Painting the kitchen Bavarian creme color with Benjamin Moore paint

Hi there everyone!

Today I am sharing  our refreshed Spring/Summer project of Painting the kitchen Bavarian creme color with Benjamin Moore paint.

 This has been on the list for a while and finally we gotter done.

I swear having a few rooms painted is like moving all over again.  Our house has been in such disarray and messy as all get out.

Finally getting back in order and purging in the process.

The color we chose for the kitchen is called Bavarian creme by Benjamin Moore.  

We used the Aura eggshell finish.

pie safe and kitchen color

In the kitchen spruce  I changed up a few things.  

I decided the pie safe makeover I did last year needed the same color as the walls around the trim.

It totally brightened up the piece.  I still have to lightly distress it.

 In fact, you can actually see the pieces I have inside now.  

Well some of them anyway. This little pie safe is pretty packed. The soup tureen takes center stage. My Mom gave that to me a few years back.  It’s vintage and I love it.

I also made pretty wreath for the window.

My friend Ann made her daughter a Spring/Summer wreath recently and because I already had all the same supplies on hand, I made one too!

Vintage tea cups

I found things I have not had out in years.  Like these pretty little vintage tea cups.

They are bright and cheery just like the kitchen.

Kithchen color makeover with Benjamin Moore

I had the garden pot already.  I believe that came from Hobby lobby a few years back.

 These pics I am sharing are not my final, final.  As you can see I have things out of place until I figure out where I want them.  A lot of things I will just tuck away and recirculate on another time.

This pottery set was on this shelf for 4 years.  My father in law gave us this set and I adore it.

Now I have my husbands Grandmothers tea set that she gave us years ago when we were first married.  

See, I really do recirculate and I have so many gifted sentimental things to switch out to.

Notice the shelf is a tad darker now?

If you missed my kitchen refresh from last year you will see it was lighter.

I simply took some dark wax to it.  You can now see the wood grain even better.

stained glass

My husband had a fantastic idea today.  

He wasted no time getting to this project.  This stained glass piece use to be on the opposite wall over the burlap curtains window.

He hung it over the  window.

Notice how the faux beams pop now?!

Final picture and this is where I would like some input.

Kitchen ladder shelf makeover needed

This bookshelf ladder I have in the corner is obviously not my style.

 I like it though and want to transform it with paint and make it rustic looking.

The decor on here is not what will be. Some will stay some will get tucked away.  I just had to put it someplace in the meantime so we could function in the kitchen.

I have a color dilemma.  Right now I have two blue pieces, and the table is green.

Not sure what color to make this piece.  I don’t want will blend in too much with the new wall color.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for stopping by today.

    Lovely! And how bright and clean.
    Bookshelf: The same paint and sheen as your trim. It’ll disappear into the wall and all your treasures will stand out.

    You’ve done a lovely job@

  2. says

    It’s beautiful color paint. I love the stain glass on the window. I could see the shelf painted in a muted gray.

  3. says

    Love the brightness and I’d do the trim the same colour as the walls too. Benjamin Moore just makes the best paint. I’ve now got it everywhere in the house. Hey! I didn’t know you were on instagram-off to follow you.

    So light and it!!! I also like the stained glass..and the shelf is darker..looks great against the new paint color.The faux beams show up even better. Nice job Debbie.

  5. says

    I love the new color, Debbie. The room is so cheerful and bright now. I like the contrasting look on the pie safe. Have you considered a similar paint treatment on the ladder shelf? Maybe rough it up a bit? Decoupage the shelves?

  6. says

    So happy to see you posted on painting and not a great recipe LOL! I gain weight everytime I visit your great recipe posts because I want to try them all. This color is beautiful. I love the way it sets off the beams on the ceiling. It is so bright and fresh and pretty. Great job. Love it.

  7. says

    Debbie the kitchen looks fantastic. Love the color choice. How about the trim color with some antiquing glaze?? The beams really are gorgeous!

    Seems like we’re all going lighter and brighter this year…I love the new color Debbie!! Your kitchen looks so fresh and pretty…love the stained glass piece! Happy Mother’s Day friend!

    Debbie, your kitchen looks amazing! I am loving all the lighter color that blog friends are choosing these days. The window space where your husband hung the leaded glass window is perfect! It really shows up there.

  11. says

    I just flipping love everything! Painting a room to me is almost as great as rearranging the furniture- it gives it a whole new look with very little out of pocket.

  12. says

    Your kitchen is looking beautiful, Debbie! We use Benjamin Moore paints in our house too, I just love their products. Still have more rooms to do when my husband has a bit more time. (he does wall, I do everything else)
    Debbie :)

    Love the kitchen. It looks bright and cheery! as far as the paint color for your ladder, I would paint it the same color as my wall or trim and cover it in a caramel colored glaze. I think that would bring the color of your burlap drapes, your pottery pieces and your clock face over to the other side of the room. Good Luck! I know whatever you do will be gorgeous!
