Hello Friends, so glad you dropped by today! I am experiencing pre-Spring fever, you know-- that urge to cleanse, refresh and overall brighten my surroundings. I have been wanting to repaint my dining room and update the mocha brown color.
After being thrilled with the results from a makeover project I completed awhile back, I decided I wanted to use gray and was off to Home Depot. (I am convinced their Behr Ultra Plus Primer brand is the best for painting walls.) Pretty quickly I found a soothing pale shade I was drawn to, and stood in line to have it mixed--seems I wasn't the only with a project in mind! Once I got home, it didn't take long for me to realize two things:
A. The color I chose was almost identical to some Vintage dishes I recently purchased--leave it to me to find inspiration in dinnerware!
B. I am somewhat schizophrenic when it comes to painting. Here's what I mean--as I started painting, I immediately panicked when my anticipated dreamy gray appeared to be white! Since I only intended to paint this wall and the other walls were a creamy off white, I was already contemplating getting a whole different shade. However, within an hour when the paint dried to the exact shade I imagined, the conversation in my mind went from, "Oh No!" to "I love it and I am going to paint the rest of the walls too!" Here's how the silvery gray wall dried:
After allowing the paint to dry overnight, I arranged all of my fabulous frames from Friday's post; first on the floor, then on the wall. I am absolutely smitten with the fresh white frames against this pale gray!
Here's view of the dining room--what do you think?! Next time I will share how this gorgeous gray transformed the rest of my living space. Come back and see!
As always, I welcome your feedback and would love to hear about your adventures in painting!
