Give Me Gray!

Back on my gray kick again! Time to start transforming the living room before the new sectional arrives. This transformation will include stripping down the faux stone finish on the original window trim, re-staining the hard wood floors and changing the wall color from a dark tan to a soft gray…my favorite of course.

We started with the faux stone finish on the original stone work…talk about a process. We tried paint stripper, which worked but created a huge mess.

Now, the color that was on the walls wasn’t a horrible color but being so dark it made the room feel smaller and it wasn’t really the look I was going for.  As we all know picking out the right gray color can be a little challenging but after a few weeks I finally had chosen “the one”…Gray Owl by Benjamin Moore. I absolutely love it. It is light and airy and makes the room feel so different.

Now that we have the walls done I guess I should move on to the trim and floors.  Stay tuned for more updates to come this week. I have a few long nights ahead of me 🙂
