Iwanna Wednesday

Iwanna Wednesday is back!!!! Sorry I left you hanging last week with my technical difficulties. But without further's what Iwanna this week!

I've been thinking of painting my kitchen cabinets. I don't have any really good pictures, but here you can see a little bit of them while William finishes cooking. I think he was helping me make Scalloped Potatoes and Ham. William is my son's best friend and he is currently serving his country in the United States Army and I'm very proud of him.

Here's another shot of my kitchen cabinets, except this time my son is cooking! He's baking brownies as dessert for the Scalloped Potatoes and Ham dinner :0) And please overlook the stray tortilla just sitting there on the counter. Not sure how that got there. The boy was probably making himself a burrito or something :-)

So as you can see, my kitchen cabinets are ok, but I've been wondering if I should paint them white to kind of brighten up my kitchen. So I did what I usually do, is I went window shopping in the Mall of the Worldwide Web aka the Internet!

And I got so involved in lusting after the pictures that I'm about to show you that I forgot just to look for plain old white painted cabinets. Here are pictures of some of the most beautiful and unique kitchens I have ever seen, Iwanna any and all of these.

Hot Tamales!!! Wow, is this kitchen hot? I love it. Not sure that I would have the guts to choose a color like this. But I do love it and I know my mom would love it, her favorite color being red. Don't those yellow lemons look great in this kitchen?

Here's an open kitchen with no cabinets at all. This kitchen may be even gutsier than the red one because you would have to maintain the order on the shelves or it would be total chaos! But I do love how open it is, how bright and I love the bead board. What do you think? Would you like everything in your cabinets out in the open for everyone to see?

How about the island on this one? I would have to get more friends so that I would have enough people to sit around this massive island. But it wouldn't be too hard if I offered margaritas and chips and salsa. Any takers?

You know what I liked about this one? Not the warm yellow color, but the little nook that holds those adorable little teapots. Someone in this home must truly love their tea!

Are these not the most gorgeous glass front cabinets ever? I love them and the rest of the kitchen as well.
I don't think I would ever want to cook anything in this next kitchen for fear of dirtying it. Isn't it fabulous? I love the way the island is set and the detailing around the sink. I know there's a term for it, but I just can't think of it now. The only think that comes to mind is alcove, but I don't think that's it. Anyone?

I don't think I would want this next kitchen, but it was so unique that I just had to share it with you. This is made of Burl Wood. Isn't it beautiful? It almost looks like marble.

And here's one Iwanna really bad. It's one of my favorites. I love the brightness and the openness and the color of all the items on the glass shelving.

And this one takes my breath away. . .isn't it breathtaking? I guess that's why it takes your breath away right? Can't you just imagine cooking for the upcoming holidays in this kitchen?

Well that's it for this weeks Iwanna Wednesday. What things do you find yourself wanting for your home or yourself...Iwanna's don't have to settle, we can Iwanna anything and everything!


  1. Hi Alicia,

    These are all great kitchens. I really like the first one and the third one, oh and the one that is really dainty that you wouldn't want to dirty up. That one is really pretty.

    Iwanna tear out all my carptet and get hardwood floors. I have stains all up and down. I paid $120 about a month ago to get them cleaned and it didn't do any good at all.

    Iwanna add some color to my walls, but fear putting the wrong color on.

    Iwanna clear out all my clutter and feel like I live in a nice relaxing retreat.

    I have a lot of wannas.. probably way too many to list here.

    Iwanna buy a house in Tennessee.

  2. Wow, I looove these kitchens! Although I am not a big fan of open cabinet kitchens. We just built our home 4 years ago, and there are things that I would like to change, lol!


  3. Your kitchen looks OK, just replace the green color with off white or cream to brighten up the room.
