I Painted My Kitchen Black (!)

This happened.

Yep, I painted my kitchen black! I’m so in love with it.

It all started when I painted my back wall with chalkboard paint.

I loved the look but the rest of the room was still so… beige.

Then one day was thinking… what if I paint the whole kitchen black????

I was too nervous to do it with out seeing what it would look like first so I created a mock up.

Then I was convinced and just did it.

Here are a few shots from at night.

It isn’t too dark for me. There is only one lightbulb in there so it has never been super bright at night, but it doesn’t bother me.

Would you ever paint a room black? I’m so glad I went with my gut on this one.

  1. This looks great!!!!!!!! The black paint contrasting with the white cabinets works so much better than the beige.
