I hope you had a terrific weekend. I spent a portion of my weekend working on the kitchen. I finally broke down and painted! Originally, I had planned to paint the room a dark charcoal. Hoping for a deep, matte charcoal, I chose Knight’s Armor by Olympic as the final color.
However, part way through the first coat I realized that it was 1. not bold enough and 2. had a bit of a navy undertone. After going back to the drawing board, I decided to go BLACK. I chose a warm black by Sherwin Williams, SW 6991 Black Magic.
As soon as I first strokes went up I knew it was the right choice. I finished painting yesterday afternoon and love the dramatic changes! After the final touches were in place I briefly thought to myself… maybe I should paint every room in my house black…Before starting, I was nervous to go black. I was afraid it would be too much, but I think I have found my new favorite wall color. It feels so fresh and contemporary. The charcoal was not bold enough for the space, it felt drab.
I still have a little work to do in the kitchen before the final reveal, I can’t wait to share!
