"GRAY'S" ANATOMY

For the past year or two the color gray has made a comeback.  I have always loved gray in fashion, but never on my walls.  Until now.  The first time I had a "heart beating out of my chest moment" over gray was at Scotts Antique Market in Atlanta, Georgia two years ago.  I love Scott's...it is always inspirational...I could go off in another direction talking about how much I love Scott's but I won't...today anyway.  I get over there for ideas every chance I get.  Everywhere I turned was something gray...pillows, armoires, desks, mirrors, lamps...gray was everywhere.  I referred to it as French Gray.  I came home wanting to change every room in my house to beige and gray.  I didn,t because my husband's heart rate goes sky high everytime I come home with new makeover ideas.  I even found a blogger obsessed with gray.  Check out her blog at http://www.aperfectgray.com/.  I found several colors I may use for my future bedroom makeover from this blog.  I also love these cabinets...

If you haven't already figured it out...I'm.Obsessed.With.Gray!!!  Thus the inspiration for the frames I just painted below.  They look great on a wall alone or in a grouping.

 
Hootenanny frames in 3 different styles and sizes
