The Nursery - Shades of Gray

Turning the extra room upstairs into a nursery is going to be quite the undertaking, but a very fun project nonetheless! The first step...picking out the paint color.

We decided that whether Baby Shep is a girl or boy, we want to go with gray for the walls. If it is a girl, the stuff in the room will be pink, black, and white. If it is a boy, the room will be filled with navy, red, green, and yellow (basically primary colors).

I thought picking out a shade of gray would be easy enough, but it is crazy how many options there are! We narrowed it down to four and tested them on the wall.

I think we are going with the lightest one on the far left-hand side (note that they all look a bit darker in person). It is called "Sparrow."

What do ya'll think?

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; Topo Chico; reading; coffee; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows and podcasts; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. That pretty much sums it up.
