I know I share a lot of white cabinet makeovers, so I’m always excited to share something that falls outside of the customer norm. Today is one of those days! I shared this kitchen cabinet project in Anew Gray, and it continues to be one of my favorites. I love non-white kitchen cabinets and think they add some wonderful charm and character that stands out from the sea of white cabinets that is so prevalent on your Pinterest feed. Today I’m excited to share Mindful Gray kitchen cabinets with you!

This kitchen is unique in that the countertops are not “typical” of what you see out there these days. There is something to be said for being non-typical, because these counters are gorgeous. They’re just crying out for something unique and interesting. There are so many wonderful colors to pull from in these countertops – oh the choices!
But let’s start by taking a look at the kitchen before I got started. There are some great elements in place here already – the backsplash and counters give us a great base to build upon with paint (and new cabinet hardware). I love painting maple cabinets because they have no grain to them and spray up beautifully!
You can see here that they have tile that has some beige/brown in it, which is a challenge for so many of us, myself included. The trick is finding the right gray that will work with your existing finishes not against them. Sherwin Williams’ Mindful Gray is one of my go-to gray paint colors. It’s a warm gray and a perfect neutral, whether you’re planning on using it on walls, cabinets or even the exterior of your home.
And here is the kitchen now. Hardware has been changed out as well, giving it a whole new look and feel.
The glass knobs are unexpected, but they give the kitchen a kind of a furniture vibe. But will you just look at how that counter pops against the gray? It’s like it was meant to be that way from the beginning.
Sorry, the light makes the cabinets look different depending upon how it hits them.
The homeowners are thrilled with their new kitchen, and I’m happy to oblige. It’s so much fun to do something a little outside of the box, don’t you think? I’m hoping this trend continues!
