Hi, Jen. Sounds like fun. I would recommend painting the kitchen a light color. Your counter sounds mysterious and dark, and with lighter walls (and especially ceiling) the light will bounce around better and you'll be able to see what you're doing. I'm thinking a pale yellow, maybe a tint of the gold you've already chosen. You should be able to use the paint you've already purchased for that. (11/21/2008)
