I spent last weekend and the rest of this week painting my kitchen island. Most of the kitchen is white, but I wanted a pop of color on the kitchen island in the nook area.  I decided to go with the denim color I used in my front room.

We have the same style of cabinets built for the island, they just came unfinished and ready to paint.

We wanted to add some legs to add support to the granite and give the island character. So we built a skirt and attached legs to the sides to make it feel more like a piece of furniture.

It was so fun and easy to paint. I used pro classic enamel paint from Sherwin Williams, and let me tell you, I loved it! It went on so well, and has the best finish. It feels just like the doors that came pre finished on our other cabinets.  I brushed the legs and rolled the rest of the cabinet with my foam roller. It looks and feels just like we sprayed it.

I love the pop of color it adds to the kitchen. It makes it feel bright and fun. I am going to find some yellow bar stools to put around it for a little more color. We are waiting for granite, and then we need to add some back splash.  So close!
