This Perfect Gray-Beige Paint Color was Picked with the Help of the Homeowner’s Daughter, a Designer
The stained wood was too “orange” for these Morristown homeowners. We sanded them down, primed them with shellac-based primer, and painted them with a specialty cabinet paint in a gray-beige color that pairs well with the flooring and the counter-tops.
We also painted the interior of these divided-light glass-faced kitchen cabinets: the shelves included. The waterborne-alkyd paint we used cures to an extremely durable and washable finish, so the finish on the shelves will hold up to wear-and-tear.
Before any of the kitchen cabinet painting process began we covered all counter-tops, floors, etc. with construction paper to protect them during this kitchen renovation. We love how the gray-beige color pairs with the stainless steel appliances.
