The Acorn Cottage {Shades of Gray}

Calling all decorators and wanna-be decorators!!! I am looking for the perfect shade of gray to paint the kitchen cabinets at the Acorn Cottage. Any suggestions are appreciated.

I am leaning towards Benjamin Moore's Chelsea Gray, but if you have a favorite let me hear from you.

The backsplash:

The countertops:

Cabinet hardware:

Thanks in advance.

Shades of Gray, y'all!


  1. Is your counter marble or granite. What is the name of the color?

  2. Good evening, Ron! Looking at the backsplash and countertop, I think that gray will pop on the cabinets especially with the hardware. I found this that you might want to look at, though. https://builderssurplus.us/top-10-gray-cabinet-paint-colors/
    I'm not sure how big your kitchen will be and how many cabinets you will have. My only concern is that if the kitchen is too small that the darker gray will make it look even smaller. I'm no interior decorator by any means, but I do watch HGTV all the time! I'm sure whatever you decide it will be a show-stopper! I saw Honey at Rouses today--she said you don't know the meaning between a "want" and a "need"! ;) Have a great evening! Cheers! xoxo

    1. Honey uses that line all the time. Chelsea Gray it is!!!!

  3. Ron you got this. I love the color you picked out. It will be beautiful with the counter tops and backsplash. I cannot wait to see this all in place.

  4. Love the colors you are leaning towards, Ron. No matter what you pick it will be perfect! xo Diana

  5. Trust your own judgment - those are gorgeous together.

  6. Hey Ron!
    Without seeing the actual samples, it's hard to tell on my computer screen if the backsplash, countertop, and hardware work with these other BM grays, but, you might consider these Benjamin Moore colors, too: 'Smoke Gray' (2120-40), 'Steel Wool' (2121-20), or 'Whale Gray' (2134-40). Hope this helps! :) - Trisha

  7. Hey Ron, check out Cyndy (?) The Creativity Exchange's blog. She is a whiz with colors and I believe has a post about gray cabinet paint colors from both SW and BM.

    1. Thanks! I am now SOLD on Chelsea Gray....


Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
