don't want people's dirty clothes in my kitchen and I don't want my clean clothes exposed to cooking smells.

Dura Supreme Cabinetry - that is GORGEOUS! I love that the piece draws your eye to it, so that you then notice the lovely backsplash and the island stool. It's a beautiful complement to the rest of the room, and adds some warmth.

I have just acquired (for free!!) two lovely end tables - a standard one-drawer one and a drop-leaf one. They're a really (really) dark wood, and I can hardly wait to get them painted. There are some things I would never paint just because the wood itself is too beautiful to cover, but those are the exceptions for me. I'm not a huge fan of the antiqued look, but I do like a good, creative use of multiple colors like different colored drawer fronts if the colors don't fight one another. For folks a little afraid of paint, there is also the option of removable wallpaper - basically, peel and stick. I'm doing our stairs now - the treads will stay natural wood, and the risers will be papered.

Katy Jordan - Thank you! Your project sounds fun! Will you plan to post photos of the end table when you are done? Mandi @ Dura
