It may be sunny outside but it's grey in here...

In my email this morning was the latest Houzz Weekly Idea newsletter. Inside was an article about how hot grey is at the moment:

These pictures make me want to paint my cabinets grey...

It made me realize just how much I have been subconsiously using a lot of grey in my projects and home lately:


Two of the chalkboards I recently made for my boys are different shades of grey...





A few of my recent furniture make-overs have found themselves grey...


(I even found this cute little grey kitty to put into the photo shoot of my newly painted thrift store find...more on that later this week)


leather top table surprise


My bedroom dressers project


Even the two rugs and our towels in our master bath are grey colored...

please ignore the ugly linoleum floor... if we weren't renting this would be the first thing to go!

I guess I'm officially a part of the grey trend and didn't even know it!

I've got a crush on grey. I love how it can be warm or cool. It's the new neutral!
