Hi I really love this kitchen the aqua chairs and the paint on the wall. - Please tell me the paint that was used. Thank you

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The kitchen island is command central for the Diehls. "The renovation was primarily just an island, but it completely transformed the space and enabled my husband to use and move around in the kitchen with ease," says Jen, who finished the room by giving the walls a cheerful coat of yellow paint.

Or how about painted tin ceiling tiles?

I love the tin tiles on the island! I also got creative w/some tiles which my husband & I rescued from a Chicago church that was being torn down. It looks really cool! It's great that you're able to use the original cabinets (or they look original anyway)! Love the buffet/coffee bar in the dining area! Frees up valuable counter space.
