This kitchen has taught this wife compromise. Never before in my married life has my husband had an opinion,given advice or input on how I have decorated our home in any way whatsoever. So what do I do when I began this kitchen remodel? Asked his opinion. Guess what? He had one!! Wrong time to ask as now I am learning compromise. Now don’t get me wrong. In many areas of our 18 years of marriage I have compromised but not in my precious design for the home. So what have I compromised on?
I wanted painted heirloom white cabinets with mocha glaze.
He wanted stained wood. Guess what we have?
I wanted white bead board as backsplash and 3/4ths of the way up the wall with a chair rail.
He didn’t. I now once again refer you to the picture above.
BUT do you remember who said, “Hey honey let’s remodel the kitchen with my overtime funds!” ? That would be my baby of 18 years..
Compromise… I hope to live with it for 18 years times 8.
