We have used gray in our spaces as well. It is my new favorite neutral! It is looking great, and I am so jealous of those counters!
I can't wait until we can actually USE the counters. I'm so afraid of getting water on them! We have five more coats to go and I somehow have to figure out how to do it while the boy is gone! I'm loving the grey too! It is the color I wish I had in the living room (that looks baby blue).
PAINT woo hoo! I really dig the gray...and the pig! The shelf is great, too (ok im gushing). Hope you're feeling relieved. The trash can full of ruined food blows (big time), but it's done. What are your plans for the red bench?
Thanks! The paint makes a huge difference! Hopefully, TODAY the fabric I love will come in (its been on backorder). Then the bench will get recovered in this print:http://pinterest.com/pin/178173728977536177/
