We started out with a custom cabinet base that Drywall Hubby’s partner made for us. I then applied a really rough application of antique walnut stain and then I sprayed it with General Finishes Sanding Sealer.
After the sanding sealer was nice and dry, I sprayed on General Finishes Milk Paint in Queenstown Gray. Just rubbing the edges back or anywhere I wanted the stain to show through.
As much as I loved it at this stage, I was feeling like it still need a little somethin’ somethin’. Soooo…I added General Finishes VanDyke Brown Glaze Effects overtop. I don’t know exactly what it is about VanDyke Brown Glaze but if you ever paint something and it needs something extra…add a layer of VanDyke Brown Glaze!
It added just the right amount of warmth to the dark gray! I love it paired with my quartz countertops and vinyl plank floor. I’ve had this finish on my island for about three years now and that’s where my stove is located. Even with daily cooking it still looks absolutely amazing! Since then I’ve did this finish on several clients cabinets along with fireplace mantles and stair spindles. If your looking for a color combination that’s not black and not gray, I recommend you try this one!
