    What would EVER possess someone to do that to cabinets? Did she/he really think that would look good? Does anyone think that looks good?!

    It looks like a can of dog food exploded.

    Or a skin rash!

    Kind of sad–they put so much time and effort into making something look so ugly. they should’ve stopped with the plain background!

    those are really bad. there is no accounting for taste.

    Simply ghastly. The kitchen seems clean and orderly otherwise.

    Sponge paint… not even once.

    Lordy bajordy someone has absolutely no talent when it comes to sponge painting, and nobody in the family has the guts to tell them to cease and desist.

    I myself would only lightly tinge the edges of the doors/drawers with this colour to give it an aged look; this DOES look like a dog food explosion (great visual btw).

    Looks like a murder took place.
    Were they trying to simulate a marbled look?

    I have those cabinets. they are stock 60’s cabinets and are a very glossy beautiful wood. I can’t imaginge doing that to them.

    PLEASE tell me the people who are responsible are either in “fashion jail”…or blind?
    When someone said “dog food explosion”, I was thinking more like “diaper explosion”…and “murder scene” is pretty darn close too!
    You don’t sponge paint cabinets like that…you change the hardware, or you put glass fronts on them…or you TOTALLY paint them one solid (dark?) color AND change hardware AND put glass fronts on them…please people, the next time you get an idea to paint something…go lie down…then call a decorator.

    Anyone ever heard of the dirty protest in Northern Ireland during the 1970s when IRA prisoners refused to perform prison tasks such as slopping out their cells (it was a protest to claim political status as POWs) Anyway they would take their own excrement and smear it on the walls of their cells – Looks something like this kitchen…

    Why is it people almost always think they can sponge paint by just slapping a paint dipped sponge on wall?? There is so much more to the technique. Results like this road kill mess are the reason people shy away from it.
