1 Paint Color, 4 Ways

Home Builder with West Magnolia Charm

I want to share how you can use one paint color in 4 different ways. And that paint color is Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore. 

Revere Pewter is an extremely popular paint color. It has been called "the perfect greige" and it quite honestly is. Greige is the way I'd best describe the color. It's gray with just the right amount of warmth to it. In certain lighting, it will look quite gray and in other lighting situations, its warm undertones will show more.


1. Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchen cabinets are a great place to use Revere Pewter. This light greige paint color is the perfect option for someone looking to use a gray paint color but without the starkness of some grays can have. Paint all your cabinets with Revere Pewter or opt for a two-toned cabinet look. Whatever you choose, this color will look lovely.


2. Built-in Bookshelves.

Adding a gray like Revere Pewter to built-in bookshelves of cabinetry will add dimension and contrast to a room. Being that the color is light it will provide the room with a subtle contrast from the walls. Or for a monochromatic look use Revere Pewter on both the built-ins and walls to create a seamless flow.


3. Ceilings

Ceilings are often overlooked when it comes to adding color. Using a color like Revere Pewter on the ceiling is a great way to add a bit of unexpected color without going overboard. If you have a larger room, consider going a shade darker on your walls with Revere on the ceiling. 


4. Furniture

This light greige is the perfect color to paint old outdated furniture. Use it on an old dresser to bring it back to life while giving it a modern look. The neutral color is the perfect option to fit into your existing decor. 


Revere Pewter is a great neutral greige that can be used in more ways than one. Next painting project you decide to take on, consider this perfect greige for the job.
