I used a warm creamy mocha for the exterior of the island, sealed, and then finished with dark wax. The interior is a smoky duck egg blue that reads as a gray in some lights. I swapped out the hilarious square knobs (hello 70s!) for a matched pair of early 19th century turned knobs in their original finish that I've been saving for a special project. And of course, I added a pine top, because who among us hasn't wished for more counter space!
