That sounds wonderful. One more question: Are the dark cabinets sealed or is it possible to lighten them?

Well, I was thinking that they would not ever match (nor do they need to) but my tendency would be to soften the difference. Not being there to walk around and in and out with thought I can't say how I would do that but in considering the wonderful beetle kikt walls, I would make every effort to enhance that feeling rather than contrast with it. In that regard, and considering your wonderful plans for counter tops that will do that already, I can offer some ideas.

First, I will qualify by saying, with some long interest in primative antiques, I am attracted to rather dull milk paint finishes (where grain shows through). This would be really attactive if you could pick-up the blue-green mottling of the walls.

That's why I asked if the dark ones could be lightened (even light stripping would open the grain to accept tones). The nice thing is with a milk paint rubbed finish, it would not matter if all were matched in color or depth so much as in technique.

This might sound WAYYY overboard to you and it would likely involve more work than just trying to match the stain or paint everything with latex, but I think the result could be immpecable.

Jamie the wood in the laundry room is aspen not blue pine:smily: I too like the old milk paint look .. that what I ment when I said paint and make them all look old ... im sure in time this is what I will endup doing Thumbs up
but it will wait a while as I have some work that needs to be done on our mobile so it doesn't start falling down around our ears Thumbs down
fix a few boards, calk, powerwash & paint before the winter rains start ... it never ends ...
Jamie how are all your repaires going?
