Are You Ready For Some Mushroom?

As I mentioned previously,

G.O. has been busily replacing all of our original woodwork upstairs.

Before:

And, in conclusion, even more during:

My goal for all this beautiful woodwork?

I want to paint it gray with warm white walls.

This time I’m choosing a gray

which skews a bit more beige than plain Jane gray.

Something just like this,

which (my personal favorite), Country Living magazine,

is calling Mushroom:

A Pinterest search for Mushroom yielded this yummy photo:

I have a Pittsburgh Paint fan deck upstairs this morning,

hoping to find the most perfect Mushroom.

The good news is that I found 3 contenders!

The lightest — Swirling Smoke:

Or perhaps something in the medium range, Ghost Writer:

Or the darkest Mushroom, Stonehenge Greige:

(Greige is another word for Mushroom, by the way.)

Here’s my inspiration photo again:

My 2 top contenders are the medium, Ghost Writer,

or, if I am brave enough, the dark, Stonehenge Greige.

Stay tuned!
