After you´ve removed the hardware, wipe and clean the cabinets to remove any grease, dust or other grime. Once you`ve finished wiping down the cabinets, sand them lightly to create a slightly roughened surface for your paint to stick to. You`ll then want to remove all the drawers and drawer fronts from the island. Use masking paper to cover the interior, floor and countertop. Next you'll want to caulk any seams between the panels and doorframes; fill any holes with wood filler. Let the wood filler dry, then sand it until it is flush with the cabinet´s surface. Wipe the cabinetry clean once again to remove any traces of dust.
If you want to keep the room fairly neutral, choose a subtle shade for your island such as cream, beige, greige or a subtle pastel shade. If you′re willing to be more adventurous, a bold shade can really shine on a kitchen island. Since the island is a focal point in the room, a striking shade can ground the space and make the room feel fun and inviting. Some colors that would work well with a kitchen island include yellow, turquoise, navy blue, orange and red. Lighter colors such as blue, gray and mint can really shine too. Whichever color you choose, make sure it‵s one you really love and won′t grow tired of over time.
A French country kitchen island will call for cabinets made from a rustic wood and, perhaps, stained a barn red or light antique green. Top the woodwork off with a white counter or butcher block surface to complete the look. These French kitchen islands also typically work well with an extra punch of colorful tile embedded in the countertop or sides of the island.
