Even though we finished our kitchen renovation a few years ago, it is always a work in progress. Recently we went for a paint change to update the space. I had been back and forth between colors. I think sometimes even though paint is cheap, it’s hard to make the commitment, because no one wants to get done painting and then hate it and have to do it all over again. I’ve learned since then to paint swatches on the wall and sit on colors for a while (not just pick and paint and start painting.). Which is exactly what I did this time around and I am so happy I did because it’s such a bright kitchen wall color.
I loved the original color, Bennington Gray,but I was ready for something a little lighter and cooler. After painted several swatches and realizing that I was really looking for a color in between.
I ended up doing a custom mix of colors by blending Tapestry Beige and Coastal Fog with a little bit of white. I adore our bright kitchen wall color. I knew the island didn’t work for us. It was too narrow and since the top had been painted, you can see how it kept peeling. Then, I kept repainting and it was a viscous cycle.
I found this vintage work bench at the flea market and knew it was perfect! Once we swapped out the islands I was really happy and it became my a totally love it moment for me. It works so well with the new bright kitchen wall color. Our next project is sprucing up the downstairs bathroom. I am so excited to be starting. It’s been like a scary grandma basement bathroom (You know the one with one light bulb, a concrete floor,and spiders that no one ever wants to go in.) forever, and it will be so fantastic to have it be a real space again.
