Have You Considered Gray Kitchen Cabinets?


With a few simple modifications to the existing cabinets in this kitchen and a couple of coats of gray paint this kitchen went from "Tuscan Villa" to "Modern and Stylish". The cabinets were a light maple with grape vine trim. The stove hood had a textured crackle finish and sconces mounted on each side. We removed the sconces and the grapevine trim, smoothed the texture and applied a few coats of paint to create this updated modern kitchen.

The cabinets are painted in Sherwin Williams 7045 Intellectual Grey. The stove hood and insets are painted in Sherwin Williams 7046 Anonymous. All the cabinets received a light distressing and a smoky glaze.
