Polexia Aphrodisia said it first but I'm quoting it too, "It's all happening..."
(I'll award an Atta Boy if someone can tell me what movie that's from.)
We finally agreed on a paint color and picked up 6 gallons of it over the weekend. I'm sure we'll need more but it's a start.
We were looking for was a gray-beige or a "greige" color. We bought 13 different samples, painted 5 different walls with a square of each before choosing one. (Why on earth? Because the house gets a lot of light from different angles and we wanted to make sure the all-over color looked good all over.)
Drumroll, the winner was Oatbran from Valspar, which was one of the first two samples that we ever brought home.
When in direct light it looks like the sample below, more beige, and when in darker light it's definitely more gray. It's two faced.
We had the color matched with Sherwin Williams Duration paint in a matte finish.
Gotta go, I have work to do!
