Today our kitchen island is going from wahhhh to WOW. Or in other words, from boring distressed black to super-chic navy blue. After painting the rest of the cabinets a crisp white, the distressed black looked … shabby. I did a few samples to see which shade of navy was going to be best, using the Benjamin Moore Affinity swatches that Spectrum Paint so graciously sent me. I tried three different colors before we landed on the final version (to be revealed!).
To be honest, all I can see in this photo is the UGLY tumbled stone to-be-replaced backsplash tile – but more on that another time, since it deserves an entire post on its own.
So let’s be inspired instead by some really gorgeous kitchens. And you can get an idea of where we’re heading with this makeover!
And then there’s the navy cabinets – talk about striking. I love how preppy they are against the white cabinets.
I’m so happy we decided to do a pop of color in the kitchen. Is it bold? Absolutely – but the result is going to be stunning.
Can’t wait to show you the rest!
