Cabinet Gurus - Anyone recognize this?

Posted by glitter_and_guns (My Page) on

I just found the cabinet color that I NEED! It is a great mix between grey and brown, which will solve a world of problems for me. Does this look familiar to anyone? Or have you seen something similar? Is it a stain? or a multi step stain? or a cabinet that I can buy somewhere? I don't even know what color to call it.

Thank you so much for any help in sending me the right direction!

RE: Cabinet Gurus - Anyone recognize this?

I'm definitely not a guru, but this week I changed the stain for my island and hood. I had chosen a black stain on maple, it was a lovely and beloved weathered gray but entirely too cool for my sapele floors (which are reddish, like cherry and mahogany). So my GC brought over a piece that is warmer, it is labeled TAWS 1887 (expresso) mid-continent. On top there is a cape cod gray glaze, which cools it down further. It looks similar to the walnut posted by greendesigns.
I don't think you have to worry, I'm sure many cabinet lines and any custom manufacturer can get you the right color. Maple is hard and doesn't take stain evenly (like in the picture you posted), I love it, but some people don't.
Here are my white cabs, the gray maple, and granite with my dogs (on my floors).

Here is the new sample shot, sorry the floors and dogs aren't included but you can see the gray vs. the new "expresso" (sic) sample. It looks much better with the floors IRL (but pulls more warmth from the granite, which I didn't necessarily want).

Here is a better view of my stained wood, the flash highlights the gray glaze, it isn't actually so intense.

I have stained maple in "Thunder" by KitchenCraft (canada) and they look very similar. Love it.
