This weekend, I finally tackled our dining room's much-needed repainting project. After sharing some gray options with you on Facebook and carefully observing the color at all times of day and night, my husband and I decided on Benjamin Moore's Vale Mist, in the company's no-VOC Natura line. Vale Mist provided a cool, elegant gray that I thought would look great with our artwork. I also wanted to use this gray to add a modern look to the traditional wool carpet that my mother-in-law kindly gifted to us. I couldn't be happier with the transformation. However, I know that gray paint isn't for everyone — take a look and then let me know; did you prefer the yellow, or do you like the change in color?
