This *WAS* the bar area right off my living room. Personally, I think it was absolutely beautiful. The wood was super high quality and the detail is amazing. It was completely gorgeous.
Some young, know it all, 20 year old designer came in and said, “yuck, too old fashioned! Paint it!”
Then a day later we walked back in, and they had painted it. I cried. We still bought the house, but demanded that they STOP painting all the woodwork in the house immediately and leave.
That is what it looks like now ^^^. It is really flat looking, and no character. We have had multiple bids on having the wood stripped and it is outrageous. PLUS every painter said you will never get all the paint off and it would not look good. So I am stuck. Over the Christmas break I am going to do SOMETHING to it…. I am thinking repaint with some glaze or maybe a two tone paint job??
This is where I need help! Does anyone have any suggestions??
What do you think of the two tone cabinets? Would it look good in a bar area? What colors would you use? I am not afraid of color, in fact I love a little color pop! Maybe a teal on the bottom and cream on the top? Or Red? Or do it all in a darker brown?? Should I distress it and make it look old? HELP!
This is standing back to give you an idea of what the entire area looks like. * please ignore all the school stuff, the kids just got home and dropped everything!!
Please help me out and tell me what you think!
