So excited about our doors!!!


Getting ready to texture the living room.


Liam’s room will stay white but that back wall will have a Juniper geometric accent wall.


Keeping guest room white for now.

2014-03-25_0028So had our first home renovator fail. We had originally decided on Benjamin Moore “Revere Pewter” for the Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, Hallway and our bedroom. But when I started to put it in our room it looked a lot more beige/brown than gray. Turns out the sample we had on the wall looks way different. Think it has something to do with the light exposure in our house. Or, our house has some crazy paint vortex. Either way.

Long story short we are selling 10 gallons of Revere Pewter if you are interested!  

So we are back at it with the grays.

From Left to Right

1. Harbor Gray 2. Gray Owl 3. Silver Chain

Picking the right gray has been the hardest! They can pull a blue, purple, green, or brown tint very easily so it has been incredibly difficult. Last night I have even had a dream about GRAYS!! It’s going to make me go gray here soon!

The Harbor Gray and Silver Chain look very similar and I liked them both but think they are too dark for our space. We are going to go with Gray Owl.

Let’s try this again.
