Cathedral Gray

I love that color.

And I loovve that our new place is finally coming together. This "fixer upper" is almost, well, completely fixed up :).

I got a few questions about that "tan" color from my previous basement picture. The thing is, it's not really tan, it's gray - Cathedral Gray to be exact. Shooting without my flash in low lighting makes color's look a little different. (you know I rarely use my flash, right?) So here are some pics of the basement with my flash on so you can see that color better. It is by far, one of my favorite colors we've ever used...


And here is a glimpse of where we eat...

where the girls play school...

And where they play Dress- Up...

They loovve those little mirrors - a total hit.

Well, I'm off to get some little girls to bed. We have a pretty full weekend ahead, and a little girl who is turning 6 tomorrow :)(party next weekend). Mama CAN'T believe it!

Hope you all had a great week!

When I heard gray was the hot color this year, I was skeptical...but I LOVE it! The spaces for the girls are so sweet! AND I'd love your eating area! I just learned red and yellow hues enhance food...so your girls should love all your cooking! :)

These colors are great and made me feel cheerful and inspired to PAINT! But first... washing the windows. And a few other things. Do you have to pull all-nighters to get projects like painting finished? I only have two little ones and I can't imagine finishing a paint job. :(
