50 Shades of Gray

Yes, I really did just title this blog entry, "50 Shades of Gray".  Am I really the only one that has no desire to read this book?  We are having our house painted and I have spent the last few weeks obsessing over finding the perfect shade of gray in the Sherwin Williams line (I'm a Benjamin Moore girl at heart).  Gray can be extremely difficult.  Both of our girls rooms are painted gray, I think the color was called, "Simply Gray", and they both look like a pale blue.  We wanted a darker gray for the exterior and wanted to try to find the truest gray possible.  My wonderful hubby gave me total design freedom for the first time so the pressure was on.    

Here are the before pictures. 

This is the back.  Look at that jazz.  Horrible.  I'm pretty sure that the last time the house was painted they skipped the back of the house and the garage to cut costs.  You can peel it off with your fingers.

They are finishing up today and then I'll post new pictures.  It's a pretty great transformation if I do say so myself.  I'm excited to show the after pictures!
