Blue Kitchen Island

bluekitchencounter-3 Hello friends. I hope you’re having a good week so far. If you follow me on Instagram, then this is not new to you but if this is the first time seeing this, than you might be in for a big surprise!
Remember a little while back when I posted  our kitchen reveal? Well, I had planned on  painting the island black but chickened so I think this blue is a good compromise.
Remember the gorgeous runner from last week? Well, it was all part of this….

BLUEKITCHENISLANDCRAFTBERRYBUSH-6 Can you believe it? I need to be honest, it was a little scary at first and I kept saying to myself  “it’s only paint, it’s only paint” . But it’s actually grown on  me and I really love the warmth it adds to the kitchen.


It’s a very warm blue if that makes sense?  I actually saw the recipe and it had a decent ratio of raw amber.



bluekitchencounter-2 I’m not sure how long I will keep it but it’s a nice change for now. I do have a backup of white paint ready to go…ha.

What do you think?

    I LOVE the “interest” or “focal point” it adds to the all-white space! Please keep it! I really like the look of an island being different from the rest of the kitchen!

    Hi lucy
    I painted my island too last year! Hale Navy. I love your white counters (mine are in need of update). I think we have talked about our dogs before, but is your dog a Berner? He/she looks a little leaner than my, chloe. thanks laura

    I love it! I’d love to see the other side, I’m assuming you painted the whole thing including the cabinets on the other side? Do you have any tips or tricks? I’m thinking of painting mine.

    Would you mind sharing what blue you used? This is SO fabulous! We are looking to paint our penninsula blue as well and I would love to see if this is a color that would work in our home as well. Thanks!

    Would you be willing to share the color, brand name and where you purchased the vinyl tile. I absolutely love the look.

    Wow, your kitchen looks AMAZING. I’m starting my kitchen remodeling next month, and all I want is a plenty of space and a gorgeous kitchen island :) I was looking at Apollo custom kitchens and think I’m going with them. Can’t wait to get the job done and to finaLly get my dream kitchen :)

    I LOVE that you painted your island deep blue! It’s absolutely stunning! It ties in so beautifully with the touches of deep blue elsewhere and with your newly painted shelves in the living room. It makes your whole home feel very cohesive. <3
