My new gray walls

My kitchen has a new coat of lovely gray paint. The color truly freshened the look of the space. For those of you that weren't around for the kitchen reno, let me show you what we were working with originally.



Mmm.. good times.



We were so happy with the results, but I felt the color was wrong, and it took me a whole year to get around to changing it. 


And after....





To me, the deep orange in the dining room balances so much better with the gray than with the yellow. 



You can't tell, but she LOVES the new color!

Love the color and your kitchen. I wonder if I will get the motivation to paint my living room the gray blue I wanted instead of the baby boy room blue it ended up??? Only time will tell. I have no motivation currently so we'll see how it goes! Good job getting to it! I love all your plates so much too!

Love your plate collection - especially that gorgeous bee one. And yes, the grey sets it all off with a warmth and an aplomb.
