i guess my problem is that we love the dark wood baseboard and wainscoting (or whatever it is) in the kitchen. But that cabinets do not match the original wood at all. For now i have to (dont have the money) install the cabinets the way they are live with the miss matched cabinets compared to the houses original wood stain.
But i was thinking it might make more sense to tear down the orginal wood paneling and baseboard and buy new paneling and baseboard and stain it to match or kitchen cabs. But doing that means i have to tear out wood, very nice wood that is original to the house.
and the original baseboards are 10" tall and have a very nice profile. It would be rather expensive to match that today
I sort of dont know what to do. I want things to look good,if that means down the road, stripping the cabs and staining them dark to match the orginal wood trim, or tearing out the original wood trim and putting up new to match the new cabs?
And im going to rent a floor sander and use a natural stain on the floors now. I hand sand part of the floor and it looked great. the dark stain i originally wanted needs to go.
