haha! Lookie there. I finally got to use the book title in a relevant blog post title.
But there seriously are like 50 shades of gray. Scratch that. There’s like one million (said in your best Dr. Evil voice) shades of gray.
We’ve narrowed it down to five to paint our bedroom. The bedroom was blue when we moved in (almost) three years ago, and it is not terribly offensive so we never got around to painting it, but we’re ready for a change, so gray it is.
They’re all Benjamin Moore. From top to bottom: Fieldstone, Rockport Gray, Storm, Gray Owl, and Smoke Embers.
Here it is again, by a window:
And over our bed:
(that’s rockport gray, storm, field stone, gray owl and smoke embers from left to right up there)
And around my messy dresser with my freshly showered self:
On the left is rockport gray (left top), fieldstone (right top), storm (bottom), and on the right is gray owl (top) and smoke embers (bottom).
We forced ourselves to nail it down to these colors because at $6.99 a sample pot, these suckers really add up and I could paint gray swatches for days. So. many. options.
Now the question is: Based on these mostly blurry pictures that are not at all well lit, which is your favorite? We’ve narrowed it down to our top two, but everyone knows I can’t make any decisions without the internet weighing in.
Oh, and in other news, our bookcases were delivered (and by delivered, my dad and Jason picked them up) and I’m in lurve.
Art for above this one still needs to be procured. And optimal drum placement is still to be determined as well as shelf styling. Tips appreciated.
They are behemoths. We turned one into a new entertainment center, so that solves the problem of what to put over this one.
Hope you’re having a great week. Mercury is out of retrograde so things can only go up from here.
