I must confess I am thrilled. This new color really accentuates the counters much better than yellow did. It's also much more forgiving than the yellow was when painting around the white door trim and baseboards. I also think perhaps I'm a more experienced painter now than I was at the time I painted the kitchen yellow. That was my first major painting project, and since then I have painted every other room in the house.
Now I just need to do something about the drab off-white doors. I haven't painted any doors in this house and I'm definitely not looking forward to it but it must be done.
