Project: Painting the kitchen cart

One of my favorite practical things in our apartment is the Ikea kitchen cart we bought to hold everything our tiny kitchen cabinets can't. We use it for pots and pans, and though I'd prefer to have everything out of sight, I don't mind this.


It's still raw wood, and I want to paint it (except the butcher block top, of course), but I don't know for sure what color. 

I initially thought I wanted to paint it white, but do you think that would be too boring? I am also throwing around the idea of another fun color. One idea I had was to match the coral from the agricultural map of France that hangs over the cart and paint it that color. So far it's the one I am leaning toward, but I'm just not sure. Here are a few of my favorite color ideas from Pinterest.

Greens or blues:

Reds or corals:

So what do you think, blog world? Should I play it safe and go with white? Or pick a totally different color?

i think the coral or that blue color in the plates would look cool. If you don't like it, you can always change it!

I think matching it to your current kitchen is a good idea...especially the blue color! :) Or Yellow!! Yellow is good. You are so good at this. You should decorate my house for me.

I'm currently in love with coral, and I think it's a really versatile color. I also think that would look lovely next to your KitchenAid :)

Love the kitchen cart - I'm having a love affair with blue right now, but you can also never go wrong with a splash of a warm color. Let us know what you decide!
