Oh dear.

My friend has the subway tiles from Home Depot installed in her laundry room & last night she suggested we hold up the Ikea door up to the tiles to see how it looked. Oh my. I'm a bit baffled at how it can look ok on my kitchen table laid out but when I see it like this, the door looks VERY yellow. I do appreciate that the lighting is different than in our kitchen but the significant difference in colour is bothering me. 

So here is where I'm at now. I have three options. 1. I'm can find a different backsplash that isn't white subway tile 2. I consider painting the Ikea cabinet doors a brighter white or 3. I could assume that my cabinets with the Home Depot tile will look different in my house than it does in her basement. Well, it's back to the drawing board for a little bit to work through this.

I went through the same thing! I have the home depot tiles (LOVE.. And a great deal) and cabinets that "looked bright white" until they were paired together. I just took the cabinet doors off, grabbed some bright white durable cabinet specific paint and painted JUST the doors. It looks fabulous, saved money in all the right places and does not in any way look like a "I cut corners" kitchen. It also gave me the courage to paint our lower cabinets a contrasting beautiful navy/ grey color!
Go with your gut. Hey if anything try out white paint on your sample door you have now. If anything. It was just the loss of one door.

I have subway tiles from saltillo that are a bit antiqued and crackled. they look great with my off white cabinets. Take a look there maybe.

You should get more than 1 tile from home depot to check out in your kitchen. It may not be big enough to get a true colour of how it will look installed.

And check at various times through the day as the light changes.

I have this nice yellowy cream paint in my bath in the day and its yucky green at night.

Hi! I was interested to know if setting up a blog website such your own:
http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=4606682639023284446&postID=101657036471199023 is difficult to do for inexperienced people?
I've been hoping to create my own blog for a while now but have been turned off mainly because I've always assumed it demanded tons of work.
What do you think? Thankyou

Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a
sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm
thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for first-time blog writers? I'd really appreciate
it.

First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Cheers!

Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm going to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe
you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.

Maybe you could space it out better?

Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to

The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.

Hi. I noticed your website title, "Blogger: Aubrey & Lindsay's Little House Blog" doesn't really reflect the content of your web site. When writing your blog title, do you believe it's best to write it for
Search engine optimisation or for your audience? This is something I've been battling with due to the fact I want great search rankings but at the same time I want the best quality for my website visitors.
