after much debate..

I've decided to paint my kitchen island. I know some of you will think I'm crazy for painting perfectly nice cabinets but they are just not "me".  I would love to actually paint all of them but think I'll start with this and see how it goes. My entire house is full of cherry cabinets, 3 bathrooms and the kitchen. I just feel like it's very overwhelming.

So the plan is to paint the island in black to contrast the cherry and install beadboard on one side. I think it will look really nice with the damask roman shade. Here is the kitchen now..

Here are some ideas of the look I'm going for...


  1. Love this idea! I'm actually going for the same house is full of oak cabinets, and they're great. But they're not my style! I don't think you'll regret painting!

  2. as I write this, I am getting cherry cabinets with an island with black bead board, granite tops all around! will send photo..A.Rita
