That might be too much. Kind of looks like the kitchen is in a cave. I understand what you're going for but not sure I like that.




Yea, it's a little dark there, but it's kind of deceptive, due to when I took the picture. It was starting to get dark and I did not have any lights on.

I have an updated picture tonight, which shows it with more light.

Thanks.


If you want to do something, you will find a way.

I agree with Bill. The kitchen is already dark, with no windows back there. The stone on both sides just makes it darker.




Check out the updated picture tonight with more light.

Thanks.

Too small. and you are making it look smaller. Usually prefer to not comment, but now you are getting into the good stuff! show your wife, with and without.




I took her out there tonight, and we've been discussing it. I'll have to take a picture from one of the front seats, as it will tone it down a bit.

Thanks.

I ordered some more Lacquer a couple of days ago from Amazon, as I found it was cheaper than buying it at Lowes. Not sure how they pull that off, since it had to be shipped.

It was only available in quarts.

This is what showed up today.

Not sure why they were all shipped individually, but they were.

That also means a spreadsheet update. The 4 quarts with tax and shipping amounted to $56.95.

Adding that to our prior total of $10,198.79 and our new total is $10,255.74.

Here is the updated manipulated picture.

As I said, it's a little bit deceptive, since it was kind of a close up. I'll take another one from farther back, as it changes the perspective a little.

Sometimes, it looks better to me, other times, just a bit "busy".

I only have enough wallpaper to do the end of the counter on the passenger side, but not the wall. The good news is, the paper is removable, and since the wood is covered with lacquer, there should be no damage when removing it.

Maybe I'll put some up, look at it, and see what the wife thinks, and go from there.

Doing just the counter end would make a different look where it doesn't look like a cave. And yes the lighter picture does make it look better. Also when the kitchen lights are in, it will change the look again.

We like plenty of light, and normally use the "daylight" (or bright), led's, in the range of 5500 to 6000K instead of the warmish look like an incandescent.

Once we get something at the other end of the kitchen, that will also change the look, for the eye.

Like I said, fortunately, if we don't like the looks of it, we can always just pull it off. Some of the stone look will be partly covered up from the counter top down anyway.

Hey, we have to have an "entryway" look coming in, right? Lol.

I got a little dizzy looking at all that stone. I do like the accent wall but surrounded by it...I'm not so sure.
