Gray is Teresa’s favorite color, so I wasn’t surprised when she pulled out about 100 gray paint samples for the kitchen. There were green grays, blue grays, yellow grays, lavender grays…who’d have thought there would be so many options?
After pinning most of them onto the walls so we could see them in different light, we started the process of elimination, pulling down ones we didn’t like until only the winner remained: Sharkey Gray:
This is what it looks like on the walls (the photo is taken after dark):
It’s a really cool color because sometimes it looks gray and sometimes beige. That’s the corner where the refrigerator will stand. You may remember what it used to look like.
We were inspired by gray and white kitchens like these:
And I have to say, Teresa is right. Gray is the perfect backdrop for our really bright, white kitchen.
Warning: The next time we choose a Martha Stewart color, we’ll have it mixed into another paint brand. It peels and took two coats over primer. The quality is non-existent and it cost more than the other brands at the Home Depot.
More pics (of our room) to come soon, promise!
