In my quest to repaint every room in my house at least 47 times before 2013…I’m repainting the Butler’s Pantry…. again.
And I’m going with grey.
I know you’re shocked. Perhaps even amazed….at this bold choice.
That’s how I roll.
There was really no need to buy gray paint samples.
I just went to the workshop that is filled to the brim with paint. Gray paint. Lots of gray paint. Because I had already painted this room gray and this room gray and then painted this room….wait for it….wait for it…..ummmm…..gray.
And after I painted these four swatches of gray…..I stared at them.
And looked at them with the light on and the light off and up close and far away and sideways and frontways and upside down.
And then I decided that I needed a second opinion.
me: Can you look at these paint samples and tell me which one you think I should paint in the butler’s pantry?
husband: (nervously glancing around) Ummm. Well. Ummm. (staring at ceiling…..as if seeking help from a higher power) I’m not really sure.
me: Really. I want your opinion. Which grey do you like the best?
husband: Okay…. (bracing shoulders and inhaling) Okay. Well….I think I really like number 4 or number 1? (more glances my direction) Or number 3?
me: (no response)
husband: Number 2? Maybe number 2?
me: (jumping up and down and hugging him) Number 2? You really like number 2? Because that’s my favorite! That’s the one I like. Seriously. You are brilliant. You have such a good eye with color.
husband: (hugging me back in relief now that the treacherous road toward picking a paint color has been navigated successfully) Really. It was nothing.
So number 2 it is.
SW Mindful Gray.
And thank goodness for the second opinion.
I don’t know how I’d ever pick a paint color without it 🙂
PS Stop back by Monday for the Butler’s Pantry in all it’s Mindful Gray glory.
PPS Can you believe I got this at a yard sale? A giant bag of dried lavender and 23 canvas bags? I know it says $10….but I got it for only $7.50?!?!
I am so happy!!! And I’m sharing this over at Rhoda’s. Where all the really cool people show off their soon-to-be Christmas present yard sale finds.
