In January, I painted my kitchen ceiling and walls Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter…. while watching the movie Love Actually, twice. I loved the new color instantly because the paint lightened up my north facing kitchen in a few hours. But, with the lighter paint color, but this same color on the island showed every scuff mark and errant spaghetti sauce splatter. It was time to bring a little color back into the kitchen and I chose a navy kitchen island.
Benjamin Moore’s Hale Navy for the kitchen island was a game changer in my kitchen.
Kitchen Island Before
Hale Navy provided a dark shade of navy for an area that gets a lot of dirt when friends of all ages grab a snack or a quick dinner. Boxed pizza makes a visit to the island at least once a week.
And, the best part of painting the kitchen island a bold color? I mean, it is the best reason to paint a kitchen island.
Kitchen islands don’t require a ladder to paint. And, with one 6″ roller I painted the navy kitchen island in about twenty minutes.
And, if I didn’t like the results it would have been an easy correction.
I love the look. It adds a much needed splash of color to the kitchen. I added Hale Navy to a few other niches in my house. I have added matching window treatments to the windows in the nook (details to follow). Love it!
