Black is Back - I'm Inspired

Happy Monday!  It seems everywhere I look these days, I'm seeing black in interiors and I'm loving it.  Especially in kitchens!  I looked through my inpiration photos on my computer and was amazed at how many of them have black cabinets or black framed windows and doors.  Here's what I mean:

Tons of black and white in Nate Berkus' new NYC apartment, check out the video tour in this link(sorry, couldn't find a pic, but had to share!)

Lastly, just by chance, I flipped through some old House and Home mags and found this photo from its Oct. 2010 issue.  LOVE the black framed glass cabinets!

Now the real question is.. .will I have the guts to do the same to my white cabinets that are perfectly fine?

I can risk painting $5 thrift store chairs, but this takes real confidence and commitment.  I know I'd love the finished product, but... not sure how to best execute it.  Any tips?  Have you painted your kitchen cabinets?

Just found your blog. Love it! I love the look of black kitchen cabinets & have been going back & forth between black or white for two years now. There's something about black, it's so cool & classy. I'm afraid to commit because it such a huge thing! So play it safe w/white or go for it w/black? I even took a pic of my kitchen & uploaded it onto Sherwin Williams site & "painted" in white then black. It's really fear holding me back. I so want to do this project this winter.

Love your blog!
