Gray Love

Let's face it, I have never fallen out of love with gray, but I am officially back on the gray wagon. For the kitchen cabinets that is. I watched Dear Genevieve this weekend and she used "Chelsea Gray" for the kitchen cabinets and it looked beautiful. I cannot find a picture of the room anywhere, but here is a swatch...

 Here are some other inspiration pics I pulled together....

Now here is my dilemma. I have had my heart set on using Rustoleum's Cabinet Transformations. I really don't want to do all that sanding! However, the only color they have close to Chelsea Gray 

is Federal Gray

 and to me it looks purple. I am wondering if they would be able to add some brown undertones to it to make it more neutral. Does anybody know if they will help you make a custom color with their kit? I am assuming they won't, but it never hurts to ask. If they won't do it I think I will just have to do my cabinets the old school way. I don't want to settle on a color I don't love just to use their kit. Hopefully I can make it to Home Depot sometime in the next week and ask all of these questions. I'll let you know what I find out.

Have a nice day:)


  1. Hi Bobi!

    I am having the exact same dilemma. I have been intrigued with the Rustoleum Cabinet Transformations for my kitchen, because I don't want to de-gloss and sand, but I want the color to be just right, and I'm also looking to do my kitchen in gray, probably somewhere between light to medium.

    I adore the font on your blog, and the simplicity of the design, by the way. I am going to check back with you to see what you decide, so I hope you keep posting your kitchen updates.

    Just remember, you can do this! :) Melanee

  2. Thank you Melanee!

    My Dad is coming to town this weekend so I am hoping his handy dandy self will help me come up with a solution! I'll let you know what we decide!

    Have a great day:)

  3. I just used this exact kit in federal gray on my bedroom furniture, it turned out great with no purple. I used the glazed.


I always love to hear from you:)
