Option #3: Do I paint this wall? Again there is a shelf, and archway, but it also extends above the shelf in the kitchen. We also have this icky Oak hutch. I like the idea of a Hutch, but Hate the color of it. So do I paint the Hutch Black? Has anyone ever painted Oak? Is that a bad idea. You can see my kitchen cabinets are the same color of the hutch. They are cheap and also very icky fake wood. So do I paint them and add hardware?? I know that would be a HUGE job, but I think I could handle it. Can they be painted? I have no idea about anything. I don't even know where to start, but I need to break out of my beige world. Please Help! I know tons of you have a good eye and have painted your own homes. So I really need some advice. Leave a comment and let me know what you think. It can be a long comment, I don't care. Keep in Mind, I HAVE to paint the 1st wall that I talked about, weather it be the same color, or a different one. Ok.....now put on your thinking cap and tell me what you would do.

I Need Painting Advice
Ok, we've been living in our little house for over three years now. Since then, we've added two kids. Making a total of three. With our children, we've also discovered the art of "wall drawings" and hand smears. No amount of washable markers and washable crayons will stop them from getting into the "unwashables". You can't see it in the pictures, but I promise....they are there. So here's where I need advice. My house is pretty much completely beige inside. Carpets, walls and ceiling are all the same. We were going to keep it this way, to make it more "sale-able", but since that is not going to happen for us for quite some time, I think I need to make a change. The walls are GROSS and need paint...so....this 1st Picture to the right is the worst wall of all. It is also the 1st thing you see when you come into our house. Do I paint it the same color or give it some color? The problem with this wall is that it connects to the upper shelf. So if I paint it a color, do I just try to maintain a straight line, and paint the FACE of it? Either way, this wall needs paint.
