I am looking to replicate this color. In your earlier comment you mention you started with a color similar to Benjamin Moore Gray Mist but that color is almost creme colored, not nearly as blue/green/gray as this picture. Do you know the exact color underneath the dark coffee glaze?

I am so glad you brought that up! The color that it is similar to is Benjamin Moore Gray Wisp--not Gray Mist!. Gray Wisp is 1570. It is actually more of a green/gray than this color. This is slightly more blue and has a little more gray in it. Hope this is helpful.

Very helpful - thank you! Sherwin Williams Comfort Gray seems similar as well, with a tiny bit more blue in it. Think the Gray Wisp is a good start! Thanks again...

The other cabinets are also glazed. The cabinets were painted a creamy white and we applied a custom coffee colored glaze and wiped it off. The glaze then remains in the grain and around all the edge details of the cabinets.

The countertop is a material that sadly is no longer available. It is called Alamo and it is honed. I have only seen it at one distributor and they can't get it any more. It is a beautiful creamy stone with soft grays, and streaks of caramel.

Hi Jenni. We love your work on this kitchen. What are these cabinets made of? Looks like wood. Any reason why wood over MDF for painted? We want wood but pros keep telling us to use MDF if painting due to cracking where the 5 piece door is put together. Thanks

Thank you! I am so glad you love it! It is true that painted wood in a 5 piece door will be more prone to cracking. With that said, these cabinets are painted birch and we use painted maple on a regular basis. (I have painted maple in my own kitchen.) MDF is also very vulnerable to moisture damage. I think it's a good idea to listen to your cabinet maker's advice. But there is nothing wrong with asking other cabinet makers to see what they think. Would a little crack at the joint drive you crazy? We designed the cabinets in these photos to have the patina and charm of older cabinetry.
