Okay..So I’m not gonna lie…I went a little gray-z when our gray paint turned BLUE…I freaked out to say the least…
Does THIS look GRAY to you?! The painters AND our builder tried to say it didn’t look blue at all… I mean seriously these men are color blind..
Okay, so after TONS of online research, references from family and friends we tested out four different Sherwin Williams paint colors, because I sure didn’t want to try and have them “match” another color after this blue catastrophe, which was going to cost us an extra $1,100.00…Yep, $1,100.00 just to repaint just the living room, kitchen, foyer, dining room and upstairs hallway… Can’t afford to mess up this time…
We tested four different samples in two different places.
This area below is in the living room right below the stairs.
This area we tested was on the bar in the kitchen.
We had mixed feelings about every color.
- Agreeable Gray – Seemed too light, but was definitely Gray, not blue.
- Grayish – WAYYYY to purple.
- Colonnade Gray – GREAT color, but seemed a little dark compared to the Gray Owl.
- Worldly Gray – Beautiful color, but more tan than we really wanted.
So in the end, once again, my amazing husband said I could choose. Let’s face it, this allows him to say that he isn’t responsible if I don’t like the color again. HAH! Well played, well played.
In the end I ALMOST choose more gray samples, but really felt that the Colonnade Gray was what I was looking for, so that’s what I chose.
Here’s the reveal!
NOW the paint is PERFECT!!! ❤ ❤
Colonnade Gray is officially my FAVORITE paint color and seems to look amazing in natural light, unnatural light and shaded areas!!
Note to Self and All Reading – Don’t ask Sherwin Williams to match Benjamin Moore’s Gray Owl…Ever…
