I snagged this second hand kitchen island to add some more counter space in my kitchen. I changed the hardware to brushed nickel to match my other cabinets but the wood is slightly darker than my other cabs. I want to paint it a complimentary color. Initially planned on white but I'm now having second thoughts. Looking for opinions. My live in girlfriend is against painting it, but she was against the island idea entirely at first and now loves the functionality of it.
