I tried painting just the cabinet box green and leaving the doors cream (both with the same brown glaze) but that looked a little weird to me. So, I painted the frames of the doors green and that seemed perfect to me. One down, eight more to go. Good thing I don't mind painting :-) I also sponge painted the backsplash. It's in lighter shades of my accent wall behind the china hutch. In the end I decided that all my stencils were too busy. For now, I'll just put them aside until I find the perfect project for them.
