The best small kitchen storage ideas are always about the details. You may only have one wall to work with, and only room for one small cart or shelf against that wall. So why not make it really stand out? By painting the wall directly behind this cart a dark blue-black, this storage solution suddenly becomes a stylish tableau all on its own. The colorful painting only adds to the charm.
