RE,: small progress..and question about cream colored cabinets (Follow-Up #18)

val, actually my hope is to be out of here in a few yrs. It was one of those "3 yr plan" kind of homes :) Bought with the intention to sell this yr, in fact. But, the market is so bad..there's no way right now.
But, I want to enjoy being here if I'm "stuck". Because the few yrs could very well turn into 10 at this rate.
So, I have to worry some about resale. I was worried about it a lot when I started making changes. Now, my give a hoot factor isn't REAL high, lol. But, I'm trying to be as neutral as possible.
We've put in the backsplash, changed out the counter. And last thing to do is paint the cabs. Buying new appliances just isn't money I want to invest in this place. Not only that, I'm not the biggest fan of SS. Especially with the tile floor. With hardwood, yes. But, changing both just isn't an option.
I also love BM dove white. But, I've been trying to come up with something that wasn't "stark" (b&w) or "sterile" (all the white of light cabs, subway, floor, appliances)

Here's another one I saw that I'm diggin' right now.
