I have been taking a little bloggy break. Not that I really wanted to, it just seemed to turn out that way over the past 2 weeks! Yikes! I can't believe it has been 2 weeks since I have written a post!
I have been doing some of this:
Don't get too jealous because I have been doing mostly this:
(She looks much happier doing work than I! Hehe)
You would be proud to know that I do have paint in the entryway! And I am happy with my final decision. As some of you may remember, I have had quite the time deciding on a gray color for my entryway. So many shades of gray! Why do they do that to us!!??
I really fell in love with Graphite from Restoration Hardware, but felt that it would be too dark in such a small entryway hallway. I am really going to keep this color in mind when I redo my master bath! Colonade Gray and Mindful gray were very soothing, but when the sun came in the front, they were a little on the blue side and I don't have any blue tones downstairs.
So...... I decided to go with Bonsai by Valspar based on the tone on the wall as well as this picture I found online:
This picture sold me right away! A perfect gray that isn't too dark, too light, too blue...just right! It does change color throughout the day. It has a greener tone in the morning and a taupe tone in the evening. I love it!
Here are a couple of pics...(warning: camera wasn't cooperating..bad pics!)
These pictures were also taken with only 1 coat of paint on the walls. I needed two coats to cover up all of those stinkin paint samples! HA!
I am excited to get all my decor items together for this entryway space and hopefully show you all next week!
Look what came the other day:
Ummm..yep! My Carpet Tiles! Now I just have to figure out how to make them all stay together!
Wish me luck!
