In Case You Were Wondering....

...just how many shades of gray there are...
...I can assure you that there are plenty to choose from. Thousands in fact.

there is:
gray mist
comfort gray
stormy monday
london fog
cement gray
light french gray
and you can't forget the blue-grays:
blue heather
misty morn
I should know...
I've. Tried. Them. All.

and I think I've settled on Light French Gray by Behr as seen above.
I'll spare you the TONS of color swaths I've painted all over the walls and just show you this one wall. It shows Stormy Monday by Benjamin Moore, Eminence by Behr and finally, the one I think I may have settled on...Light French Gray.

So here's the deal. We have finished the other half of our basement which will house a gym for my husband and a studio/work/craft room for me. YES!! That's right, my very own space to call my own. Decorated the way that I want. I can sew, paint, create and blog there. And, I don't even have to clean it all up when I'm done (but I probably will ~ I'm kinda orderly like that) Plus, unlike in my current situation, I'll actually be able to find what I'm looking for. I simply cannot wait until it's all finished. Another couple of weeks! So here is part of the room pictured above. The floors arrived last week. They're sitting here waiting for me to pick out a paint color...and then get it up on the walls. Hoping to have that done by Monday and floor down by Wednesday. The ugly light you see there hanging down in the back of the photo ~ that will be a new chandelier full of drippy crystals...mmmmm..I can't wait!
As soon as it's done, I'll be sure to post lots of photos!
Have a great weekend everyone!
xo and God Bless,

I love that you are painting your new space gray! We recently did our bathroom in a gray called 'Teardrop'. I love the names they have for paint colors!

I can't wait to see the 'after' pictures and congratulations on getting your own craft room!

I have brought home all those grey swatches too! It is really hard to decide isn't it. Same with whites. Your studio sounds WoNdErFuL!!!! And you are one lucky girl to have a chandie going in it. I only have one chandie and it is from Ikea(affordable)...to some it's probably not considered a real chandie, but I love it just the same. I hear you about the clean studio...mine is so clean people think I'm wierd!
