Please help me in picking out a color for my pantry. Walls now are painted creamish - BM oakwood manor - I want a bright fun color. We have the mexican saltilo tiles, and the shelves are painted a golden yellow. I was thinking some kind of orange. Thanks!

You could even paint back of shelves orange and leave shelves and upright dividers yellow. The two colors might make the area more exiting and yet still go with rest of space.

RE: What color to paint pantry?

Great color!!! brand of paint and what is the color named? Also did you paint back of shelves this terra cotta color?

I am glad you chose this color. Makes the room much more dramatic. Good job!!

RE: What color to paint pantry?

color is Southern Tip by Glidden, but I wouldn't recommend Glidden paint, I picked up a color sample at home depot, and thought it was Behr. I just used Behr to paint my pantry and office.. much better paint. I should of had them color match, like I did with a BM color.

I did not paint the back of the shelves.. too much work! I think it would have looked nice, and great if I did it before they were all filled! They are painted the same color as the rest of the shelves.
