Good Questions: What to Do with This Kitchen?

Dear AT,

This is a two-part question. The kitchen is painted a burnt pumpkin. The cabinets and flooring are a light honey maple. The kitchen table is a light oak (almost the same color as the maple floors/cabinets.) Hubby says there is no point purchasing a new table while the kids are still in the major destruction phase of life (boys – ages 2,6 and 8.) That makes sense…but the cabinets/floor/table all seem to blend together into blah…

Should I stain the table dark chocolate, to match the window treatments and hardware…or leave it? We also need new chairs for the table – so another option would be to leave the table as is and purchase some brown leather chairs.

Thoughts????

(PS. Try to ignore the green counters…we do.)

Finally, should I paint the breakfast nook area the same pumpkin color? If I do, won’t the panels on the slider be lost – since they are precisely the same color? The off-white color it is now carries into the family room, which it opens in to.

What do you think, AT readers??

Thanks,
Wistroms
