Happy Tuesday! I hope anyone that was off from work yesterday, enjoyed the three day weekend! I spent the time painting. First room was my soon to be home office and then I carried it into the second floor hallway.
I must admit, painting is no easy task. I am definitely paying for it; being achy and sore all over. I have an appreciation for those that are professional painters. It takes a lot of prep work (taping, cutting in), patience and practice. My legs got a work out, going up and down the ladder when I was cutting in the top edge of the walls and rolling.
All the paint colors in our home are by Benjamin Moore. I'm just a big fan of the company and love the quality of their paints. Since I'm trying to get a home office designed for the unused room, I knew I need to paint the room. The existing colors in that space are not going to work for the design I have planned. I knew I wanted to keep the space light and wanted a shade of gray. I decided to go with Revere Pewter. Depending on the lighting and the time of day, it's gray with some beige (greige). It also works nicely with the wallpaper I have in mind (wallpapering one wall).
After painting the room, I loved it so much, I decided to paint the second floor with the same color. My soon to be home office, is a half wall room (no door) and open. The paint color I replaced was Hush AF-95.
It's a subtle change but makes a huge impact. It's lighter and a cleaner look. I love the color! I kept the color Sparrow at the end of the hall; used as an accent color. It blends nicely with Revere Pewter.
Here are some pictures:

Thinking of adding a molding piece of some sort to separate the room from the hallway.
