The Queen of 89%.

Yep, that's me.
I get things 89% finished, and then I come to a stop... As if a brick wall was placed in front of me.

For instance, I finished the blue shelf and the corner. I also received some quilts for Christmas that are happy to call my bed their home.

Now my dilemma: the walls.
I don't know what color to paint them.
Gray? Yes.
BUT THERE ARE 100,000 GRAYS TO CHOOSE FROM! Ugh.
I don't want it to be too cold.
I don't want it to be too dark.
I don't want it to lean to the pinks.
I don't want it to look brown.
I just want gray.
PS. This picture was taken after some thinning... Just so you know. :)

I really like two: elephant gray and graceful gray.

Here is a close up of elephant gray:

And another of graceful gray.

**Above, they look pretty much identical... At least on my computer.
These pictures make them look way more purple than they really are.

Also, meet my new friend.
She is so pretty.
But like the rest of my goodies, I'm stuck with were to put her. 
She just goes so nicely with everything.

 
The beginning of the summer will consist of getting my room done.
It's taken me three years, I'm pretty darn ready to be finished with it. :) haha.

The gray you posted is beautiful! Restoration hardware has beautiful grays as does sherman williams. Gray has really grown on me over the past few years. I can't wait to see what you decide. I usually buy 4-5 samples of differing shades of the color I like and then paint a good sized square of each next to each other on my wall and stare at them for a day or two before taking the plunge. Good luck!
