Writing has not come easy this week so I have abstained. It’s not that I don’t have things to write about~ there are many, just not getting the content and “meat” that I want.
So, I will start this week on the lighter side of things. We bought this house last fall with lots of oak..it was built mid-90’s.
Saskatchewan farmers LOVE their oak!! I hate oak. Okay, well hate might be a strong word but it is not even in my top 5 choices for trim and cabinets. So, here we are in this house where every bathroom has oak cabinetry, the kitchen is full of it, the banister, all trims and doors……ugh.
I want to paint~ I’m GOING to paint!
My husband is cautious though. He thinks for resale(if we should ever need to) I may scare people away. I’m saying, “What people??” The only people buying acreages in Sask right now are Albertans under 40….hey that’s me!! And we don’t like oak.
In the kitchen I have decided on black…yes , BLACK!
In the living room there is a large mantle and fireplace~ all oak. I want to paint it a creamy white and lighten up the walls with a buttery yellow. So, here’s the question~ What do YOU all think of me painting the oak in our house? Good idea or not?
