perfect shade of gray

This quick little post is entirely unrelated to photography. {consider yourself forewarned}

Chicago is in the middle of a messy winter storm: snow, followed by freezing rain, then back to snow. We're anticipating a high of 13 degrees tomorrow. Yes indeed, winter is here.

While the wind howls outside, I've been spending all my time inside... with lots and lots of paint. You see, since I'm unable to do much along the lines of heavy-lifting or operating power tools, I've been relatively useless throughout this whole home renovation process. That is, until now, when suddenly, sixteen gallons of multicolored paint have appeared in our living room, and I'm the one who's in charge of getting that paint on the walls, inside of a week. Yikes.

It's a daunting task... but the colors make it better. I have creamy tones picked out for the kitchen, something a bit different all set for the living room, and a funky green ready and waiting for baby's room. But my little studio space had me stumped. It's a tiny room, and for the life of me, I couldn't decide on a color---until today, when I stumbled upon Benjamin Moore's Classic Gray.

Ironically, it's the same color as the sky outside... but it's got a cheerful tone to it, I promise :)

Between tonight and tomorrow, I'm hoping to put in about fifteen hours' worth of painting. If you think of it, prayers for my sanity would be deeply appreciated ;)

{also, if you live in the area, and would like to help slap some paint on the walls, I can promise you cheerful conversation, lots of Christmas music, and payment in the Starbucks beverage of your choice. sounds too good to pass up, eh?!}
