New cabinet paint color clashes with counters

Hi. I just finished painting our standard 1990s oak kitchen cabinets. The color is called ***** Willow and itís basically a gray color. The cabinets look great and I couldnít be happier with their new appearance but then I noticed the color doesnít look very good with the counter. The counter is looking more brown up against the gray and it stands out in a bad way. Is there a way to fix this without repainting or changing the counter? Do you think if I painted the cabinet box faces the wall color it would soften the clashing effect? Thanks so much, Kathy

Yes, leave it alone for a while and see if you can learn to live with it.

I agree it's not the best color for that top but often once we move onto other things, what bugs us now won't later.

Thank you. I had to laugh because you both sound like my husband, he said to wait and we'll get used to it. I'm not sure I'll be able to but we'll see. Thanks again.
