Reveal: Kitchen Island Painted

Hi friends,

The kitchen island has been painted. As you may recall, it used to look like this:

The fire engine red had to go. Originally, I wanted to paint it navy. The trouble was it would look like the American flag with the red stove knobs, blue island, and white cupboards. I plan to buy new stove knobs but it will set me back a few hundred dollars and I would rather put that money towards other items right now.

I also considered wood paneling but I couldn't figure out what to do with the drawers.

And then I thought about a steel grey color but I worried it would be too dark with the black counter top.

So....I decided to play it safe and paint the island the same color as the cupboards: a creamy white:

What do you think? Eventually I may change it up but given the amount of effort required to re-paint it will be in the very distant future.

I leave you today with this amusing item:

Thanks for stopping by!
