PAINTED KITCHEN ISLAND IN SHERWIN WILLIAMS PRIVILEGE GREEN DISTRESSED TO HIDE SCUFF MARKES FROM BOOTS AND TO AVOID HAVING TO REPAINT OFTEN.

Black Concrete Countertops and Upper Cupboard Painted With Sherwin Williams Lotus PodI did it, I finally made the time to paint the kitchen island and the color I picked was Sherwin William Privilege Green. I really loved my white painted cupboards but the seating side of the island was just to much up keep, it constantly had scuff marks from shoes (work boots) on it and I either had to crawl on my hands and knees and scrub it often or repaint it to cover them up.

Sherwin Williams Paint ColorsI finally decided it was to much work, and the easiest solution was to paint it and distress it that way the scuff marks would never been seen. While hubby and the boys spent the week up north snowmobiling I decided to tackle the project. It took me three days to get the look I was going for but I’m happy to say…..I’m Loving It!!

It’s a natural color that mimics the color of wood in my opinion making it look like my original base color was wooden cabinets.

We have so many windows that I had to wait until it was completely dark to break out the projector to stencil the letters onto the island. I kept it simple with “Cabin On The Hill, Established 2005”. I felt like it wasn’t something I’d get tired of right away.

Let me say Black Fox is my new go to alternative to black. It’s the perfect color and not as harsh as black. Later that evening when all the paint was dry I hit it with my orbital sander to distress it.

  1. It looks so good, Dawn! Love it!

  2. Love it. Perfect for your rustic yet not-so-rustic cabin. Also, did I miss the new living room furniture post?

  3. Love it! I have a green and white kitchen and my island is green, also!

  4. Bravo! You have great skills 🙂 Love the change.L

  5. It looks fantastic and I love how it highlights all of your green bottled glass, etc.
    I’ve been busy this week putting away any last bit of winter decor (pinecones, etc) and bringing out fresh colors that are cheerful and hint at Spring. I’ve also added some bright colors to my winter outfits. Nothing new, just shopping the house. I’ve also been rearranging some of the rooms and I’m very pleased with the results.

  6. Dawn, I am in love with your island redo! We had an island in our previous home and I was always having to clean and touch up the paint. You have created the perfect solution. The more it gets scuffed, the better it will look!

    Perfect choice and adds more interest. Love your kitchen.

    1. Tanya, thank you I’m in love with the color too and I’m looking for other places to use it.

  8. Great job! Love the color..really adds that pop of color & looks rustic!

    1. Thanks Linda, I’m enjoying it’s new look.

  9. You have inspired me to think about painting my kitchen island! My kitchen cupboards are blue now which we are planning on painting blue again. My kitchen island is black the color when we got it so l’m thinking that I would paint it yellow since the walls are yellow too.It has butcher block top. I also have red in my kitchen too but I don’t think red would be the best color!

  10. You have a great talent for foreseeing how things will look after they are finished! That is a rare quality! Very nicely done! Happy Mother’s Day!
