Now that the flooring has been laid throughout the main floor, we're finally able to set up our guest rooms (friends and family, take note!) We're calling this room the gray room. Walls of Sherwin Williams Peppercorn paint leftover from the kitchen makes the naming process easy. And while we're trying to keep things light and bright in this house, we're pretty much in love with this color. It's so rich. So moody. In some light it's faded, others it's inky (see the side-by-side photos below as evidence.) We're fans.
And yes, we've yet to install the baseboard. We've yet to paint it, for that matter.
This room is also the new home for our Duncan Phyfe drop-leaf table. We love this table during holiday mealtimes with tons of people gathering. Keeping it in this room makes it easy to bring out when needed.
Things have definitely changed since move-in day. The room used to look like this:
And so far, we've managed to get it this far:
Still to do:
- paint the trim/baseboards/doors white
- install the baseboards, closet doors, door to room once they're all painted and cured
- replace the ceiling fan with something brighter--hopefully vintage and inexpensive!
- pretty it up with some art, a chair and other fun things
Still, it's all about the progress!
