Matching Cabinet Stain?
 
2 Attachment(s)

I'm not certain this is the proper forum for this question, but looking for some help.

Long story short: Wife purchased new appliances, got them delivered but didn't install right away because we were waiting on the new countertops to be installed. When we went to install new fridge, it was 2" taller than the old one and didn't fit under the existing cabinet. We ordered a new shorter cabinet, but the color is a bit off / different.

So, now I'm looking for tips to match the color of the new cabinet to the existing cabinets. Any hints, suggestions? I'm attaching a few photos, but not sure the slight difference will show up. The ridges in the old cabinets are darker (thinking some light Old English might fix that) and the overall color of the old cabinets look a little more yellow (no idea how to address this one).

Appreciate any suggestions.
