Bead board in the cabinets: Choosing a color

It's not as easy as it seems. [Of course, this is coming from someone who tends to make everything hard, but that is another topic all together!]

But truly, there is something daunting about picking out paint, especially for certain projects. You know, the kind where you want it to be *perfect*. For some reason, every project in my kitchen renovation has fallen into this category. Actually, if I were to be totally and completely honest, everything in my life falls into this category...but please tell me that there is someone else out there who agonizes over paint colors like this!

It all started very innocently:

I put bead board on the inside back of our upper kitchen cabinets, and painted them the same pistachio green that I painted the wall. It was exactly what I wanted.

Until I started thinking that I needed a white paint color on the walls instead, which I repainted a creamy white hue. And maybe I would have left the bead board like it was, but then when I painted our kitchen floor, I chose this very grayish green color:

I wasn't sure it matched the light green, but I chose it because it was the completely right color for our floor. [I know this is true, because the countless other samples I tried were not the right ones.] And I loved the way it looked, and David agreed.

Just one problem~ the clash between it and the pistachio was giving me a headache.

So we went from this:

(Cabinet by stove; first green)

To this:

(Cabinet by sink; new green)

To this:

(Cabinet with things inside of it again! Yea!)

This picture shows the floor color better, and a little bit of the cabinet by the sink. No more clashing now! :)

(Picture disclaimer: I still haven't sewn a sink skirt, and I left the drawer open because the drawer front was freshly painted!)

In the end, I realized the grayish green on the floor would work for the bead board. And if I want to repaint it someday, I can. Besides, the floor is technically a temporary fix anyway!

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and listening to my ramblings! I hope your week is going well! Oh, and if you haven't entered our giveaway, be sure to check it out here!

Have a beautiful day!

It really looks great! We painted every room in our old house. We went with a grouping (Craftsman from Eddie Bauer) from Lowes so it was easy to pick all of the colors. The house we live in now was already painted earth tones which we love. Hopefully we won't be bored with it anytime soon!

I LOVE it! It is hard to choose a color, I have been 'ailing' for weeks! I really love this pale gray, Swedish look, as in your kitchen, and this:
But I REALLY want this:

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Jenni, this is beautiful, and I love the red accents with it. I liked the other color, but I know what you mean, it felt kind of like one leg was on the sidewalk while the other was in the grass, lol!

I love your cabinets, and your floor! I want to change one of my cabinets to an open style...yours is a perfect inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I look forward to reading more of yours!

I love how it turned out! Even though at first I thought you should keep the other green, now that I've seen it in person, I think it looks fantastic! Great job!

Здравствуйте уважаемы читатели данного форума! У меня в семье такая проблема. С мужем мы разошлись, но не в разводе. Брак хочу сберечь.Поэтому для меня важно наладить отношения с родителями мужа. Изначально ,я им понравилась, относились ко мне хорошо, буквально каждый день с улыбкой встречали. Но прожив какое-то время, я стала в них развосхищаться, т.е. мне показалось, что они фальшивят, кроме всего прочего много было ситуаций. После такого, как с мужем мы разбежались, вся его семья отвернулась от меня. Я никогда с ними не ругалась, никогда грубого слова не говорила им. Старалась выглядеть в их глазах достойно. Но в последствии такого как благоверный ушел, его отец сказал мне по телефону, что он буквально каждый день был против нашего брака. Для меня это был шок. Как человек мог притворятся 3 года? До сих пор тяжело в это поверить. С его мамой у меня отношения никакие.
Посоветуйте, как можно наладить отношения? Они живут за 300 км от меня. И общаться со мной вообще не хотят. Плюнуть на это не могу, т.к. есть веские причины. Они на нас с мужем делают постоянные рассорки, наводят любую чепуху, и быть может в следствии этого мы все никак не можем помириться
