Happy Friday!

so, i've have been vacillating for the last 3 weeks on floor paint color, but do think i am getting close.

my original and true inspiration is the JCREW shopping bag. have you seen the new bag...the color is shockingly perfect..it is cross between craft and recycled news paper gray (meaning a warm, mushroomy grey). anyway, when i was at bmoore 3 weeks ago i picked a color in the same family..but i didn't quite get to the depth i wanted too because i didn't have a bag handy, so back to the paint shop tomorrow to get them to match the bag. (thanks for the bag maya)

thanks 24 friend.

so, the real story is, we are painting the laundry room so we can put the washer and dryer in, the rest is still total demo phase. i'm a bit ahead of myself and hoping this will be the touch that will move things along......

i am going to take some photo's for posting today.....stay tuned.

i love seeing the origins of people's color fascinations. i usually go through old magazines and start ripping out pages taping them to my walls!

Isn't it great when you just know you picked the perfect color?!

Can't wait to see some more pics of the progess!

SOOO HAPPY FOR YOU!

Having this little bit of doneness there will most definitely be a motivating factor...so helpful in the keeping things in moving forward department. Paint does that...it's a connection to seeing the end of the tunnel more clearly.

Happy Halloween!

I love the color too. Was wondering which paint color/name/brand ended up matching the bag the best - would like to get some for myself!
