It's About Time

Here's the colors!
Yes gray!
Bedroom, top color.
Living room, bottom color.
I am so sick of white!
I really needed a change!
It's on!
Been painting my little heart out with the help of my daughter!
Thank you Sarah!

Goodbye chandelier!

Goodbye white tile!
Hello Lillie!

Goodbye chandelier number 2!

Hello gray!
I was so nervous while I was painting I almost fainted!

Hello mister floor man!
As most of you all know,
I've had hard wood flooring laying in my sunroom for over a year now!
It's finally happening!
It's getting laid!

Thank you! Thank you!
Thank you!
I love you mister floor man!

The flooring actually makes the gray seem a little lighter!
I can't wait to get all my white furniture in the room!
I think it's really gonna pop against those gray walls!

I'm loving it!
Be still my heart!
Can you tell I'm excited?

I will be adding some white baseboard!
I even painted my bedroom gray!
It's a little lighter!
Doesn't look like it in the picture.
It's not much lighter,
but it is what it is!
I'm just happy to have it painted!

Oh! Miss Lillie!
How did you get in there?
Oliver is due any day now!
We are on pins and needles!

Sweet Young Journey said...

I'm so happy for you Theresa! It's looks amazing and your white furniture is going to look beautiful in that room! I can't wait to see it all finished!
I'm in love with the first chandelier, where is it going?
Have a great week!

Vintage Green said...

WHOA!!!! What a change for you!!!
I love the color.....I think it's going to be stunning!!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

With all the white, it is going to be so pretty. Looking forward to seeing the finished rooms.
Look at that sweet face ! Not the floor men. :-D


Ich kann Dich gut verstehen - lange Zeit hatten wir im Wohnzimmer 2 rote Wände - es sah wirklich gut aus - aber irgendwann brauchte ich eine Veränderung - nur ganz in weiss sollte es nicht sein. Ich habe ein Grau gefunden, das sehr weich wirkt und nun sind wir happy.
Ich wünsche Dir, dass Du Dich sehr wohl in Deinem "neuen" ZImmer fühlst und bin schon sehr gespannt, wie es fertig eingerichtet aussehen wird.
Liebe Gruesse

Sue said...

Wow the room is looking great! If you need someone to haul those chandies away for you they would look perfect in my old house!!!

Never would have thought of that paint color but it is going to be a great look I believe!!

Cheryl said...

I absolutely love it! Great color choices! Can hardly wait to see everything back in place, or rearranged, painting will make you want to change more things around, and make you want to sell more stuff! A lot of work, but a lot of fun too!

ShantyGirl said...

I think the contrast of the gray you picked with white furniture is going to really look cool, I am so happy to see someone take a completely different step than everyone else and do what they want to do. I was very tired of white when I painted my house a complete crayola box four years ago. Love it!

Victorian1885 said...

What a beautiful change.. we have painted our new condo Seagull Grey from BM and are loving it too!


d. reyné said...

I love the color...so elegant and cozy!
The floors are looking amazing! I love the contrast between the walls and the floors!
I am so excited for you and can't wait to see what you do!
Have fun!
(That is one cute grandbaby!)
Hugs from here

Garden Antqs Vintage said...

Girl, it looks so great! And Lillie is getting so big and prettier every day. Now, why would you tell the tileman you love him when you have your own pool boy to tell this too :)

Elizabeth said...

This looks fabulous! I love it and cannot wit to see it set up with the furnitue.

Blue Creek Home said...

I thought I was dreaming when I saw this!!!! I absolutely love love love your new gray palette. I still enjoy seeing all white rooms, even though it would never work in my house. Your furniture will seem new with the stronger backdrop.
You are going to feel like you are in a new place!!!
Wondering where you're headed with the light fixtures???

NanaDiana said...

TOT- I love it. One of my fondest memories was going to visit someone from NY that owned a little department store and lived above it in Athens, PA. I was babysitting their grandchildren and when I got there the interior of their place was all painted gray. I had never seen anyone that had gray paint before. Their artwork just popped off the walls. That memory has always stuck with me..even though I never copied it. Your place is looking gorgeous. What a difference that white moulding will make too. I can't WAIT to see it all "dressed". I am almost as excited as you. xo Diana

Faded Charm said...

I'm loving that gray...do tell what it is. Can't wait to see how all your whites "pop" with your lovely new walls:-)


oldgreymare said...

SOOOO excited for you!

The Feathered Nest said...

All I can say is GORGEOUS, woman!!!! I love your new changes...please keep showing us pics, OK? And that angel grandbaby is the most beautiful of all....keep us posted on everything! hugs and love, Dawn

Imperfections said...

As much as we all love white , we need change after a while. I'm going from darker to all white. It feels so refreshing to me. But in a couple of years I'll be craving color again.

Jackie said...

It looks so sophisticated...I can't wait to see the finished room. Congrats on getting the floor done. I'm surprised Craig Smith didn't do it!

A Wild Thing@Sweet Repose said...

OMG...I can feel your excitement all the way here in Ioway...LOVE the grey!!!

Now that we're getting an arctic blast(85 degrees)I'm gonna start on my upstairs and yes, it'll be grey...heehee!!! I remember following my husband around on the floor as each strip of flooring was laid, what a thrill...I'm so excited for you and Craigsmith, what a transformation...eeeeee!!!


Jane said...

Your room looks gorgeous!! I love the gray too. I have had a can of gray paint for 4 months now sitting in my son's bedroom. I was going to try and paint it before he got home for the summer but that didn't work. Now he's heading back to school in two weeks and hopefully it will be painted before he comes home for Christmas :)
The hardwood floor is beautiful and makes such a difference in your room.
Look forward to seeing the finished room.

Anne Lorys - Fiona and Twig said...

It's gonna be gorgeous Theresa, I can tell already!!!!!

trash talk said...

It's a good thing you didn't start out with a photo of Miss Lillie or I'd never got any further. She is gorgeous!
I notice Craigie Poo is supervising. Is that a good thing? LOL
P.S. I had to fight myself. There is a joke in this post that I'm dying to say...but I'll be a lady and keep my mouth shut!
P.P.S. It's gonna be tray sheek ala TOT when completed.

Carole said...

I love it already and you haven't even done your magic yet.

Lillie is just precious! You need to include her in every post!

Ido said...

Beautiful shade of gray, your room is going to be gorgeous, can't wait to see it finished!

House Wren said...

Wow!! It looks soooo wonderful, I love it! I know it was nerve racking, I just painted that store in Wimberley and it was hard to decide a color of gray. But, I think it looks great with the hardwood floors also, you will love it!

See you soon!
House Wren

Sandi said...

I am loving gray these days and yours is beautiful! Putting in your floor reminds me of doing that in our dining room several years ago. Sure thankful for a son who works at a modular home manufacturer. He can do anything!
(But then so can my hubby :)
I would have to use a light gray in my house or it would look like a dungeon, but I do love yours too!!!!

Zita - Mlle Magpie said...

What an exciting change for you, Theresa! Grey is so chic and definitely a huge colour now. I can't wait to see it all when it's done - I think it's going to be very chic and fabulous!!!

Olde Tyme Marketplace said...

OMGGIRL, I cannot WAIT to see the end result! What is happening with the 2 chandys? Are they coming back or being sold? (just wondering)I would love to do the hardwoods, I need to save for awhile tho. I'll be curious to find out the paint color. Oh I can't stand it. Hurry & finish please!

from me to thee......... said...

J Hill Designs said...
