First off, I've gotta say - you guys have great style! Some of the pics I've seen on this site blow me away! Soooo, I'm hoping that someone out there has some advice for me!
I bought my first house 4 months ago, and have been loving the chance to decorate something of my own! It's been going pretty well, but the one eyesore (to me at least) is my kitchen. My living area is fairly small, and open concept, so when I'm sitting in the living room, I have to look at european-style melamine cabinets (with the oak strip on them) - and the more I look at them, the more they bug me!
I see that there are several threads asking if the oak strip on the bottom of european-style melamine cabinets can be painted out - and I'm happy to see the answer is yes. But, I can't seem to find any pictures of the finished cabinets. Is anybody willing to post their "after" pictures for me? I'm also thinking that once they're painted, I could put some long, sleek looking handles horizontally along the oak strip as a bit of a camoflage.
What do you think?
