I love your kitchen! I'm about to remodel and we are using Precision Cabinets. Can you tell me if you used one of their stock colors or if you used your own paint color? Thank you!

I love the look of this kitchen. The bar table really catches my attention, and is a great centerpiece to the entire kitchen. I particularly like the wicker chairs, that is such a unique idea!
