>I had a project where I needed to match existing maple cabinetry that had a whitewashed look and a lacquer finish. What worked for me was a pigment stain I bought at a local paint and stain company. I believe it contained titanium dioxide in a mineral spirits base.
By diluting it with paint thinner I was able to closely match the look of the original cabinets.
Hope that helps.
