Shades of Gray

I have like a ZILLION other projects that are more important, but I'm stuck on re-doing my dining room.  This is the way it looks right now...

This is such a BAD picture, all yellowy, but my lazy butt doesn't want to snap a new one so I pulled this from an earlier post.

Everything is going away, except the dining room chairs and this...

I could never get tired of my drippy chandy!

So, I want to paint the room GRAY.  This is the color I'm thinking about..

{Benjamin Moore}

I think it will look really pretty with the white crown moulding in the room. 

I found my big round table!  Those of you who follow me regularly know that I've been looking for one for the last year!  I'll post a picture of it later, but I found it on Craig's List for $300.  It's 72" and solid wood and it's sitting in my garage waiting patiently for me to stain it!

So, here are some fabrics I'm looking at for the chairs and possibly curtains...

{from Ikea.  I'm not sure if the pattern will work for chairs, but I think it would make really cool curtains}

{There's that Ikat fabric!  This one is from West Elm}

I would love to find a thrift store dresser to paint and use as a buffet, kind of like this one...

I'll be posting more on the dining room as it progresses!

That will look great!! I'm getting ready to paint our master bedroom gray this weekend. I wish I could just snap my fingers and the whole room would be painted. :)

I can't wait to see how it turns out. I'm currently thinking of using grays in my bedroom (it's currently all dark cherry wood). It's a big step to refinish all the furniture, but I'm so sick of how dark it is in there.
