Painted Kitchen Cabinets in Sherwin Williams’ Wall Street and Westhighland White

It’s a painting frenzy as we roll into the holidays, and I’m cranking out projects left and right.  Having our first snowfall just makes the holidays seem that much closer, and I’m just not ready for snow just yet.  We had like, a week of fall, people.  Not enough.  Being forced inside, I did paint my master bedroom (more on that soon), but for today, I’m going to share a project that I finished over the summer.  Oak painted kitchen cabinets in Sherwin Williams’ Wall Street and Westhighland White.


Before I got started, this kitchen was like so many that are out there right now.  Plenty of golden oak cabinets.  The homeowners were also going to replace the countertops and have the floors refinished when it was all said and done.  But here you can see where we began this process.

The Color Palette

The homeowners chose Sherwin Williams’ Westhighland White (SW 7566)  for the perimeter cabinets, and Wall Street (SW 7665) for the island.  Westhighland White is a new color for me.  It’s a white that is on the warmer side, and Wall Street is a pretty medium bluish gray.


Here you can see the finished look.  The walls were painted and new countertops were installed which really ties everything together.

What do you think about a contrasting island?  Are you a fan?  I kind of go back and forth on it.  I like the contrast, but it depends on the kitchen.  Sometimes doing everything in the same color makes more sense, but color always makes things more interesting.

      I’ve said it before – I could travel the country if I had a mobile workshop!

    What are your thoughts on Egret by SW for walls, trim and cabinets on old cabinets like this one in the picture?
