I love beige. In fact almost every room in this house is beige with an exciting pop of white trim. Exclusions are the rooms that I have not painted yet. It was about time for some color around here. Enter the Ikea Bekvam unfinished birch kitchen cart and a $2 paint tester from the HD. Two coats later…Hello aqua, nice to meet you.
For you detail hounds out there…
The paint is Behr premium plus in Spring Stream, a nice light aqua.
The top is stained with 2 coats of Minwax dark walnut stain, then 1 top coat of Minwax Polyshades in mission oak satin. I left the slatted shelves unstained and rubbed some tung oil on them.
