Hidden Herringbone

October 1, 2015

It’s home decorating week for us at Wild Ruffle, thanks to Pittsburgh Paints & Stains!

Back when we moved into our house less than a year ago, I wondered how long it would take for my crew to gum up the sides of our island. What man thought it was a good idea to put flat builders paint on the centerpiece of our home? Seriously. Come on dude.

As you can imagine, it took all of 3 seconds to get nasty. I’ve been trying to come up with an answer to my situation ever since. I didn’t want anything too over powering, it had to be subtle yet sophisticated. I’d already chosen a herringbone patterned travertine backsplash for the kitchen {paired with travertine subway tile} and while I’m patiently waiting for my better half to install this beloved tile, I thought I’d get the island all set up to match that look.

The thought of gently wiping away the grit and grim seemed like a dream, that is until Cate and I hit the local Menards last week. The Digital Inspiration Studio led me to this design epiphany because, you guys… mixing and matching colors on the big screen… So fun!

After I climbed down out of the clouds and focused, I finally chose Glazed Granite in Matte Finish and SemiGloss Finish. Creating a textured, tonal herringbone pattern that easily wipes clean with a flick of the wrist.

Poof! The magical Semi-Gloss paint granted my wish complete.
