You're Such a Smartie!

I don't think I ever actually said it, but you little smarties put two and two together. Last week, when I wrote this post about a new favorite color combination, gray and green, you guys just figured that these were the colors that we're doing our office in. And you were right! I guess I wasn't as slick as I thought I was, since just the day before I'd posted a little blurb about painting our office. Oh well.

Not a whole lot of progress has been made, besides the painting of the room being finished. Thank goodness. The color I used was Pigeon Gray by Kilz. The paint is a flat finish, because I read several places that satin or semi-gloss finish didn't always work great with grays, several people saying that it was "too shiny." I was a little bit worried about the flat finish at first, but since it is not going to be a high traffic area, I think we will be fine. 

My camera is currently out of order. My camera battery has officially died and I haven't been able to make it to the local Best Buy for a replacement this week. I promise I will post pictures of my walls this weekend. Hold me to that, okay?

Until then I wanted to show you a little something so that you can kind of see the way that I am heading. Here is a mood board that I created on OlioBoard {which I heard about through Michaela}.


My "Haves," "Needs," and "Wants":

I ALREADY HAVE: 
    -Black filing cabinet
     -Black bookshelf
     -Desk

I STILL NEED:
     -I have the desk but still need to choose a green paint to paint it with
      -Gotta figure out how to give our filing cabinet a good coat of paint. Looks kinda rough.

I REALLY WANT:
    -I'm hoping to create my own silhouette artwork
     -Striped ottoman
     -White curtains {although I'm open to other colors or designs}
     -Green storage boxes
